Since there are limited veins, will a removal procedure accelerate new varicosities developing?
Laser Vein Treatment - 5 days ago1 answer
I'm 24. I've had a noticeable varicosity since I was 14 in my left leg. Now the pain is starting to be a significant problem in both legs. I'm nervous the procedure won't cure my problem. I've consulted with a surgeon who says the most noticeable vein is incompetent. In the last year, I can see the another varicosity on my right leg. I have a very healthy diet aside from caffeine like energy drinks. I am interested in a preventative diet.

speicalist wont treat my legs as he said they are reticular and normal with no reflux but they are so ugly and veiny what can i do about them.
Foam Sclerotherapy - 6 days ago1 answer
I had one session of sclerotherapy done where 5 large visable reticular veins were treated. My thighs and behind my knees are still very veiny. I had a scan and the doctor said he would not do anything to the vein as they are healthy veins and I have translucent pale skin. I hate them and really want them treated. should I get a second opinion?

Is upper arm vein sclerotherapy possible?
Sclerotherapy - 1 week ago2 answers
I'm grossed-out by my own upper, inner arms. Seemingly overnight the veins have become super visible and have now been that way for about a year. Is sclerotherapy an option? Would sclerotherapy of upper inner arm veins cause problems down the road (eg. for blood drainage or other issues)?

I am a football player and I am very physically active everyday. My vein is out over my ankle bone. Any thoughts?
Deep Vein Thrombosis Treatment - 1 week ago2 answers
I noticed a tightening from my groin to my ankle. I was wondering if I possibly pulled a tendon. If I relax, the vein disappears on the ankle bone. If I am active it comes out. I had a blood clot in my other calf last year but was treated for it. I kick with this foot and sometimes the ball hits off my ankle. I was worried it could be a blood clot. Any thoughts? Thank you.

I've had almost 20 sclerotherapy treatments on spider veins ranging from a cluster about the size of a nickel to smaller. None have disappeared. Why?
Spider Vein Treatment - 1 week ago1 answer
I went to two different places for the treatment over the course of a couple of years. One is on the left side of my knee and another on the right. Both have been treated several times. Other smaller ones are scattered on my legs. Even tiny ones don't seem to want to disappear.

Is it OK to take off my compression stocking for a few hours a day post vein stripping surgery?
Varicose Vein Surgery - 1 week ago1 answer
My surgeon told me to wear it 24hrs a day for 4 weeks then at night for another 2 weeks. I had my veins stripped in one leg 10 days ago, healing is going well, and the last couple days I've been removing my sock for 1-2 hrs in the afternoon and lying down outside or walking around to air it. Can new veins develop if I do this? Would it be risky if I stopped wearing it during the day on the 3rd week instead of the 4th? (I'm going on holiday soon and would prefer not to wear it in the day).Thanks!

For the last two days, during squats I feel the presence of a vein on the right side of my knee cap in the left leg. What could this be?
Vein Treatments - 2 weeks ago1 answer
It doesn't hurt, but it's very uncomfortable during a squat. I have been a gym-goer for the last 8-9 months. I'm certainly aware of form and technique. Weighted squats are my only leg exercise. I went in another state for holidays and missed about 4-5 squat session and on return squatted 20 reps with 20kgs, my one-rep max being above 45 kg.
