Varicose veins and the heart

Common Questions and Answers about Varicose veins and the heart


9062499 tn?1426961562 I have some on my thigh and I've been getting pains for 6 wks and I'm only going on 10. I didn't think about varicose veins being the reason for the pain until I just read this!!!!!
Avatar m 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. Grape seed extract also supports the walls of blood vessels. Take 150 to 300 mg in divided doses over the course of a day. I like the Activin product.
Avatar m tn Flex your feet up and down and circle your ankles to the left and to the right twice a day. To help varicose veins, make sure you're getting enough of the following: Calcium-rich foods, since varicose veins are aggravated by a calcium deficiency Pineapple, to reduce swelling and inflammation. Berries such as raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, and cherries, as they contain a pigment that strengthens the walls of the veins Foods high in fiber Plenty of water, to keep your bowels moving.

Avatar f tn I completely forgot about them aonce they dont hurt until the other day i saw blood on the corner of my pantyliner and just about had a heart attack until i saw it was just one of the vv that popped. Gosh that was scary!
Avatar f tn I cannot ascribe the above improvements to anything other than my additions to our drinking water, It is possible that the BioSil was even more effective, in terms of the varicose veins, than the trace minerals. It is supposed to strengthen vessel walls. My feet are completely free of any sort of discoloration or blotching. There is no evidence whatsoever of varicosities. The skin is soft and smooth.
1504778 tn?1321398245 Veines bring the blood throughout your body and arteries bring the blood back to your heart. And the veines that appear at the surface, which look horible and are called vericose veins, they are actually superficial veins, and you have more deeper veins which are bigger which you can depend on!!
1278876 tn?1304911919 So I'm 17w3d and about two weeks ago i noticed i have some varicose veins on my right ankle, and right thigh along with a few on my left calf. I know they say to stay off your feet to help with avoiding getting them but with a 20 month old thats nearly impossible! I try to put my legs up whenever I'm sitting and try not to go out and do things over a couple hours. Do any of you have suggestions about what else would help?
Avatar m tn 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... I have been to the doctor and taken 5+ blood tests of all sorts, had my heart tested, urine tested, had an abdominal ultrasound, and he found nothing. We've tried nerve medications (lyrica) and had no success.
Avatar m tn My mother suffers from varicose veins and over the recent years my veins have become more prominent. I have fairly thick skin, don't bruise easily and a stocky build, but yet veins in my arms and mainly legs seem to appear to stick out. When sat down it is hardly noticeably but after standing up for long periods of times they show, (the hotter it is the more they show) Also it is on both legs, do I need to seek advice from a doctor?
Avatar f tn This happens whether I’m on my feet for a while, or whether I’m sitting down. My mother always had varicose veins and even had to get one out. So maybe it’s hereditary. I tried to look for a website to help deal with them but all I find are nonsense advertisements. Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome?
Avatar m tn 4) Rule out heart problems. If still , you are thinking in terms of varicose veins, then a Doppler scan would be helpful. Regards..
Avatar f tn If they are still there once you have your baby, talk to the doctor. Varicose veins can be taken care of by a medical procedure, and if they hurt, there is all the more reason to do so.

Avatar n tn My doctor has removed and 'switch-off' the veins from the kidney to the scrotum just two-weeks back. I can feel that the heat from the scrotum is much less, but the volume of veins in the scrotum still remains the same. The key-hole surgery was on removing the veins nearer to the kidney, so I don't expect the veins at scrotum to reduce. Currently, I do feel that the left-testicle is sensitive to touch though.
Avatar m tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! The only way to confirm whether you have varicose veins or not is go for a duplex ultrasound or a color dopplar. You need to consult a vascular specialist for this. Deficiency of Vitamin B12, folic acid, or Vit K could be the cause of bruise along with low platelets, but this has probably been lood into in your case. They could also be fragile spider veins. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar f tn It started with me noticing the veins on my palms and fingers appearing very blue sometimes (almost like they've been drawn with blue pen) and has progressed from my hand and feet up my legs and arms and I also see veins on my neck and around my eyes. This comes and goes - there doesn't seem to be a pattern though I've noticed it generally happens more in the evening and doesn't seem linked to temperature.
Avatar f tn Other possibility is of varicose veins. Varicose veins are veins that have become enlarged and twisted.They are common in the superficial veins of the legs but can be present in arms also. Confirmatory tests are Doppler ultrasound and angiogram. I sincerely advise you to get it confirmed from a vascular surgeon. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep us posted if you have any additional queries. Kind regards.
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 m tn So, when your hands are down, the blood easily flows downward through your arteries into your arterioles and capillaries and then starts the return to your heart through your veins to be reoxygenated via the lungs, then pumped back out of your heart to your arterial system once again.
Avatar n tn I felt a thud in my heart and then the veins on my hands, forearms and calf area of my legs enlarged. The arms only drain to normal and are not visable when I raise my arms vertically. When I then lower my arms again the veins pop out again and are unsightly. I had never had this happen before. It is when at rest that it is worse. I have checked about fibromyalgia that I have had for years, but never had this vein issue until the 21st of May of this year.
Avatar f tn In the legs, valves that are designed to only allow blood to flow towards the heart go bad and let blood rush towards the feet in the superficial veins. This increases the pressure and causes them to ilate and become tortuous. The increased pressure also causes fluid to flood out of the capillaries resulting in swelling.
Avatar n tn I never rub them as I'm afraid they will get a clot. I have varicose and spider veins in my legs but the veins that do this are in my hands, arms, head, etc and are not varicose or spider. Also sometimes my legs will hurt and ache so bad. Any information you can give me will be greatly appreciated! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dear Myrtle: None of the symptoms you describe sounds like a blood clot.
435652 tn?1204315393 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!!
Avatar n tn Deep vein thrombosis usually present with pain and swelling, warmth over the affected area, and changes in the skin color, such as turning pale, red or blue. While symptoms of varicose veins include fullness, heaviness, aching, and sometimes pain in the legs; visible, enlarged veins; mild swelling of ankles; brown discoloration and even skin ulcers near the ankle. With diabetes, monitoring of blood glucose to ensure normal levels is highly recommended.
Avatar m tn I stopped taking Lisinopril over two weeks ago after taking it for 4 years because it was keeping my resting pulse at 100 and it started to increase to 130 and the doctor's finally caught it. I am exercising and eating right as best I can now, but now I can see the veins in my arms and legs. MY blood pressure fluctuates during the day but my pulse pressure says between 50-60. I am a 24 year old over weight male 190 5"5' who just started exercising and walking.
Avatar m tn An aneurysm of a leg vessel is a varicose. Blood returning to the heart from the heart, lungs, etc. is more complex and doesn't depend on individual veins to move blood against gravity, etc. The factors involved are the determinants of diastolic function. Myocardial relaxation is an active process influencing the isovolumic relaxation phase and part of the early filling phase.
Avatar m tn I also noticed minor discomfort and aching on the right side of my penis. The aches and discomfort have gone away but the veins are still there and prominent. I'm wondering if this is inflammation? I have a always had 1 varicose vein on my left side of my penis but the 2 other ones seem new and coily which I have never noticed before. I can still have sex and get an erection but I'm wondering if continuing sexual activity is a bad thing?
Avatar f tn I did see a doctor he sent me to a neurologist who was looking for spinal stenosis for years and took MRI's, and now I realize that it is something wrong with my veins...but my doctor will not look at my legs or veins...because he is mad at me for filing a complaint against him for not diagnosing my legs. They are heavy and swollen with burning pain. So I do not know what to do?
