Varicose veins knee injuries

Common Questions and Answers about Varicose veins knee injuries


Avatar n tn During recovery, the large vessels below my right knee doubled in size compared to those in my left. Blotchy bruising starts mid-shin and becomes more uniform around my ankle. Varicose veins run from my ankle along my foot. My right calf and ankle are noticeably larger than my left, though how much of this can be attributed to muscle growth or edema I'm not sure.
487070 tn?1313669552 Hey Carolyn! Pin behind the knee is unlikely to be due to varicose veins and is more likely to be due to knee related issues. Without a physical examination and probably a few tests, it would be difficult to pint out the cause in your case. Possibilities include infections/ inflammations, nerve impingement/ pressure, tendon/ ligamental tears, meniscal injuries, fractures, patellar dislocation, bursitis, tendonitis etc.
Avatar n tn The archillies tendon joins the heel and the large muscle in the back of the lower leg. It is sounds like the tendon is retracting, which would give you the pain you have. Try icing it. Wrap a bag of veggies (you will not use them again)in a damp cloth. Rest your ankle on the bag. It will mold itself around the ankle and cool the tendon. The icy package should not touch the skin. Ice this way for about 15 minutes. Rest the ankle for 30 minutes while the veggie re-freeze.
Avatar m tn grade/ severity), fibromyalgia, some heart condition (? diagnosis), varicose veins and suffers from back/ knee/ shoulder/ elbow pain. None of the conditions described except the possible heart condition could be life threatening. There could be a few other cause of the symptoms described such as postural issues, neuro-muscular causes such as muscle sprain, nerve impingement, injuries to muscles/ ligaments etc.
Avatar f tn yea, I had an explosion of those little purple veins around 3 years ago at the same time the red spots appeared. Since then also my blood test are not so great either. I mean lowish white cells (3.
Avatar f tn I am little scared but am embarrassed to tell doctor since she blew off my leg varicose veins as nothing. I know my legs are bad and now have to deal with horrible shin splints too. Could same thing be happening in my head from either a blocked vein or compressed vein.Most likely the internal carotid artery one? 3 days straight of this temple pain.
Avatar n tn I have not had any injuries, insect bites or infections. The first doctor I went to took x-rays which came back normal and ran a CBC which also came back completely normal. He told me I would just have to live with the swelling and wrote a Rx for Lasik PRN to help. The Lasik does help when I take it but as soon as I stop taking it the swelling comes right back. I've been told not to take it long term as it can effect important vitamin levels.
Avatar n tn I am 50+, male, british driver. Have problems with varicose veins in lower right leg (for which i take horse chestnut and butchers broom) also lower back problems - just recently started up again coinciding a bit with these warm feeling episodes. Not overweight or sedentary, fairly regular cyclist. Will return to osteopath and make a GP appointment to try and learn more. Very interesting to read of so many people with similar symptoms.
Avatar n tn WoW! I've had a warming sensation in my calf/foot area for months and after some research and medical help(my wife works in an ER and speaks with drs) I thing I have a solution to MY problem. I've noticed that the warming sensation comes and goes with the pain in my lower back. I was injured on the job several years but being an avid outdoors type, I still continue to exercise. Recently I've started golfing several times a week and have aggrivated the back injury.
Avatar n tn -I also have a very hard/stiff penis when flaccid (like but 2inches long) -I experience a burning sensation in my penis often in the veins. -I have varicose veins on my testicles. -my testicles are smaller than before. -I have gradually had a harder and harder time getting erections and they are not "full". When erect my penis is about 5.5 inches instead of 6.
Avatar n tn My first liver doc told me the more I knew the better off I'd be so I spend a lot of time doing independent research trying to figure these things out. Also weakening of the veins and capillaries in the extremities is pretty common with aging regardless of health.So for those of you that are older. Yup for you it may just be a part of the aging process.Never hurts to stick your hand in the docs face and go oi! For me avoiding planes and eating better seems to have worked mostly.
Avatar m tn Your only evidence diagnosed is the varicose veins. Have you visited a different urologist for a second opinion? You doctor must surely rule out it is not causing the pain. Pain from one side shifting to the other side is a typical symptom of CPSS and Myofascial pain. The pain will be unilateral in constant, however suddenly on a day it will shift from one side to the other side.
192055 tn?1263559137 Mega; I too have the varicose veins in the scrotum and the shaft of the penis. They seem to be very noticeable now. Plus, I now have two or three huge veins up the side of my shaft that I didn't have a year ago.
Avatar n tn 90% of the time I get the pain which is about 4 inches above my knee on the inside of the thigh at night and it is very painful and long lasting. During the day I have times when it feels like someone has driven a knife in me but it only lasts a few seconds. I have a spot where you can press and it hurts alot but otherwise it doesn't affect my daily life. I am very athletic and have not stopped doing anything but this is really affecting my sleep. If anyone learns anything, please post.
Avatar n tn 9-26-07 Approx. 9 weeks ago I had inguinal hernia repair on the left side. It took me around 4 weeks till I was somewhat pain free. Then came horrible testicle pain, I mean unbearable, and it still persists. I went back to the surgeon and he sent me to a uroligist. It was a week before I could get in to see him so I went to the ER. They took blood, urine, and an ultrasound. I was diagnosed with prostitis, fluid on my testicles and varicose viens & prescribed atibodies & pain meds.
Avatar n tn When flacid, my penis is smaller now. The skin feels different--less sensitive. I see veins where I couldn't see any before. When I walk around, it feels like I don't even have a penis anymore. It feels like nothing is there. As a result of this I have lost my girlfriend, my confidence in life, and I think I am losing my mind. Oral drugs don't help. I've been to urologists at an ivy leage teaching hospital. He basically said 'that's life' and showed me penis pumps.
Avatar n tn Pain in the artery can probably be relieved with 800mg of Vit E a day since it takes the pain out of my varicose veins--each day. Two 1000mg tabs of Vit C with each meal (Linus Paulings study) with help with inflamation urinary problems and aging. EDTA is a compably inexpensive way to clear the blood vessels throughout the body of plaque and heavy metals by tying them up and excreting them from the body. They claim it only takes a few weeks with the liquid and a few months with the oral pills.
298579 tn?1192250448 When I fell roller skating that last time at age 32 (which was the worst of the three injuries), I experienced my rectal opening relaxing (just like it does when I get my "butt cramp") along with excruciating tailbone pain. Anyway, just thought I'd share what I found today.
Avatar n tn But I was also taking a B6 supplement about 3 times a week (I really can't remember how much was in there, maybe 200mg, or 500mg) and I also took Horse Chesnut Root (to prevent varicose veins) and I have not been able to find out if that also has vitamin B in it or not but it sure does make my pain worse when I take it, so I suspect that it does. In addition to my awful awful neuropathy, I had constant fatigue, and still have some.
