The veins in my legs are sore. How do I make them feel better?

Treat: I feel that if you have symptoms that affect your life then I would recommend to treat as symptoms will worsen over time.

How long are legs sore after varicose vein injections?

How long are legs sore after varicose vein injections?

Not very long: Sclerotherapy works by causing inflammation. As a result, you will probably have some discomfort afterwards. You can get a sort itchy, stingy feeling for about 20 minutes afterwards and then a tender, bruised feeling for a couple of days. None of this is likely to keep you from doing anything but Ibuprofen helps. Wearing compression stockings afterwards usually helps too. ...Read more

Inflammation: Hard to answer without seeing in person, but the veins can be inflamed from standing for a long time, for instance on the job. When you are home, elevate your legs, apply a heating pad on a light to medium setting (but never sleep with it on you, can cause burns), or if you can take ibuprofen or naproxen (Aleve), do that. However it would be best to see your doctor for evaluation. ...Read more
