My MD said it was varicose vein, gyn said nothing can be done and dismissed it. I have pain, pressure, skin burning especially with standing or sitting too long. Should I see a vein specialist or "live with it" as gyn said. affects quality of life.
You need to be evaluated by a vein specialist who treats pelvic congestion syndrome. Most of them are vascular surgeons who specialize in vein disease or interventional radiologists. Do not be shy about asking before you make an appointment if the physician treats pelvic congestion syndrome since a relatively small number of physicians evaluate and treat this problem.
A great deal can be done to help many patients with pelvic congestion syndrome.
