I find first thing in the morning after my leg has been elevationg all night, that its going to feel the worse...i'm not sure that physically there is any extra blood pooling (compared to the rest of the day) but i think the nerves and tissue have had a break for 8 hours and that sudden pooling is quite painful.
I noticed that if i do a few ROM exercises before getting up that it helps.
Also i try to remember to put my compression sock on.
