Dr. David Brouwer answered:

Are varacose veins that hurt dangeruos?

Painful veins

Veins
Painful superficial veins in the legs can represent phlebitis. Usually treatment is straightforward and the condition is not dangerous. However, if the painful vein is actually a 'deep' vein, then it could represent deep venous thrombosis, and that can be dangerous if not treated because the vein clot can embolize up to the lungs. See your physician for an exam to determine what vein problem it is

Dr. John Landi answered:

Has anyone developed vericose veins while using an iud?

Doesn't matter.

Img_1081
Varicose veins are due to malfunctioning (refluxing) valves of usually the saphenous system of veins. An IUD has nothing to do with causing valves to reflux. More common causes would be hereditary and prior pregnancies. You should see a vein specialist.

Dr. John Landi answered:

Can excercise cause varicus vains?

Yes and no

Img_0364
Exercise is a double edged sword. High impact exercise such as jogging or running on a treadmill can cause constant jarring of the vein valves which could lead theoretically to incompetence of them. Other forms of exercise such as biking, swimming and elliptical is good for the veins by increasing the venous return and muscle contractions without injuring the valves. See a vein specialist.

No.

Keep an eye on it. It should go down after pregnancy. If it doesn't, see a vein specialist or phlebologist. Phlebology.org for referrals.

Dr. Ted King answered:

What are vericose veins and its treatment?

VV and treatment

Varicose_veins
Varicose veins are usually due to heredity and are large bulging veins that occur because broken vein valves cause venous hypertension and enlargement. Treatment can be endovenous thermal ablation (laser or RF), ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy (vein injections with chemical), or surgery. You would need to see a vein specialist to be properly evaluated and treated.

Dr. Ted King answered:

How to massage the varicous viens?

Not too vigorously

Massage
If you have a hot, red, tender, swollen vein that would be suggestive that you have a superficial venous thrombosis, massaging it could be dangerous. Gentle upward pressure (not too vigorous) going from your foot to your hips, while you are lying down or have your feet slightly elevated, is likely to be most helpful. If your varicose veins hurt that much, it is time to see a vein specialist.

Maybe

It is hard to know what you are describing, but there can be varicocele veins that can enlarge in that region. You need to have a physical examination with your doctor.
