Does running worsen varicose veins on legs?

Not really: Running/walking activates the calf muscle pump which propels the blood return from the legs.

Can crossing your legs while sitting cause neuropathy and varicose veins?

Can crossing your legs while sitting cause neuropathy and varicose veins?

Unlikely.: I doubt that crossing of the legs will lead to either neuropathy or varicose veins. For neuropathy to occur, it would mean that there was pressure on a nerve to cause the problem. This would be quite difficult to happen with simple leg crossing. Varicose veins are due to malfunctioning valves and crossing of the legs will not damage the valves although it could decrease the venous return. ...Read more

Why are the lower legs vulnerable to varicose veins?

Leg Veins: Varicose veins occur most commonly in the lower legs because when we are standing the pressure will increase in the veins of the legs if the valves in these veins are not functioning properly (reflux).
