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. Varicose veins are more easily treated early in the process verses waiting for years before you seek out treatment. You can contact a board certified phlebologist or a vascular surgeon. ...Read more

Leg pain: Leg pain is tough to simply diagnose over a computer. possibly with the "lots" of walking you have been doing, you are getting an "overuse" syndrome with strains and pains of your leg muscles, etc. Try some over the counter nsaids and get appt for eval to have the legs checked out and the veins looked at too.

Bad Veins: What you are describing are varicose veins with either areas of enlarged varicosities(look like grapes) or areas of superficial phlebitis(clotted veins), either way you should see a vein specialist for a full venous evaluation including a venous reflux ultrasound to make the diagnosis and help to determine the treatment plan. ...Read more

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

Varicose veins: These aren't dangerous but can become painful if the thrombose (develop clots inside). Weight loss could potentially help. If aestheticly unpleasing or painful, you can see a plastic or vascular surgeon. ...Read more

Potential Clot.: No, this is not typical. In fact, you are describing symptoms that could very well be indicative of a clot formation in your leg. You need to be seen as soon as possible to remove all doubt. Untreated blood clots can have catastrophic results if allowed to go untreated. ...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

Hematoma: you probably burst a varicose vein causing a lot of blood that is trying to resolve itself but it is taking a while because there was so much of it. You are on several things that should minimize risk of PE but would aggravate something like this. Put warm compresses on it, move around as much as possible but put the leg up when you are not moving around to reduce pressure on the veins. Gd luck ...Read more
