You need to make the treating physician aware of your symptoms.

Not sure the cause of these, see your provider. These are not usual symptoms post ablation. There may be something else going on.

It is very unusual to have systemic symptoms after sclerotherapy. I would advise you to go back and discuss your symptoms with the physician that did the procedure.

You should see your vein doctor to discuss these symptoms.

Ultrasonic guided sclerotherapy can be done for many different types of veins-saphenous. reticulars, spiders or perforators. I doubt that your symptoms are related to an ultrasonic guided treatment. How long after your treatment did the symptoms begin and what veins were treated and what was used to treat them? All of these questions are important. You should follow up with your treating physician.
