Do leg veins become more sensitive over time? I’ve had several previous clots.
I have been wearing compression stocking since I was 10. I am now 35. I’ve had 20+ clots in my legs with both venous reflux and post thrombotic syndrome. When I wear compression stocks, my toes tingle and make me very agitated. I just want to tear them off cause I can’t stand them being on.

Can stocking that are too tight cause a long term problem on my legs?
I bought a new stocking the same size i had before but the material is much thicker. I tried it for a day last week and I have been in pain since then. First i thought it is my sciatic nerve but both of my legs hurt. For the first couple of days my bones hurt as well, but now my muscles hurt too. It is hard to sleep, stand up and to sit. When I stand up I feel like there is pressure on my feet.I am worried about possible nerve or muscle damage.

I just had Endovenous Ablation performed a week ago ( VNUS CLOSUREfast). Is it common to notice different veins becoming more noticeable than before?
VNUS - 6 days ago
Veins that I never noticed before have become more noticeable and larger on the treated leg. It seems as if it has caused the other veins to enlarge because of the rerouting of the bloodflow. Is this just a hypersensitivity on my part or a real possibility ?

I am getting prominent veins in my legs that aren't tortuous but persist even when I’m not working out. How can I prevent this?
I just started moderate weightlifting a year ago and have noticed prominent veins on my arms, hands and legs that are still present when I'm not working out. They aren't tender or tortuous but I'm guessing they are related to venous insufficiency worsened from valsalva during weight lifting. I'm careful about exhaling when lifting but they seem to be getting worse. I barely do leg exercises so it's not from leaner legs. They are getting very unsightly. What can I do?

It is normal for veins to appear pink after two sessions of laser therapy, and take so long to fade?
I have had two sessions of laser therapy to get rid of the appearance of spider veins on my leg. However, I can't tell if my veins are being stubborn, or if they really are in the process of fading. At times they look worse than they did prior to the procedure. However, in certain lights, and at certain times of the day, they appear to be fading. Overall, they are pink, and I think there is bruising. Some areas resemble snake bites with cat scratches. My legs look sloppy and gross. Please help!

During my EVLT I could smell and taste a slight "burning” odor. I didn’t feel well during or after the procedure. I was really dizzy. Is that normal?
EVLT - 2 weeks ago
During the EVLT laser procedure I really didn't feel well, especially when the laser was on. I felt dizzy and the smell of "burning" freaked me out. Even after I was done, it took me couple hours to feel normal again. Is that normal?

Is it better to get laser ablation and/or phlebectomy before or after pregnancy?
I had laser ablation and plebectomy on my right leg with good results. I want to have, at least some phlebotomy on the left leg again. Is it better to do the procedure now or wait until after I give birth? The reason I am anxious about waiting to have the procedure is that I am getting these increasing blue spots up the sides (particularly inner side) of my leg and I am afraid those will get worse and stick around.

I had radio frequency ablation 10 days ago and the vein at the side of my knee and in my calf remain. Will they disappear completely?
