In brief: Adding

Adding to the previous answer. Ace bandages can be a source of discomfort or exacerbate or worsen exiting discomfort if they are applied too tight or over the wrong place.
Often it is though that tighter is better for bandages and splints but especially one the boney prominences of the elbow and the hand and ace bandage can cause more harm than good is misapplied. While lateral epicondyitls, median epicondylitis are one concern here, the comment regarding not tolerating pressure on the legs lead to the importance of being seen by a physician.
