I went through a lot of different socks to find out what worked to help with the extreme sensations and pain. Maybe try a loose fitting fleece on your leg that is sewed to fit your foot/leg? My pain is now finally at a manageable level. I had to do a lot of desensatization with my foot and PT to get it where it is now. I just know that keeping my feet/ankle warm, helps the pain and cold feelings tremendously otherwise i'm in burning pain all of the time when the foot is cold. The merino wool seems to be the softest. The best shoe that i wore for a long time was a bigger sized crock. Those shoes were a life saver! Keep trying different things, don't give up. Keep yourself active so the RSD has a hard time settling in. It hurts to move but keep the leg active. I hope this helps.
