Avatar f tn They may be painful and can make your legs feel heavy and achy. The skin around the varicose veins may itch, throb or feel like it’s burning. When clots form in veins near the surface of the body, swelling and redness appear along the affected area of the vein. You may consult a doctor and get your doubts clarified. Don’t cross your legs or ankles while sitting. Avoid sitting or standing for long periods at a stretch. Sleeping on left side, wearing compression stockings may be helpful.
Avatar f tn Varicose veins are painful, I would mention it to your doc as they will be able to tell the difference between them and blood clots, I'm nlt sure that blood clots are usually visible, but you are def better to get them checked out. There are treatments for varicose veins in injection form which really hell, but I'm not sure if that could be done while you are pregmant. Your doc will be able to advise best.
Avatar f tn s I developed road maps on my legs of varicose and reticular veins. I ended up having a part of a varicose vein removed in March at least the bulging part. In my second pregnancy I developed a varicose vein on my labia which has since gone away but I am pretty sure that appears and gets worse with additional pregnancies. My biggest fear is death (pulmonary embolism) and not being here for my girls. Otherwise I am 110% ready for another baby.
10404685 tn?1418830427 Yep. Gotta love the extra weight of baby and pressure on the veins! I have varicose veins in my legs and my vagina. It's really unattravtive and is constantly swollen unless I'm lying down. And of course comes the pain and heaviness too. Ugh. I'm just glad I don't have them around my butt hole.
Avatar n tn Well I have pitting edema in my legs and a varicose in one, lots of spider veins..I have some major swelling and itching that's mostly at night...when I walk you can see the water move in my legs..the doc has given me water pills,and seems to do no good..I also get numb fingers,but I don't know if the two go hand in hand..I'm 28 years old...5'1 and 184 lbs I would love to walk and work out but my legs just don't have the strength..Please help..Thank You..
Avatar f tn I have a blood clot disorder. You can get tested for disorders simple blood test. Second, blood clots hurt bad not just when.you move but..also staying stil. Check with your doctor because clots are.very dangerous. I don't think.
Avatar f tn If you are doubtful discuss it with your doctor. X-rays to show veins (venography) in the legs and Doppler ultrasound may be helpful. Do keep me posted. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar m tn t think you have varicose veins, because varicose veins are always there, not just when you stand up. And they are blue. I think it is more serious. You might have something else...like some kind of POOLING OF BLOOD in the veins. But I don't know what causes it. Tell your doctor and let him see the photo also.
Avatar m tn Take sociable garlic and vitamin E capsules to improve circulation and vitamin C and B-complex vitamins to strengthen your blood vessels, Massage your legs with upward strokes, flushing your blood up to your heart. Use a massage oil made with 3 drops of lavender oil and 1 drop of peppermint oil in a coconut oil base (use unscented coconut oil), or put only the essential oils into a small spray bottle filled with water and spray directly on your legs. St.
Avatar f tn A simple way of describing it is to say that the arteries carry blood down the legs and the veins carry the blood back up the legs to the heart. There are valves in the veins that keep the blood from flowing backward and ff those valves fail, the blood can flow backwards in the veins, allowing the blood to pool in the feet/legs or even knees, depending on where the valves have failed.
Avatar f tn My Dr is sending me for an ultrasound on both legs to check for blood clot or other issues. IM 20 weeks and 3 days. Anyone else with this issue or been through the same?
11587059 tn?1427628263 The tingling fingers and feet sound like poor blood circulation which is also related to varicose veins I think. (Varicose veins are due to blood not pumping all the way through and backlogging/leaking back into the veins.) Bruised legs also circulatory, sounds like spider veins, which are related to varicose but don't stick out and they spread out more. Itching could be circulatory as well, or puppps or liver issues or allergies or sensitive skin.
Avatar n tn Note that when you have laser treatment it destroys the veins so the blood will go to other veins and the problem will most likely return.
Avatar m tn Severe venous insufficiency is pooling of blood in the veins that slows the return of blood to the heart. This condition can cause blood clots and severe infections. Blood clots can be very dangerous because they can move from leg veins and travel to the lungs. Blood clots in the lungs are life-threatening because they can block the heart and lungs from functioning. An aneurysm of a leg vessel is a varicose. Blood returning to the heart from the heart, lungs, etc.
1580703 tn?1651904887 If you have varicose veins in your legs can you also have them in your head or lungs? what is the best treatment? laser, radio, surgery?
Avatar n tn If you already have varicose veins you may have some doubts about taking birth control pills. If your varicose veins are mild and are not a symptom of a more serious condition, your doctor may agree to prescribe a low-dose estrogen pill. In this case it's up to you to decide what your priorities are. You may feel that the advantages of taking the pill outweigh the risk of varicose veins. That said I doubt if taking the pill would stop the problem! Ask the doctor for his/her opinion.
Avatar n tn I've been on the Nuva Ring for almost two and a half years. My whole family is very fair-skinned, so I've always had very visible veins my whole life. However, it wasn't until I began the Ring that I noticed my first varicose veins on my right calf. I didn't see the connection at the time, but now it's two years later and the same leg is in so much pain almost regularly, and I'm almost positive it is because of the Ring.
Avatar f tn ve raised the head of my bed in an effort to ease the burning feet at night, and it has helped, but now I have visible blood clots in my ankle, the pain of which is eye watering, especially when I try to walk. A brief medical history: I was on Metaprolol (75mg daily) for about five years and in the past month have gone on to Plendil (felodipine) 5mg. My blood pressure has been much more stable since the change over and the burning sensation at night has ceased, BUT...
Avatar n tn This year in May I stopped taking the birth control pills and a couple months later I noticed on my legs bulging varicose veins. The onset seemed to be quite sudden. Could the fact that I stopped taking the birth control pills caused the sudden onset of the varicose veins?
Avatar f tn org/diseases-conditions/varicose-veins/symptoms-causes/syc-20350643. Basically, weak or damaged valves lead to varicose veins. Being obese is a risk factor and losing weight would likely help a multitude of things in your life. That's never easy but something that would be very beneficial to work on. Sitting for prolonged periods of time also contribute to varicose veins. You are a young man and this should be a priority for your health.
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 n tn The ONLY consistent thing I have observed about it is that when I wake up in the morning (after lying in bed all night) my legs are completely clear (except for some varicose veins, that is). This says to me there is a circulation issue.
Avatar f tn My legs ache all the time and my varicose veins have been hurting. Why are they hurting so early? Is this normal?
