Re: vein Problem

did this just 'happen" one day or has it been a rather slow onset over time? do those veins appear to be much thicker than the normal?at the very least,this should be evaluated by your doc for a possible DVT type situation.DVT is deep vein thrombosis,or'blood clotting within the the veins.my ortho thought i may have had this shortly after i had a knee surgery as the pain was much more than i should have been having in my legs.tho i also have a condition called RSD which is in itself extremely painful,i have a vaso motor malfunction in both legs due to spinal cord injury.but the situation was totally unreleated to all of that.what he did was just send me for a simple ultrasound done on the veins within both legs just to make sure i had no clotting going on inside any of my veins.this is the test that you really should have done.it would be able to tell whether or not there is anything actually going on in your veins.

considering your wieght tho i am not too sure just how easily this would be able to be done on you,but there are other types of testing they can do as well.the ultrasound is simply the quickest and easiest way to go if possible.

this really does need to be looked at by your doc tho,very soon if possible.if there is indeed some sort of DVT it can cause a multitude of other major medical problems,so this is why you need to have this done very soon.

there could be other possible reasons for the sudden prominance of your veins tho.sooo,just seeing your doc and having him or her take it from there would really be in your best interest at this point.hopefully this is just normal for you and not something more ominous.please just see your doc and then let me know what you find out,K? good luck,FB
