Thread / Varicose veins anyone?

Recommended Posts

Junglechicken

Wondering if anyone has had to deal with thread or varicose veins?

 

How are they assessed by the doctor? should I be concerned at all?

 

I have a small patch of thread veins on my outer right thigh, and have a flare up of pain (it started 3 days ago with this flu virus) - pain also travelling all up and down my leg.

 

Any help appreciated!

Hi @Junglechicken,

 

Do you have any ideas as to these? I’ve had my first ever pop up on my foot.

 

Thanks,

When I mentioned them to my GP last year (I think), he dismissed it as a very minor thing.

 

I don't have any varicose veins, only thread veins in a patch on one of my thighs.

 

I think they are a circulatory thing, and my mother has them.  So genetic too probably?

Aww well I'm glad It's 'normal'. I had a painful area on my right foot + what seemed like a swollen vein - has gone down now after some time, was odd.

 

Hopefully just down to my awful walk + reluctance to ever tie my shoe laces (tight around forefoot, loose at the heal).

 

Thanks,

 

Icip.
