Neuropathy?: It's is also common to have a peripheral neuropathy with diabetic foot ulcers. This could be the cause of your pain and there are neuropathy pain medications that help. Another more limb threatening cause could be from "rest pain". This means your limb isn't getting enough blood supply. A vascular surgeon could help determine its cause.

Typically CEA: I am a vascular surgeon and preform both procedures. Typically a carotid endarterectomy is preferred over carotid stenting unless you have had a previous carotid endarectomy, radiation therapy to the neck for cancer, a high burfication of the internal carotid artery making the surgery difficult or the patients overall health status making them to unhealthy to undergo an operation.

No: Being up all day on your feet, even if you are moving can lead to cvi. Walking will help. Also compression stockings may help with the progression of venous insufficiency. Unfortunately a big part will also be from genetic inheritance.
