Leg Pain Explained, some anyway

Aug 10, 2015 3:44 PM

Saw the vein clinic today. I now have lower leg venous reflux, so I'm in compression stockings permanently. We caught it early, before any varicose veins. He said it's possible its causing some of my leg pain, stinging & tingling & burning, afternoon (or after activity) tiredness, swelling and even fluid retention. Yippee on the hot tight stockings, especially in this heat wave! 😰 Vegas girl I could never be...Lol 🙏🌼

Oh my FL81. Glad it was caught early.
My grandmother started suffering with that in her twenties! So glad I haven't inherited that one.

PJB, so am I. I had to make an exchange at Belks today. The sales rep noticed my stockings. I was in shorts, stockings, socks (for sweating) & sneakers. She asked what I had and after I told her she pulled up her slacks, lowered her stocking and showed me a very ugly bluish-black, softball sized area on her shin. She said, "this is what your doctor is trying to protect you from. Be thankful they caught your's early!". Believe me I am! And I'm now convinced my mother had it before she died because her whole heel was the same way. 🙏🌼

Flappsy, I am so glad for you that they caught it early. Hopefully this will take away some of your pain and swelling. It's nice to hear that something "good" has actually happened for you even though you have to wear the stockings from now on. 💕🙏🏻🌻
