Common Questions and Answers about Varicose veins and knee pain

varicose-veins

The vein valves weaken or are damaged causing blood to backflow. If your varicose veins are causing you pain or discomfort, it is best that you have this evaluated by your doctor for proper management. Endothermal ablation, sclerotherapy, and even phlebectomy may be indicated. Compression stockings may also help improve the circulation in the legs. Avoid standing or sitting still for long periods, and take regular breaks throughout the day. Take care and do keep us posted.
I have been experiencing severe varicose vein pain and problems in my left thigh. I have had problems for which I wear 20-30mmhG on my left leg below the knee. I am scheduled to fly from Oklahoma City to San Jose, Ca tomorrow afternoon/evening. I have a 2 hour, 35 minute flight from OKC to Las Vegas. I have about an hour and a half layover there with the remaining flight from Las Vegas to San Jose which is a 1 hour, 20 minute flight.
Hello, I have a large protruding blue vein at the back of my knee and a large palm sized blue patch under the skin below it- it may be veins below the skin but it's a very large area. For the last two months I've been unable to bend that leg without terrible pain, no crouching or kneeling at all. At night the whole leg aches constantly and I get fitful sleep. I am 40 years old, female and 5ft7ins tall, 186 pounds. Would losing weight fix this or do I need medical attention?
I also have the same problem this is my second pregnancy and there worse. And I have them every where to where the shocking wont help. I just elevate my feet hopefully that works for u as well.
I'm just mentioning the pain because I don't know anything about varicose veins and the type of pain they can cause, in case they are related in some way. Sorry for the wordy question. So: am I doing any damage by having straps that press on the veins and does pressing on the veins make them hurt?
The only visible symptoms are the enlarged veins on the penis and prominent varicose veins around my right knee and some prominent varicose behind my left knee (I think I have never had varicose problems prior to this). Is this all stress-related or a possible STD? I have been to see my doctor in week 3 and I am currently waiting on tests for Hep A, Hep B, Syphillis and HIV. The doctor did not feel the need to test for anything else after his examination.
It was all well until i went to a rock concert around a week and a half ago. The next day i noticed a bruise behind my knee and have had a dull pain at different times throughout the day, most prominently when standing. Ive had an utrasound and there was nothing untoward found. My question is, what could be causing this pain? Ive had some numbness on the top of my foot since surgery and was explained that this is common nerve damage.
Lower position of legs as maintained while driving/prolonged standing or sitting in one position is usually the cause of varicose veins/spider veins (the blue bulging veins). This happens due to stagnation of blood in the lower part of the leg or due to faulty valves in the deep veins which prevent upward squeezing of the blood. Also, if you sit in a particular portion for long, the leg muscles stop their contraction and relaxation and this prevents upward motion of the blood.
what could cause veins popping out in knee and calf..and severe pain in knee and calf..it started about a week ago while i was out walking. i have not been able to walk sense this happened..my knee is swelled a little bit and i did get a few bruises about the size of a quarter each.

So I check to see if my blood was clotting and they siad it was fine and so was my circulation. I still have the pain and you can feel it even it you can't see the viens like in my arms I can feel the veins swell sometimes. My mother in law just had one do this next to her eye. She went in and they told her that it was because on the blood thinners that she is on??? I have talked to some people about this and some say that when the Drink green tea it makes it worse?
I've also been experiencing daily tremors and twitches. Within the last week, I've been experiencing pain behind my knee and last night I felt a bulge. It is not an abscess, but more of a swell. I didn't do anything physically that would have casued and injury and while slightly overweight I'm not obese. The pain increases when sitting or standing too long. I don't have any visible varicose veins and have no history of that.
I have had ultra sounds several times to check for DVT's and Baker's Cyst (long history of torn meniscus and arthritis in knee). DVT and cyst are always negative. I do have varicose veins severe enough in that leg that I have to have 2 veins stripped, however the Vascular surgeon looked at my knee and said this was not caused by the veins. My orthopedist is stumped and I am frustrated. Any ideas?
I am on my third pregnancy and have varicose veins and spider veins so badly that I was pulled off work at 6 months pregnant. They look horrible and are incredibly painful but they did fade after I had the baby. I only have them on my right leg from the weight and pressure of where the baby is sitting.I am currently on modified bed rest to control the pain as well. I would recommend a compression stocking and you can try accupuncture as well.
I've tried everything that you are supposed to do to alleviate varicose and spider veins and it just makes them worse, especially wearing compression stockings. Seems to be the opposite problem as varicose veins, and I've even had doctors tell me that, but they have no idea what could be causing it. My guess is that it is part of Fibromyalgia since all my symptoms started at the same time and coincided with each other.
Deep vein thrombosis usually present with pain and swelling, warmth over the affected area, and changes in the skin color, such as turning pale, red or blue. While symptoms of varicose veins include fullness, heaviness, aching, and sometimes pain in the legs; visible, enlarged veins; mild swelling of ankles; brown discoloration and even skin ulcers near the ankle. With diabetes, monitoring of blood glucose to ensure normal levels is highly recommended.

I also have this pain behind the knee comes and goes and now i feel it in the back of my thigh but it comes and goes and can be in the knee or back of my thigh
The pain travels down into my feet where I can see the larger foot veins themselves twitching and spasming and it is quite uncomfortable. Eventually, I start getting random pain and numbness throughout my whole left leg, but mostly below the knee. Usually, it is triggered by sitting down on anything for even a short amount of time. Appears almost related to the angle at which I take my seat. When this is triggered, neither laying down nor standing help.

Hi, Thanks for writing in. Torn meniscus can cause pain in the knee, tenderness on palpation in the knee, but pain in the calf would not be due to a torn meniscus. It could occur due to a ruptured ACL, peripheral vascular disease like thrombosis,varicose veins, phlebitis;baker's cyst etc. I would suggest that you get an x-ray, MRI of the knee and colour doppler of the lower leg vessels. This would reveal any abnormality if present and treatment accordingly.
throbbing pain lower leg for about 2 weeks then it moved to back of my left knee - and its now at the back of my thigh. This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/297166'>SEVERE THROBBING THIGH PAIN</a>.
for the past 2 months I've experienced odd twitching and pain in my right leg. It started as twitching in my right calf that would only occur when I was sitting. Drinking coffee usually aggregated this. I have general anxiety disorder so I just chalked this up to anxiety and caffeine. Over the next couple weeks this kept occurring with twitching occurring some in my thigh and ankle. During this same time I began experiencing a dull ache in my butt, calf, and knee area.
it'll usually last a few days and go away. sometimes it is accompanied by knee pain (i dislocated my knee cap in high school about 17 yrs ago) And sometimes there is a radiating feeling in my inner thigh. sometimes I have all these symptoms at once or sometimes 1 or 2. a bit before it all started happening I noticed the veins behind my need were getting darker but not bulging. none of the areas feel warm and no redness. on the inside of both knees I have a large cluster of spider veins.
I do feel as though my veins are painful. I don't have varicose veins but have noticed an increase in spider veins in legs and larger veins have become more noticeable.
HI, Discuss with your Doctor regarding varicose veins, deep vein thrombosis and neurological factors etc, if they have not been ruled out previously. Hope this helps.
The archillies tendon joins the heel and the large muscle in the back of the lower leg. It is sounds like the tendon is retracting, which would give you the pain you have. Try icing it. Wrap a bag of veggies (you will not use them again)in a damp cloth. Rest your ankle on the bag. It will mold itself around the ankle and cool the tendon. The icy package should not touch the skin. Ice this way for about 15 minutes. Rest the ankle for 30 minutes while the veggie re-freeze.
