Varicose veins in left leg

Common Questions and Answers about Varicose veins in left leg


Avatar f tn This is my first pregnancy, and I've developed a patch of varicose veins on the inside of my calf of my left leg. I've never had them before, and this is the only patch (so far). Will these go away after I give birth, or are they permanent?
542287 tn?1280613967 Hi, doc, i have pretty bad varicose veins, bulging bluish like in my left leg. How do you treat theseand is it usually successful. They do not look good and are at times painful. I think it is time for me to get this tended to! Does insurance companys cover this? Do they just see it as being cosmetic. kay. thank you doc for any input.
Avatar n tn Anybody else suffering from the varicose veins. I was just wondering if they will go away on there own after baby arrives. I am 27 weeks pregnant and my left leg has them all over. It is not attractive at all. Is there anything you can do for them?
Avatar f tn I have been experiencing severe varicose vein pain and problems in my left thigh. I have had problems for which I wear 20-30mmhG on my left leg below the knee. I am scheduled to fly from Oklahoma City to San Jose, Ca tomorrow afternoon/evening. I have a 2 hour, 35 minute flight from OKC to Las Vegas. I have about an hour and a half layover there with the remaining flight from Las Vegas to San Jose which is a 1 hour, 20 minute flight.
1014822 tn?1338651673 I noticed earlier this week I have developed varicose veins on the back of my left leg in the crease. I will be 28 weeks pregnant tomorrow. It seems since I found it my leg has been sore, achy and tired, especially when I walk. My sister is a nurse and I had her look at it and she said it looks fine but I am concerned about the pain. Has anyone had this happen? I have a dr's appt tomorrow so I hope he can put my mind at ease. I'm a worry wart....
Avatar f tn I have been trying 2 different kinds of homeopathics - I'm not sure which one works better but they do seem to help - Hamamelis complex and Red Vine (vitis vinifera fluid extract) I have them all down my left leg and really bad in the vulva like you :( really ***** - try to put your legs up a lot. let me know if you find anything else that works!
Avatar f tn Now that I know what I know, I think I have a lesion in my back that caused my left leg to swell, and my right leg to atrophy. I ended up with a lot of spider veins in my ankle and calf - they look terrible.
Avatar f tn As the uterus grows it puts pressure on the inferior vena cava which in turn increases pressure in the leg veins. 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.
Avatar n tn i always have pain only on the right side of my prostrate and the right leg and lower right side of my back and hip. the varicose veins are on the right side of my penis to and my right leg behind my nee. i am starting to wonder if my whole problem might be some kind of stricture some were in my pelvis on the right side. and im getting very worried about these varicose veins poping up on my leg does this make any sence to anyone reading this.
Avatar m tn Aside from the red color, there is also a varicose veins who is slowly grow on the birthmark affected leg, so I just thought that it is connected to my birthmark too, b/c why is it that there's no varicose veins on my right leg which doesn't have a birthmark, its swelling and aching. I wish that their will be a kindhearted one or a doctor who could help me. If there will be a trial medical surgery, then I would be the first to volunteer myself for that trial.
Avatar m tn Ive had increased varicose especially in left leg since a fusion surged L4-L5 4 yrs ago. Two weeks ago my blood pressure shot thru the roof a day after donating blood. Felt faint, nearly passed out. BP is staying down. When this happens my leg gets cold from knee down to foot. I notice more pulsing and fluttering on the front beside the the shin bone or front of calf muscle. The fluttering goes up and down my whole leg now.
Avatar m tn the week 3 symptoms have worsened and now I feel similar pains in my left leg. In addition, there is muscle quivering in my groins and my biceps. some discomfort under my armpits. I sometimes feel numbness in certain body areas as well. I am really confused as to what this can be as I can not match my symptoms against any common STDs. I have been under a high level of stress because of this encounter so is hypersensitivity to my body the cause?
Avatar f tn Since the birth of my son 5 yrs ago, I have suffered varicose veins in my leg. Not too severe, but they can cause bad pain, sometimes on a daily basis. 18 months ago I ran up the stairs and felt a sharp shooting pain in my calf. The area reddened and became swollen. After a trip to a&e I was told it was not DVT, but a ripped muscle. The following day the area bled under the skin and lasted for a month. I was told by another doctor is what a torn vein.
Avatar n tn I was told by a doctor that varicose veins in this region are common, and not to worry about it unless it begins to hurt. Recently, when I wear tighter pants (such as those required for my job), I have experienced slight pain in the vein, as well as more of a consistent aching pain down my left thigh, and even occasional sharp pains up and down the left leg. Sudden exertion, like jumping or running causes the upper area of my left leg, right around the varicose vein to ache slightly.
Avatar n tn I also have numerous HUGE spider veins. They are the ugliest part of all about my leg minus the bulging vein in my calf, but the surgeon is not worried about addressing them. If I were to have surgery, generally how long before I could begin to work out again?
542287 tn?1280613967 Hi ,I'am a 57 year old female with varicose veins. Especially on my left leg. I have had them for some time now. But in the past i put them in the back of my mind, as i have more important health issues to deal with. As i am getting my health problems in control, I am now thinking about my legs again, and would really like to get rid of these unsightly veins. They are painful at times and i have noticed a little swelling and of course the bulging bluish in color, it's awful.
Avatar n tn for 5 or 6 years i have had 2 small lumps in my upper inner calf area that bulge if i stand but disappear if i walk or take the weight off my left leg, they dont hurt, can be pressed in with no discomfort but they are bothering me mentallty. Theyre about the size of peanut...i have been to see my doctor who told me they were where a minor vein meets a major vein but surely this would happen all over the body?? was he just trying to pass me off??
Avatar m tn The next day I had a huge bruse. This happened agian on my left leg so I went to the doctors as I have a hole in my heart and thought it might have something to do with my circulation...the doctor siad I had vericus veins and as they have told most of you they are not supposed to hurt. WELL MINE DID. So I check to see if my blood was clotting and they siad it was fine and so was my circulation.
Avatar n tn I was on the soccer pitch just recently and noticed a real bruising pain in my left calf and so proceeded to examine the area. I noticed that a varicose vein had most likely burst. It looked like a bruise measuring around 3cm in diameter, dark blue and color with a slightly reddish tone. I quickly send myself to the hospital's emergency department and they tell me to go home and treat it like a normal bruise with elevation of the leg and ice.
Avatar m tn The leg vein issue the way you describe is that of varicose veins. Because you are experiencing pain in the calf muscle, you should make an urgent appointment to see your doctor to rule out deep vein thrombosis. The doctor will listen to the leg and can arrange to get your blood tested with regard to that - this is called a Doppler test. He will also be able to confirm whether it is varicose veins that you have and what can be done about them.
Avatar n tn I also have pain which comes and goes that feels like is either muscular (though I often wonder if you could feel pain in veins because I have both spider and varicose veins in my left leg). Now I am experiencing tingling in left fingers and slightly in left cheek. My bp also fluctuates from being very low (for me) 98/69 to 130/95, standing seems to cause it to rise significantly along with my heart rate which also raises about 15-20 pts upon just standing.
229857 tn?1319033507 What about varicose veins? Varicose veins are not dangerous, and they are NOT thrombophlebitis. Varicose veins are a problem with gravity and the weight of the baby on the drainage of superficial veins back up toward the heart. Varicose veins are mere engorgements of these structures and have nothing to do with clots in the deep veins of the legs. Although they can hurt, they don't present as the danger that deep blood clots are.
Avatar f tn Now, the last couple weeks I have been experiencing a throbbing pain in my left leg when I am lying down at night. It is extremely painful at times. I do have some varicose veins in both legs, though I'm not sure that's related as they are totally nonpainful. Now, could the leg and chest pain be related? And if so is it indicative of any kind of cardiovascular problem?
Avatar f tn I just turned 25, I started with the small veins on the top of my right leg, my doctor told me its because I walk on concrete all day, standing up, for work. I quit my job and in the past 5 months they've gotten worse. They appear on the top of my left thigh too, but maybe 2 that are very small. The right leg is the problem which is strange to me that they are so bad on just the one leg on the front and back just on my thigh.
Avatar f tn I have varicose veins and one leg was lase-rd, awaiting to have my left leg done i now have a sudden pain in the left side of knee when i bend it, feels like it is going burst, so i cannot bend my left knee now for the severe pain and worried it will burst. I am over weight as well, do you think this is the cause?
Avatar n tn heat sensation in left leg sometimes. strange had it last year in the winter months and disappeared until this past december. Had a physical and forgot to mention it.
Avatar f tn If I stand for too long the numbness turns to cold/burning tingling sensation just on oustide of left thigh, then goes into upper leg. Now I am also developing varicose veins in that same leg. I have put on about 25 pounds and was wondering if it's that extra weight causing the problems. This leg also seems slightly swollen because of the varicose veins. Could you please help me?
