I am having pain in my left leg from the knee down. I have varicose veins in that leg behind the knee and down. I am also having vertigo. I get dizzy and lose balance at times. It's like I go to focus on something and it moves. At times its so bad that I cant get my eyes to focus on anything. I dont even need to be moving or standing for it to start. Sometimes I'm just sitting still when it starts. I also am having this weird thing going on with my whole body acting like I've been startled. Can the two problems be symptoms for something bigger? I've had blood clots in the past but only when I was pregnant or taking birth control. Which I am doing neither. The only pills I take are a womans one a day multi vitamin and st johns wart for peri-menopause. Please help. I dont have med insurance at this time because I was laid off and lost it the day I was laid off. I dont want to go to the ER unless I totally have to. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!
