Recently I've had a lot of health problems and I've been on about 12 different prescriptions. About 10 days ago I had a bad reaction to the meds, blacked out a few times, and hit the floor. At the ER they told me I sprained both knees and both ankles.
Anyway, today I noticed what looks like a vein popping out on my right shin. It's thin and purple - like somebody scribbled on me with a bic pen. There is also a definate bump there. I've also been getting some really bad muscle cramps in that leg, but they go away quickly.
I know this sounds like a varicose vein, but I'm only 21. I'm kind of worried because my Dad and several uncles have had blood clots in their legs which lead to heart attacks. Should I be worried about this? Do I need to have it checked ASAP? I'll be going back to the doc soon but probably not for another 10 days or so.
