Varicose veins in the foot

Common Questions and Answers about Varicose veins in the foot

varicose-veins

I have had large varicose veins pop up simultaneously in my right hand, left wrist, both feet (larger on the right foot). They are all painful. If I let a limb dangle, blood pools inside and I feel like the limb is dead almost. My skin constantly feels the veins tugging. What would cause varicose veins to destroy my life like this? They just keep popping up everywhere...
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. 4) Rule out heart problems. If still , you are thinking in terms of varicose veins, then a Doppler scan would be helpful. Regards..
If I were to have surgery on these veins, w/ port wine being a vascular deformity would it be likely that I would have other veins become varicose later? I really want to have the surgery. My veins have been varicose since middle school. They are painful and restrict my exercise. I am extremely embarassed, and as could be expected, summer is the worst! I have 2 beautiful daughters that were born port wine free, and I would die to be able to wear dresses and shorts again.

Hi, Im am a 25yo male. 6 months ago i noticed a large saphenous varicose vein in my right leg. Ive subsequently had stripping surgery around 2.5 months ago. the vein was stripped to my knee but there is some remnents of small varocities behind the knee. 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.
Hello missy029, It seems you are having most probably severe form of varicose veins. Varicose veins and telangiectasia (spider veins) 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.
Hello Dear, Is your mother diabetic?Pain in the foot may be due to diabetes,nerve root compression,varicose veins etc.You should seek an expert opinion to find out the cause.Unless a physical examination is done it is difficult to comment upon.
I fractured my ankle about 7 years ago in the same leg I am getting these veins, and a year ago (being a former gymnast and cheerleader) I could hold my foot to my head with not pain at all, it now hurts to barely touch my toes and the veins throb and are very painful.

Never had dvt but have varicose veins 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.
burns include sunburn, insect bite or sting, starvation or malnutrition, surgery to leg or foot, blockade of lymph nodes in the legs or lymphatic obstruction. certain medications like hormones viz, estrogens, and testosterone, blood pressure medicines called calcium channel blockers etc. consult a surgeon for a detailed clinical evaluation and flow studies for blood flow in arteries, veins and lymphatics. Take care.
In Tarsal tunnel syndrome there is compression of the tibial nerve that runs down the side of the leg toward the foot. Varicose veins, cysts, swollen tendons, rheumatoid arthritis, ankle injury, and bone spurs all can lead to this syndrome. Diabetes mellitus, neuropathies, stress are other causes of needle like pains.Consult a doctor and get yourself evaluated. A complete clinical examination and work up for above mentioned conditions may help. Best of luck and kind regards!
This could be due to compression of tibial nerve as it passes through the tarsal tunnel in the foot. This can happen if you have varicose veins or swollen, corrugated veins due to damage venous valves. Clinical examination and nerve conduction study may be required. There are certain systemic causes, which can affect both the feet like vitamin deficiencies like B6, B12, B1 and niacin need to be assessed as per history of malnutrition and serum levels.
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. You must go to the emergency room and an urgent x ray done to check for any ankle fracture.
I have to get out of bed, stand on my toes and the cramp in the calf goes away. Only then can I return to bed. In the past I used to take salt which used to help, but that doesn't work anymore.
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. I guess the fear of getting/worsening varicose veins again is also fuelling my anxiety.
all veins for everyone are the same size, veins don't hurt(As if I was pretending to be in pain), its normal for your veins to get bigger when you standup(as if I would not have noticed that before if it was normal for ME). I am so concerned because I am 33 years old and this has just now started happening and it is has been off and on but consistently for the past month. If you hear anything please share. I am still in the process of testing for some cause or to eliminate all causes.
The slightest touch such as my hem of my pants or the covers in bed is extreemly painful. The first 24 hours I can barely walk on it. The second day my foot is still sensictive to touch, very swollen, looks like I have a bright red sock on, it's slightly warm to the touch. Its not as painful to walk after the first 24 hours. We've monitored my foods and found no comon that causes it. Many of the symptoms are the same as gout, but my blood tests come up negitive for gout.

The main reason is that there are 12 meridians in the body and 6 begin or end in the hands and 6 begin or end in the feet. I think the foot pads are excellent for detoxing. In fact, I have tried them. The one's on t.v. are much cheaper than the one's online. Try it out and see how you feel. You must feel better after detoxing. Drink lots of water. When I work on someone's feet they feel great for 2 weeks afterwards, whereas with massage you only feel good for a day.
Although without being able to examine you, I can not offer you the specific advice on diagnosis and treatment that you need, but I would try to provide you some relevant information about your health concern. Your symptoms most likely may appear due to varicose veins as twisted, visible and bumpy appearance. It appears due to increase in pressure on leg veins due to walking and standing a lot. Sometimes, this may cause constant aching pain as in your case.
Four days ago I had a small rectangular itchy red bump on top of my foot towards the inner arch. The next day the rectangle grew longer. The next day the line zig zaged towards the top of my foot in an extreamly curvy pattern with a new small bump where the zig zag ends. I feel like the line is moving up my foot. It resemblesa varicose vein. Thank you for your diagnosis. Any holistic/natural treatments would be greatly appreciated.
This healed down to a 2cm x 2cm wound within 1-2 months and took over 1 year for the rest to heal shut. She had varicose vein ablation in both legs to eliminate varicose veins and to reduce edema. The edema in her left leg is almost gone. The edema in her right leg continues to be a problem, but is far less severe than prior to the vein ablation. She has had 3 femur repair surgeries in 2007/2008 to her left leg (femur broke, rod broke, femur broke above the 2nd rod).
It causes dilation of the veins in the leg due to increased pressure resulting in swelling and pain of ankle and feet. This is more common in overweight people, with prolonged standing and with smoking. The other causes for pain and swelling are injury, ankle joint disorders, metabolic disorders and cardiovascular disorders. I would suggest you consult a primary care physician for proper evaluation. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
If i sit up after laying down, you can actually see the veins engorging one after the other in my left arm, filling up with blood, by the time i'm standing the veins on each side of my ankle have engorged. With varicose veins heat will tend to increase vein distention and lead to more pooling of blood so that makes sense why heat makes this even more unpleasant but I dont have varicose veins in my arms, or visible ones any where, which if this was varicose you'd expect to find some evidence.
The most common causes of edema only in one foot are varicose veins and thrombophlebitis (inflammation of the veins) of the deep veins of the legs. These conditions can cause improper pumping of the blood by the veins and venous stasis. Hence when you walk the circulation is more and hence more pooling. This can be diagnosed by color dopplar or an angiogram. Do consult a vascular surgeon for this. Hope this helps. Do let me know if there is any thing else and keep me posted. Take care!

MRI on foot gave normal result but it cannot conclude that problem may occur in small capillaries on foot. No varicose veins 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!
