I do have some varicose veins but they are in my upper back thigh and lower leg none in the upper inner thighs. But I have been having lower right pelvic pain. My whole right abdomen sort of is sore but mostly the lower right, where I would believe an ovary to be. It is usually a dull ache but sometimes I get a sharp twinge of pain. My lower back and right thigh hurts too. All dull. I do get relief laying down or even sitting sometimes.

Women with a history of a tilted or prolapsed uterus or varicose veins in their legs and/or anus have a higher risk of pelvic congestion. Pelvic congestion syndrome symptoms are rather common and can be linked to other conditions as well, which makes a diagnosis difficult to come by. Conditions such as endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease and fibroid tumors are usually ruled out first before a doctor suspects pelvic congestion syndrome.
it felt like someone was ripping my legs off at the joints where they connect to your pelvic area. walking, turning in bed, even just sitting up in bed was painful. i had complained to my dr, and she said there was nothing to take or do to stop the pain. good part is that it eased up within a week, and went away after a few weeks. hope you feel better soon!
I found this advice in a thread from 2009 and sounds similar to what you described. These swollen veins can be due to varicose veins or superficial thrombophlebitis. Penile varicose veins may bruise during sexual intercourse and thus wearing of a condom is highly recommended. Also use of lubricants is recommended during masturbation or during sexual intercourse to avoid bruising the vein. Mondor’s disease is superficial thrombophlebitis of the penis.
I've had a sonogram of the main artery in that leg and pelvic area looking for any kind of obstruction. I've had a regular foot x-ray and a weight bearing x-ray along with a MRI and a bone scan. Everything came back negative. Ive been to 3 regular doctors and 2 podiatrist along wih 1 sports medicine clinic trying to find an answer. I have not had a definite diagnoses, only maybes from a nueroma (with a b12 injecton) to tendonitis to possible nerve damage.
It sounds like you have congested veins in your vaginal area. Be on the lookout for vaginal veins that are like varicose veins. When your baby drops or grows to a certain extent it can exert pressure to cause bruising and vein leakage--bruising. Also, the hormones that relax the vaginal area for impending childbirth can also relax blood vessels and cause them to buckle. Hang in there--almost done. I would call the doctor and let him or her know about the bruising.
Dr performed an internal ultrasound which showed the pelvic congestion varicose veins all pressing on my uterus. Dr performed a laparoscopy. Found moderate endometriosis and of course, varicocele or large tangle of varicose veins, only on left side, due to nutcracker. Dr removed endo with laser. Dr also used laser ablation on varicocele walls to prevent it from pulling on my uterus. I am now three weeks post laparoscopy. Initially my left kidney hurt, but has since stopped.
Hello, Some of the causes of vaginal and pelvic pain include persistent vaginal yeast infection, endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, vaginitis, pelvic inflammatory disease, pelvic floor tension myalgia, pelvic congestion syndrome due to varicose veins or vulvodynia. You need to get a physical examination done from a gynecologist to confirm the diagnosis.
June 19, 2003 At A Glance Chronic pelvic pain afflicts up to 15% of U.S. women of child-bearing age. Ovarian vein reflux, or pelvic congestion syndrome, is a leading cause of chronic pelvic pain.

They finally listened to my pleas of pain in my pelvic and did a pelvic MRI on me only to discover I had Pelvic Congestion. I was dumbfounded. Everything I had read stated that only woman who have had multiple pregnancies develop this syndrome. After a failed IVF, and a couple attempts at chlomid, and folistm, I was still childless. My doctor then proceeded to give me the Pelvic Congestion Diagnosis and sent me away telling me to keep trying.
Pelvic Congestion Syndrome It's like varicous veins in the pelvic area and vulva and such. I had it a little with 1st preggy. More with the 2nd now just at the end of my period. The hormones cause the blood to pool there more so your more aware of it. It's like a heavy-ness, dull ache. If you get what I do then it's just engorgment of all the veines down there.
-I also have a very hard/stiff penis when flaccid (like but 2inches long) -I experience a burning sensation in my penis often in the veins. -I have varicose veins on my testicles. -my testicles are smaller than before. -I have gradually had a harder and harder time getting erections and they are not "full". When erect my penis is about 5.5 inches instead of 6.
went and saw my doctor and she sent me for ultrasound and xray which came back fine with the exception of some minor vascular calcification which is unrelated (in wrong area).
March is DVT (Deep Venous Thromboses) awareness month. A time to educate and inform the public about the risk factors, prevention, identification and treatment of this preventable and potentially fatal process. DVT, simply put, is a blood clot that develops in a deep vein of the body. The most harmful consequence of the development of DVT is that pieces of the clot can break off and migrate to the heart or lungs causing acute difficulty breathing and overwhelming stress on the heart.
I am 50+, male, british driver. Have problems with varicose veins in lower right leg (for which i take horse chestnut and butchers broom) also lower back problems - just recently started up again coinciding a bit with these warm feeling episodes. Not overweight or sedentary, fairly regular cyclist. Will return to osteopath and make a GP appointment to try and learn more. Very interesting to read of so many people with similar symptoms.
WoW! I've had a warming sensation in my calf/foot area for months and after some research and medical help(my wife works in an ER and speaks with drs) I thing I have a solution to MY problem. I've noticed that the warming sensation comes and goes with the pain in my lower back. I was injured on the job several years but being an avid outdoors type, I still continue to exercise. Recently I've started golfing several times a week and have aggrivated the back injury.
There are various reasons for this like ovum not being formed, polycystic ovary, hormone imbalance, hypothyroidism, local infection, blocked tubes etc. In males it can be infection, STD, varicose veins, hydroceles, poor sperm count, not enough motile sperms etc. Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net and without running some basic tests please discuss these possibilities with your gynecologist once.
Women have been very much underserved in this area -- we aren't crazy, we have varicose veins! Especially if you have a history of bad leg veins and/or sexual abuse, please check it out. Good luck to you.
I have symphis pubis dysfunction - it started as right groin pain and then spread to the entire pelvic area after a CVS procedure because I was in stirrups too long. Did yours get worse after delivery? That is often the case. You very well may have osteitis pubis, but it is a little unusual that it is only on the right side (or is the pain in the entire pelvic area and just the swelling and redness on the right side).
Try seeing a Vascular DR. you might have DVT. Deep vein thrombosis, commonly referred to as "DVT", occurs when a blood clot, or thrombus, develops in the large veins of the legs or pelvic area. Some DVT’s may cause no pain, whereas others can be quite painful. With prompt diagnosis and treatment, the majority of DVT’s are not life threatening.
The only explanation for the pain that has been proposed following a laporoscopy is that wires implanted to embolise pelvic veins for treatment of varicose veins have migrated and become prominant as a result of the fitting of the mirena coil. There seems to be no other irregularities in the pelvic area so my gynaecologist has suggested the removal of both my ovaries.
I have been diagnosed with Interstitial cystitis, however, the pain you describe, sounds more to me like my Pelvic Congestion Syndrome symptoms. PCS is like varicose veins in the pelvic region. The pain increases when your on your feet a lot, or if your constipated or have hard bowel and strain etc. Because I have IC, and also MSK with both kidneys full of stones, and chronic infection.
It is hard to locate the pain exactly but I know that somewher in the pelvic area. It is in the right side of the body, the same side as the vein appears on the right side of the penis. However, this pain is not severe because i do not feel it when I am running or walking or do daily activities, but I feel when I go sleep or sitting for some time. I can feel it but not that I would need pain killer.
It also showed a some fluid build up in my pelvic area. The GYN doctor told me not to worry right now about cancer since noone in my family has ever had ovarian cancer and he said usually cancer when you have it hurts. I am having pain and it shoots up my back when I am sitting and I have this full feeling sometimes and bloating most of the time. He did say my Uterus was enlarged and I do have history of Fibroid which I have 2-4 right now that really haven't hurt me over the years.
Yes, there is a large increased blood flow in addition to blood volume in your body, and quite a bit of it is in the pelvic region to support the growing fetus. As a result, vaginal lips will swell, and become much larger. Just wait until you find varicose veins there! Don't you love pregnancy???
I have also had problems with my wrists for 5 yrs and have trunk varicose veins in both legs. I am getting annoyed that no one seems to believe me about my back problem, i can move here and there in my physical exams as i am very flexible.
