Okay so the other night my leg started throbbing :( and it hurts to move my ankle and bend my leg. It hurts to stand or straighten.. I did some looking online and I'm pretty sure I have a varicose vein :( I don't know what to do.. Should I go to an urgent care or ER or hold it off tilmy appointment Monday? What can I do to relieve the pain? Have anyone had one before? Is this a varicose vein? Or you think something else..? Help!
Hello and sorry for the late reply. The most probable cause is varicose veins. 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. Eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly. Standing for a long time can also cause these symptoms. Take rest and elevate your legs while resting. Try to follow a low salt diet as this may reduce the swelling.
Stasis dermatitis can occur when fluid accumulates in the tissues just beneath your skin. Varicose veins and other chronic conditions in your legs can cause the fluid buildup. Stasis dermatitis is often a chronic condition. Symptoms may be minimized if the underlying condition and edema can be controlled. Oral antibiotics are useful when cellulitis is present; topical antibiotics are useless and often cause contact dermatitis. ref:http://www.internationaleczema-psoriasisfoundation.
Wearing compression stockings is often the first approach to try before moving on to other treatments for varicose veins. Compression stockings are worn all day. They steadily squeeze your legs, helping veins and leg muscles move blood more efficiently. The amount of compression varies by type and brand. If this does not help then depending on what is available in your area, you may have choices between laser treatment, radiofrequency treatment, or sclerotherapy.
Hi for the past 3 months Ive been suffering left swollen ankle no pain. My stomach hurt really bad i feel disy. I'm not pregnant should i worry?
The thing that makes it worse in I have suffered with varicose veins 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.
There are many things that could cause feet swelling (edema), like kidney, liver or heart problems. Varicose veins, thrombophlebitis (inflammation of the veins), lymphedema or too much salt could be problems, too. Or she could just be standing/sitting too much. She should try elevating her feet above her heart (the best would be lying on a couch or recliner with her feet on the back) for at least 20-30 minutes every night.
There can be some local causes also like varicose veins 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.

The vascular surgeon seems to be looking just to do anything I will pay for, but I don't want to go through a procedure to find out that this is not the underlying cause, but just another symptom. So, to put my mind at ease, could a few spider / varicose veins really cause such swelling and pain, and the initial all over joint-stiffness that I faced for that 5 days at the beginning? Any thoughts from somebody that might have experienced this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Stasis eczema appears as rough reddish, purplish, swollen, itchy skin on lower legs in persons with varicose veins, vein thrombosis or other vessel related disorders. It can also be possible that you have urticaria or hives. It is frequently caused by allergic reactions. The allergen can be in the environment, food or even insect bite can cause hives. Get it evaluated by a dermatologist.Only an external examination can confirm the cause. Do write to me again. Take care and best regards!
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!!
Hi, I have been experiencing calf and ankle burning/pain and I did end up at the ER because I was also having shortness of breath. Anyway they did find a superficial blood clot and vericose veins when they did the scan and thank God it wasn't a DVT. The shortness of breath they said was due to my asthma. It is just frustrating now because part of me thinks its the MS but the cardiovascular doctor thinks this caused from the veins. Has anyone else had these type of symptoms?

What is your age? Usually, varicose veins and telangiectasia (spider veins) are normal veins that have dilated under the influence of increased venous pressure. They are the visible surface manifestation of an underlying syndrome of venous insufficiency. Venous insufficiency syndromes allow venous blood to escape from its normal flow path and flow in a retrograde direction down into an already congested leg.

The pain increases when sitting or standing too long. I don't have any visible varicose veins and have no history of that.
