I accidentally banged the inside of lower left calf @ gym. A few days ago and now it's warm to touch, vein painful to touch.Will it go away?
Yes: but not right away. It's probably a hematoma which is a blood clot in the tissue. It could be a blood clot in the superficial vein call superficial thrombophlebitis. I can't guarantee that it's not a deeper blood clot in the deep vein in your calf so you should see your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Dropped glass on my foot & a piece of it made a small puncture. Swollen vein & painful. Ice & elevated but goes back when I stand up. What do I do?
Inflammation: will certainly occur with an injury. Ice early, elevation then warmth later. The problem is that this presupposes that the injury Stopped occurring. If there is continuing injury, it's going to stay inflamed. Infection OR a retained shard of glass will keep the area inflamed until it is treated. Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health ...Read more

I would recommend you see your doctor to have these addressed. There ARE treatments for fibromyalgia! ...Read more

Not really: Although varicose veins can hurt after giving birth, you need to be cautious, as dr. Proffitt said. Pregnancy is a hypercoagulable condition. That means that your risk of getting a blood clot when pregnant is higher than normal. That increased risk doesn't go back to normal until at least 6 weeks after delivery. If you have a painful vein, see your doctor to make sure you don't have a clot. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
