Pain In Leg Veins Visible
Those signs and symptoms by themselves are fairly nonspecific. Even when when they occur together they do not point to a single diagnosis.
If your pmd cannot treat this I would suggest that you be seen by an orthopedic foot and ankle surgeon. One in your area can be found at www. Aofas. Org. ...Read more
Would aspirin help or worsen deep vein thrombosis? Worried about possible blood clot from pain in leg and going to dr tomorrow.
Neither: Aspirin doesn't cause blood clots. However, it is inadequate treatment for a dvt. ...Read more
Venous insufficinecy: Visible veins on the legs are usually the result of venous insufficiency. The insufficiency may be in the skin [resulting tiny spider veins], or below the surface of the skin [ causing tiny and varicose veins] or in deep veins. It is best to have this evaluated by a vein specialist, often with aid of an ultrasound to see how best to treat. Weight loss or fat loss also makes veins more visible. ...Read more
Close leaking valves: Varicose veins are a result of malfunctioning valves usually in the saphenous system. The first step in treatment would be to obtain a venous reflux ultrasound to make the diagnosis and help plan treatment which could be laser or radiofreqency closure of the valves usually with microphlebectomies and possible sclerotherapy or ultrasound directed sclerotherapy. You should see a vein specialist. ...Read more
Probably.: Veins can enlarge and shrink for many reasons most commonly levels of hydration, genetics, aging, sun exposure, temperature changes and even skin color being more prominent in fair skinned people. In anorexia you loose body fat and because you are so thin, the veins become more prominent and easily seen since they are not covered by fatty tissue. ...Read more
Veins are common.: Both varicose and spider veins are very common and there are reports that 30 to 40 percent of the population may have some form of vein problems. There are varying degrees of vein issues from minor spider veins to extensive varicose veins, venous ulcers and even clots. See a vein specialist for a venous evaluation. ...Read more
It's doubtful: Anything will have a significant impact on the size of varicose veins. Pycnogenol has some weak evidence that it may increase the strength and elasticity of varicose veins and it, along with other herbs/supplements may slightly improve symptoms. But, no supplement has ever been convincingly demonstrated to make varicose veins shrink. See a vein specialist if you want to eliminate them. ...Read more
Maybe: If you can feel it with your hands it is likely arterial blood. Should have this evaluated. ...Read more
Not advised: Would wait at least a few weeks if possible, especially if larger varicose veins were treated. Although the risk of blood clots is low after sclerotherapy, there is still a small risk of this and you don't want to take any chances. When u do fly, make sure to wear your compression stockings, walk in the aisle during the flight, & do some calf raise exercises during longer flights. ...Read more
Should be safe.: Blood drawing is usually done from hand and arm veins because it is technically easier and more accessible. There are occasions when blood is drawn from both superficial or deep leg veins but these carry a higher risk of potential complications especially phlebitis (superficial or deep). As a precaution, blood is only drawn from the leg veins if no hand veins are available. ...Read more
I had an ultrasound showing only reflux of the leg veins, both legs. I wear compression with little relief. Is there any hope for my condition?
Venous Reflux: Malfunctioning of the valves in the venous system can lead to reflux (blood going backwards). This can lead to increased venous pressure and then symptoms of aching, cramping, swelling and pain as well as varicose veins. If support hose does not help then you may need to consider a venous closure procedure. See a vein specialist for a full venous evaluation. ...Read more
My brother has blocked carotid arteries and leg veins. Can physicians operate on both at the same time?
Not a good idea: Carotid occlusive disease and it's corresponding operation are very serious issues that should not be combined with surgery for varicose veins. Both have a great deal of importance but the more important and serious of the two should be addressed first-carotid endarterectomy. The varicose vein surgery can be done anytime thereafter. ...Read more
Yes - w/o treatment:
Dvt can break free from your deep veins, travel through your bloodstream, and lodge in your lungs. This clot can block blood flow in your lungs, which can strain your heart and lungs. This pulmonary embolism is a medical emergency. Dvt can also lead to chronic vein problems and swelling
treatment with blood thinners is very effective in reducing risk. Compression stocking also recommended. ...Read more
Pressure neuropathy: Most likely you are putting pressure on a nerve, this is similiar to when you bump your elbow (funny bone) and you feel that strange electrical sensation. If you sit long enough in that position when you go to stand up your foot will be numb and then you will feel pins and needles..... ...Read more

An MRI will show if the piriformis is the source of pain or whether its something else. ...Read more
