Pain in ball of foot connected to varicose veins?

Pain in foot. The pain in the ball of the foot is unlikely due to varicose veins, even though he may have varicose veins. More likely reason for the pain may be due to a localized foot issue, and as such I would recommend evaluation by podiatrist. Also trauma to the area may be the source of this pain, again podiatrist would be able to determine that.
Typically not. Unless there are varicose veins on top of ball of toe. Common causes are corns or issues with joints arthritis or poorly fitting shoes.
Foot pain and veins. Pain in the ball of your foot should not be related to varicose veins. Most likely foot pain is related to an underlying foot problem. You should see a podiatrist for your foot and a vein specialist for your veins.
Maybe, but mostly no. Although some people develop discomfort in their foot as the result of vein disease, the pain is much more commonly in the leg. When varicose veins cause foot pain it is usually on the top of the foot where abnormal veins are usually located. The ball of foot is likely a different cause, such as muscle, nerve, bone, or joint discomfort. See podiatrist for foot and vascular doctor for vein problem.
No. . Venous disease does not usually affect the feet unless there is an obvious vein there that is swollen.

Could my possible foot injury have aggravated the varicose veins and caused phlebitis?

Its possible. If the foot injury is on the same side as the phlebitis, it is possible. In the area of treatment, you still need an anticoagulant (aspirin, Heparin shots, coumadin) for the phlebitis and compression. Usually phlebitis resolves with treatment in 3 to 6 months. Sometimes an ultrasound helps. Read more...
Possibly. As dr. Berg said, if it is on the same side, maybe. However, if you aren't even sure that you have injured your foot, it seems less likely. An injury can certainly cause phlebitis, but it is usually more direct and easy to connect. You can certainly get phlebitis simply because you have varicose veins. The most important thing that you need is an unltrasound and then treatment. Read more...

Visit an Orthopedist. Pain is an obvious sign something is wrong. Why wait for it to get worse? The more you wait the more damage you can be doing.

I don't believe the varicose veins on your right foot are related to your right knee pain. Read more...

Ortho eval first. Actually, i frequently see patients with varicose veins around their knee referred for vein treatment prior to arthroscopy or knee replacement surgery.

Once this is resolved then you can have your veins evaluated electively. Read more...

I agree with dr landi knee pain and ankle varicose veins are separate problems.The knee pain is probably a joint problem and should be evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon but I have seen some varicose veins around the knee cause pain.

Related? It is possible that something occurred during the varicose vein procedure that caused her feet to be cold afterwards but, quite honestly, it is unlkely. This is especially true if she has no other symptoms. If there is no pain, swelling or discoloration, there is a good chance that her cold feet are a pure coincidence. For peace of mind, it is probably worth checking it out though. Read more...

Unfortunately, You did not state if it was the inner or outer side of the leg and foot. I will assume for the time being it is the innerside. So you correct it could be a vein or a tendon. The great saphenous vein or the posterior tibial tendon. Try applying warm compresses and take an antiinflammatory, elevate the leg. If you have a flatfoot, wear an arch support. If you don't improve - goto doctor. Read more...
