Re: varicose vein on labia now inflamed...anyone else
Yes I do have varicose veins on my legs. And yes, right now it is only one vein that is bothering me, although I do have more than one varicose vein. I guess this vein got inflamed or somehow infected. I began to get varicose veins when I was 21 when I was on the pill. I had a baby when I was 30, and I didn't notice any more problems than usual with them. But after having the baby, I've had lots of different health problems and some of them I blame on varicose veins. It wasn't until last week that I found out I had one on the labia. My primary thought antibiotics would make everything "settle down" but I am done with antibiotics now and still feel sore and swollen. I'm afraid every little thing will irritate it. I also am having some pain along the groin and pubic bone, so that kind of scares me. Maybe I have more problems than I realize.
Because of varicose veins, I am a little concerned about blood clots. My primary has told me I have a few superficial blood clots on my right arm and leg, and again said nothing to worry about. But I don't think it is normal for me to have this problem...
Thanks for writing.
