varicose-veins

Dear Ahmad, 2005 means , 5 years back. Swelling over feet and leg, may be due to many other reasons , except Varicose vein. If the swelling is causing pain while 1) squeezing the calf muscles around the knees, 2) moving the great toe of the foot, then we can still co-relate with Varicose vein. Else its related to lymphatic obstruction, for which we need to - 1) Keep the limb elevated , while sleeping,sitting 2) Massage of the limbs. 3) Control the body weight.

Hello missy029, It seems you are having most probably severe form of varicose <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vein</span>s. Varicose <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vein</span>s and telangiectasia (spider <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vein</span>s) are the visible surface manifestations of an underlying venous insufficiency syndrome. Venous insufficiency syndromes allow venous blood to escape from a normal flow path and flow in a retrograde direction into an already congested leg.
The thing that makes it worse in I have suffered with varicose <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vein</span>s in my legs which I have had treated but they seem to be coming back very quickly and I’m sure the dilation of my leg veins is accelerating this. If I am calm and feeling good I get no pain in my legs and feet but if I’m worked up I get pains in the arch of my foot and inside of my ankle below the bone, I also get a sensation in my feet of having things in my shoe mildly pressing in to my foot.
MRI on foot gave normal result but it cannot conclude that problem may occur in small capillaries on foot. No varicose <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vein</span>s observed on bilateral leg and no swelling occured on other part except foot and ankle. Actually I am now taking home leave from hospital and I didn't know what to do as I thought they will discharge me very soon. Please help!
Did you hurt your right foot? This swelling and redness could be due to a leg infection, secondary to trauma and bleeding or a blood clot in the leg. Have you undergone any recent surgery on the right leg, ankle or the foot? Is there any history of varicose veins or defective valves in the leg veins? I hope you are not taking any hormone like estrogens, perimenopausal? This needs urgent attention by a surgeon. Have you been checked for diabetes? It could be an abscess needing urgent drainage.
There can be some local causes also like varicose <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vein</span>s which can produce a swelling. Another important cause which is often missed is hypothyroidism, an impaired functioning of the thyroid gland, in which something known as non pitting edema occurs. It means that if you press the area of the swelling for at least a minute, no pit is formed. In some patients, something known as cyclic edema also occurs in which the underlying cause is not known but this edema comes and goes.
It does not hurt but it just looks swollen. The outside ankle bone and the front of the foot just blows up but no pain. Any idea how I can get rid of the swelling, I'm starting to get concerned and don't really want to wear the bandage anymore.
Never had dvt but have varicose <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vein</span>s in my right leg forming now too. 3 days ago I felt my left foot getting sore at night (same foot with stripped vein), and in the morning the side and top of my big toe joint was hard, swollen, shiny, red, painful, pretty much couldn't move it and I couldn't put much weight on it. My actual toe was numb when I walked on it. The rest of my foot and teos were fine.

Hello, I have a sibling that has bad feet & ankle swelling that comes and goes. They have not been able to find a cause or cure.

The most common causes of edema only in one foot are varicose <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vein</span>s and thrombophlebitis (inflammation of the veins) of the deep veins of the legs.

Hi, Foot, leg, and ankle swelling is common with the following situations: heart failure, kidney failure, or liver failure. In these conditions, there is too much fluid in the body.

I had a similar situation with my left shoulder, years and years ago - probably about twelve years, now. I had some real pain and swelling, and when the swelling came down, I had some visible veins at the hollow between my shoulder and my sternum. Similar to the ones in my leg, actually. Hey, Shoshin! There's a lot of people out there who think that the blood reflux thing is responsible for the lesions... wouldn't that be interesting?
I actually do think it is neurological. In the summers my right lower leg, ankle and foot swell and become dusky and cool. The ankle actually develops an effusion in the joint. This happened last summer, some of you might remember, and I was repeatedly checked for a DVT. Negative. Two doctors I saw said that it looked like Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, but without the pain. I did have a toe injury in that foot that started the whole problem.
