Avatar n tn Hello and hope you are doing well. Varicose veins are caused by hormone changes, exposure to the sun, and injuries. Few predisposing factors for developing varicose veins are prolonged standing or sitting, chronic constipation, menstrual cycle, birth control pills/estrogen replacement therapy, obesity, sedentary lifestyle, pregnancy etc.It may not be possible to determine the exact cause of your symptoms without a detailed evaluation.
Avatar n tn Horse chestnut is the best-known natural treatment for varicose veins. It helps prevent swelling and strengthens capillary and vein walls. The usual dose is 300 mg a day. Side effects are pretty rare, but if you start feeling itchy or nauseous, taper back your dose. Nature’s Way has a widely available, quality product I generally recommend. Grape seed extract also supports the walls of blood vessels. Take 150 to 300 mg in divided doses over the course of a day.
Avatar f tn With my second pregnancy I got them as well as major swelling of the the legs and feet and high blood pressure. Everything turned out fine and my son was healthy.

Avatar m tn -I was squinting under eye muscles almost all the time as a attempt to cover up spider veins, and worked until the varicose veins came up a little while after i began to do that. -Used to be in front of a computer screen a extremely large proportion of the day from about 5th to 8th grade, and still quite a bit but not near as much. -Started lifting weights at about 16.

Kidney function tests should also be done. A duplex ultrasound of the vein will need to be carried out. You can gently massage the vein in upward direction, towards your shoulder, 2-3 times a day and see if it helps. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!

Avatar f tn I would stop all medications as soon as possible and if at all possible. If you blood pressure goes up after stopping you should start the Allegra again. This would also be a good indicator that the blood pressure is allergy related. Of course ask your doctor if it is all right to stop any medication. When the allergies pop up try to take some collagen. I would also recommend to stop eating all wheat, rye, and barley for one month to see if it helps.

Avatar n tn Hello to all, In the past when I read about the warning signs and risk factors for heart disease I used to breath a sigh of relief. While my father has high blood pressure controlled with meds there is no other history of heart disease in my family, no heart attacks, etc. My mother actually has low blood pressure. I'm young, 26, only about 5 lbs overweight, excercise 3-5 times a week, watch what I eat, don't smoke. I do take oral contraceptives. No past history of health problems at all.
Avatar n tn It is actually very important to know the pattern of the rise of the blood pressure, for instance does it get very high only at night, or is it high all the time, and additionally, is it the same in both arms? I hope that this information gives you something at least to ponder if not help you to better understand the evaluation by the physician. Good Luck and feel free to enter more questions regarding the work-up if you have any.

When the blood clots it is usually dark and sometimes black and has a jelly like consistency. Bleeding varies are highly dangerous and can cause shock and death. You should go to the nearest large hospital near where you live and tell them you have cirrhosis and portal hypertension.
Avatar n tn Before I began the physical therapy, the therapist took my vital signs and found my blood pressure was 130/90. I know that trauma and pain can trigger an increase in blood pressure so that did not concern me too much, but then the therapist took my pulse from various points: wrist, neck, and under my arms. He had difficulty finding my pulse under my arms and expressed concern about it. I am not sure what he is implying, since I obviously have a pulse.
Avatar n tn That and/or blood vessels rupturing because of high blood pressure during an erection. This would explain why the bleeding stops after the ejaculation: IMO, the blood in the urine is only residual blood (mixed with semen) that got pushed into the bladder during ejaculation. The erection goes down, the skin goes loose and blood pressure goes down. The cut or blood vessel sort of semi-heals itself until the next erection/ejaculation which opens the cut again.
Avatar f tn I am not a good patient and have been most fortunate in my life not to have to take anything at all other than multi vit and E.

Avatar m tn Hi and welcome, Assuming you've had blood, cardio and other tests etc to rule out any other causes eg diabetes, varicose veins, blood clots, lupus, heart related conditions etc etc etc before looking at neurological causation's, from my understanding people with peripheral neuropathy typically describe their pain as a burning sensation, and the most common neurological related causes of a bilateral burning that i'm aware of in both lower limbs are structural spinal issues, eg degenerative disc,

Avatar f tn Hello, Your symptoms are typically due to varicose veins. Varicose veins are veins that have become enlarged and twisted.They are common in the superficial veins of the legs, which are subject to high pressure when standing. Symptoms include pain in the legs, discoloration near the affected veins,redness, dryness, and itchiness of areas of skin - termed stasis dermatitis and restless leg syndrome.Traetment may be conservative(with medicines) and interventional(surgical or non surgical).
Avatar f tn Hello, The most common local conditions that cause edema are varicose veins and thrombophlebitis (inflammation of the veins) of the deep veins of the legs. These conditions can cause inadequate pumping of the blood by the veins (venous insufficiency). You need to get your cardiac status also checked as mentioned earlier. You should indulge in moderate exercises like walking, avoid prolonged standing and avoid sitting with the feet dependent.Decrease salt intake and drink plenty of water.
