I have spider veins on both legs and have severe knee and leg pain, also the veins swell up and causes it to be hard to sit, stand, and walk.

You should start with a full venous evaluation by a vein specialist including a venous reflux ultrasound. Depending on this, you may also need to have other causes of your symptoms evaluated such as orthopedic and neurologic. ...Read more

A doctor gave me trazodone for leg pain he says my blood vessels are constricted and gave me trazodone what should I take?

A doctor gave me trazodone for leg pain he says my blood vessels are constricted and gave me trazodone what should I take?

Talk to the doctor: Please make sure it was given for leg pain with blood vessel constriction. It could be that he gave it to you for your concurrent depression and/or insomnia. But it's also possible that he meant to write a prescription for another medication such as trental, (pentoxifylline) but may have been mistaken somehow for trazodone. Please check with the doctor who gave you the prescription. ...Read more

Acute venu embolism and thrombosis of deep vessels of lower extremity alrady had stints in legs and 2 venaava filters now having severe leg pain?

Recurrent DVT: It sounds like you were taken off lifelong blood thinner medication. You should be back on it and wearing 30-40 mmhg compression stockings daily. You do not say if the filters were both removed or how long the present condition exists. Usually, interventional corrections are sucessful if within a 2 week period of dvt. See your vascular spacialist immediately as this is very serious. ...Read more

Is revascularisationand an option for small vessel disease, regarding leg amputation? What questions should I ask her doctor?

Is revascularisationand an option for small vessel disease, regarding leg amputation? What questions should I ask her doctor?

Some times: If revasculizing leads to a higher flow rate and increased pressure then small blood vessels may open up and deliver more oxygen to the tissues. But if the small vessels are clogged as we see with diabetes ( which effect small and large vessels) then it may not help. Hopefully there are only small isolated areas of blockage and the body will compensate with making new collateral vessels. ...Read more

I have polycythemia but im suffering from leg pain: can my blood disorder be the cause of my leg pain?

Yes: Polycythemia can caused sluggish blood flow in your blood vessels.

Veins in right leg swell and then other times really small. Had 3 stents in lad. Also have some type of autonomic disfunction. Bp dropping. Causes?

Veins in right leg swell and then other times really small. Had 3 stents in lad. Also have some type of autonomic disfunction. Bp dropping. Causes?

Normal veins: Veins are thin walled, low pressure structures that fill and become engorged or empty and lie flat depending on gravity and position with state of hydration also contributing. When you sit with your legs down, they'll swell. When you sit or lie and elevate them, they'll empty. Arterial disease (as in stenting of your lad) has nothing to do with your venous system. ...Read more
