Varicose veins and high blood pressure

Common Questions and Answers about Varicose veins and high blood pressure


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 This pregnancy i have developed some varicose veins. I have one that is protruding on my left inner calf and is right on top of bad spider vein. It is tender to the touch and i can feel a little discomfort walking up and down stairs. Is this normal or could it actually be a blood clot? It is not warm to the touch just painful and tender.
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.
Avatar n tn I have varicocele and my blood pressure seems a little high. I also have a huge bulging vein on my penis. can Flomax help with this?
155701 tn?1230047101 Otherwise, it can be due to peripheral vascular disease, faulty deep veins’ valves and high blood pressure as the cause would need to be ruled out. 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 What causes varicose veins ?and what is the difference between spider veins and the bigger ones ?
Avatar m tn Without it, too much pressure can build up in your abdomen, which may slow blood return from your legs and worsen those varicose veins. P.S. the bilberry used in the research was by GNC.
Avatar f tn Seems like we share a few common things besides varicose veins. Only discovered I was preg at 14 weeks and am 27 weeks now and wld really want vbac but read somewhere saying they usually start inside so was also worried about obstruction of baby.
Avatar f tn If you have multiple varicose veins, then the cause could be prolonged standing, faulty valves, family history, blood pressure and cholesterol problems, sedentary life style, congenital malformation of veins, and obesity. If any of the causes which can be controlled are detected then taking care of those causes can reduce the progression of varicose veins. A duplex ultrasound of the vein will need to be carried out.
Avatar f tn Sclerotherapy is another common treatment for both spider veins and varicose veins. In this procedure with the help of a needle a liquid chemical is injected into the vein. This causes swelling in vein and collapsing .This stops the flow of blood, and the vein turns into scar tissue. This procedure can be done without general anesthesia and does not lead to inference in the daily activities. Laser techniques can help in curing small varicose veins. Discuss these possibilities with your doctor.
Avatar m tn t functioning quite as well this condition occurs. Varicoceles are dilated blood vessels (varicose veins) in the scrotum. Blood from the testicle drains into a collection of tiny veins. A minimally invasive radiological procedure called embolization can, in most cases, correct the problem. Correcting varicose veins in scrotum boosts sperm count, motility. Go here : You can do exercises but not weights.
Avatar m tn Basically Varicose veins are weakened veins caused by genetic weakness, constipation, pregnancy and obesity. Our veins have valves, but in varicosed veins the valves are weak and do not prevent the backflow of blood. Therefore the blood pools in the lower legs. This causes inadequate circulation and nourishment to the tissues of the lower legs. If not corrected, this can lead to breakdown of the skin and varicose ulcers which are difficult to heal.
1032669 tn?1252456404 I called my aunt who is an OB Nurse practitioner and she said that it is a vaginal varicose vein that is common with pregnancy (I I never has this before and no varicose veins any where else)..................anyone else have/had this. I feel deformed; like I am not self conscious enough while pregnant I get this!!!! Anyone??????
Avatar f tn I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but I'm new here and I can't find a page that fits what I'm asking better. Recently, I've noticed that a lot of the veins on my feet are popping out. I am a 17 year old female, a little overweight, with no health issues to date (not even high blood pressure.) I'm not sure what this is, and I'm really starting to freak out.
1907180 tn?1329450777 I am not sure if I have varicose veins or not. I am around 50 lbs overweight and 6 1/2 weeks pregnant. My legs are aching really bad from the knees to my ankles. I do have some small prominent blue bulging veins near the surface, but they have been there for years and never hurt. Can a person have them so deep that you can't see it? I fell last week and have some very deep and large contusions on the front of my right leg. My calves seem to be slightly swollen, but my ankles are normal.

Avatar f tn t know how to explain it but on the back of my right calf I ended up get something looking like a small bunch of grapes due to the veins. And believe me now my veins r so much visible and feel really bumpy and a lot painful. I can't stand for a long periods of time and can't even do do my house chores. Ended up having a cleaner and also can't live without my compressions they r a life saver.
Avatar f tn ve been getting sharp pains in my cervix and today the pressure feels like the veins of my girl parts want to explode. Not sure this is an accurate description but the pelvic belt doesn't help. The baby isn't measuring big or anything but it is my 3rd baby. Does anyone else have this ridiculous pain? I have an appt. with a physical medicine doctor but they couldn't get me in until the 30th.
1255761 tn?1294681089 If the vessel loses the ability to properly function some blood volume and pressures may cause varicose veins. If the blood return to the heart is severely impeded, that can increase the blood voume and increased work for the heart.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn I'm 35 weeks pregnant and just noticed bulging veins on my vagina anybody else having that???
