If I stand for too long the numbness turns to cold/burning tingling sensation just on oustide of left thigh, then goes into upper leg. Now I am also developing varicose veins in that same leg. I have put on about 25 pounds and was wondering if it's that extra weight causing the problems. This leg also seems slightly swollen because of the varicose veins. Could you please help me?
If this doesn't work, you may wish to see your health care provider and get checked out for varicose veins or get an xray to rule out congestive heart failure.
I just want to make sure I'm not dying, or perhaps this is varicose veins and it's normal for them to pop up and down at will. Any information on my creepy veins would be greatly appreciated. 8) Thanks!!

I'm 37 years old and have a history of varicose veins but am generally healthy. For weeks I've been experiencing a dull pain on the underside of my left knee and thought for sure I was just getting a varicose vein (I have one on my right leg). A few nights ago I had an excruciating leg cramp in my left leg that lasted about 30 minutes and left my leg feeling like it have a charlie horse for days later.

I too have the same problem with my right upper thigh. Numbness and burning and itchy. It started out the size of a quarter just above my knee cap during my last pregnancy. Docs said it would go away after I delivered because most likely a nerve was being pressed on...Needless to say it did not go away, and has only been progressivley getting worse. It now starts just above the knee cap and covers almost the whole upper thigh in front...no numbness or anything on the back of my leg.

I am a 26 year old caucasian male with a family history on my mother's side of diabetes and varicose veins and on my father's side with heart disease. On both sides the males have a history of depression and suicide. With that said, I have had varicose veins in both my legs (most pronounced in left leg) for a few years now most likely from a combination of family history and being constantly on my feet at my previous job.
I do have varicose veins in that area on both legs and wondered if this could be related to that. It still feels the same this morning - will this go away or should I call my doctor? I also have something called iliotibial band syndrome on my left leg for which I'm supposed to start physical therapy for in a week. The pain associated with that radiates from my left hip down the outside of my left thigh and wraps around the front of my left knee.
From the information given I would say that you have suffered what is sometimes called a varicose veins,if you havn't suffered numbness or sensation.It would seem that you would be best with a referral to a doctor for further evaluation and long-term treatment.
I have gone to my PCP and have had no luck figuring out what is causing this. Went to the hospital four days ago because the numbness in my legs and the veins portruding was scaring me. The diagnosis was sciatica and swelling in the knees, with a Lyme disease test, but the doctor had no idea. Could these symptoms be linked somehow, and what kind of tests should I be doing so I don't have to play the guessing game?
Blockage of blood vessels in diabetes mellitus can lead to numbness, coldness and burning sensations. Varicose veins can also cause similar symptoms. Compression of sciatic nerve can lead to pain and burning through the thighs and legs. Schedule an appointment with a primary care physician and get yourself evaluated. I hope you find this information useful. Best luck and regards!
I thought I had a clot, and that is a sign. Do you have any pain in the bigger leg, or varicose veins that look different?
the physician needs to examine the legs, could be a circulation problem, any clot in leg veins due to chronic immobilization can make it difficult to move the legs and risk of thromboembolism. Rule out diabetes, varicose veins and any swelling in legs due to fluid retention in kidney and liver problems. My suggestion is to consult a physician soon and have him evaluate your husband. You are most welcome with any further speculations. Take care.
Your symptoms appear to be due to restless leg syndrome, which can be seen secondarily in pregnancy, varicose veins, diabetes obesity. This is seen in pregnant females during the last trimester. you need to consult a physician for detailed assessment, blood flow in the legs need to be checked since you have varicose veins and it is a risk factor for RLS. Try to get some good sleep, warm and cold baths. Medications like requip are prescribed if the diagnosis is confirmed. Hope this helps.
For oedema of legs you can keep your legs a little elevated. If you have varicose veins this can be treated easily. Take care!

Hi Thanks for writing to the forum! There is a possibility that these symptoms are due to varicose veins or due to deep vein thrombosis. A color Doppler will help reach a diagnosis. Other possibilities are diabetes and hypothyroidism. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please discuss this with your doctor and get yourself investigated accordingly. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
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!
deep vein thrombosis or congestive heart failure or due to varicose veins. The nerve to supply to great toe and ball of foot is through L4-S1, which originates from lower back. Any pathology involving your lower back can cause such pathology. Have you been evaluated for Diabetes? Keep me informed. Bye.
