I am having pain in my knee and lower leg. I have varicose veins in that leg from the knee down. I also am having "vertigo" symptoms which also started a few days before the leg pain started. Sometimes I'm just sitting down and it feels like my whole body gets "startled" for no reason. I have had blood clots before but it was when I was pregnant or when I was taking birth control pills, which I am neither. I am taking st johns wart and a womens daily multivitamin for peri-menopause. I have been wearing my "teds" the past two days figuring it was just my varicose veins making my leg ache. But I'm starting to wonder if it has something to do with the vertigo as well. Any help would be appreciated since I've lost my insurance because of a company layoff.
