I read an article that stated that during weightlifting, oxygen is deprived from the body; a natural reaction is to see the bulging veins. Is this true? Why would weight lifting aggravate varicose veins?
I want to start weightlifting as it is my passion and can’t live without it. I’m concerned that with my history of varicose veins , weightlifting will make it worse. Also I had gone under VNUS closure of GSV in both the legs a year before n have some veins dilated on feet.
I am a 28 years old female diagnosed with bilateral femoral vein reflux via doppler study. I have been experiencing slight edema on lower legs, and occasional pain and burning sensation. I already have visible spider veins. I am considering taking grape seed extract or horse chestnut supplement to slow down or treat my DVI. Thank you.
I'm 28 with a 4 month old and severe reflux in both small and large saphenous veins, bilaterally. I had this condition before becoming pregnant. The doctor says we can do RFA, but I will have to pump and dump for 1 week, and then I can resume breastfeeding. Is it definitely safe to resume nursing my child after 1 week?
The tightness is still there, and it’s difficult to walk A LOT. I have been elevating my leg, wearing the compression sock when I leave the house. I have also been taking Tylenol, and been using the Arnicare gel at least twice a day. The blister popped or I popped it last night. What can I do to avoid infection and is this normal to be getting one?
I'm 25 with well muscular build. I had a VNUS closure procedure of GSV of both the legs a year ago followed by sclerotherapy session after a month. I am into weight training lifestyle so I started weight lifting 5 month after my procedure. I can see some tiny bulging of veins around calf, hamstring and on feet. Will these veins get worse and is it due to my hormone levels? These are really frustrating I feel helpless. Should I stop weight lifting?
20 years ago I had liquid Sclerotherapy and was bandaged for one month. The veins weregone when removed.Two months after my foam sclerotherapy my veins are still there. I know brown pigmentation takes a while to fade. The only difference is that this time I was only given compression stockings, not tight, to wear for 1 week. I've been wearing my own (stronger) stocking for 7 weeks, but no improvement. I'm very disappointed. Will the veins ever improve?
The small painful lump is located where my old visible varicose veins were from before the procedure. The lump is painful to touch but mildly sore when up on my feet when I walk toward the end of the day.
I'm a 36 year old female, nonsmoker, non-alcoholic with 20.5 BMI. I was recently diagnosed with venous reflux in my legs. I have no genetic history of anything similar & I do not show typical symptoms (no DVT, varicose veins, swelling); however upon the hardening of veins in my legs, I took a doppler exam that showed valves in my superficial vein were not closing effectively. Within a week, vein pain & tingly sensation spread to my arms, hands, feet & head. Is this a symptom of something else?
I am a teacher and am constantly walking and on my feet. I am having these procedures on both legs over an eight week period. It is scheduled to begin right before school starts and I need to know what kind of time I should expect to take off.
