She has been diagnose with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue maybe because I have that too. She has a generalized muscle pain all the time. When her veins gets swollen, the pain gets worse. Nobody pays attention to her veins problem. (maybe because they don't know the answer). She has lost about 22 pounds. Now she is not able to work. All this health problem started when she was on her 20 weeks of pregnancy. Now her baby is almost 1 year old and she feels worse. If anyone knows and think that knows the answer to this medical problem, let me know.

  • I'm very sorry to hear your daughter has this very unfortunate disease. Isn't physiotherapy/aerobic exercise and antidepressants meant to help manage those symptoms? If she has Venous insufficiency I would recommend you look in to trying Daflon. This is a phlebotropic drug that is used here in Europe but might not be so easily available elsewhere. Type daflon(dot)com in your browser to see the official manufacturer's video etc. There is a connection, I think, with the autoimmune problems found in some connective tissue diseases and venous insufficiency. Ask your doctor about it. I've had an operation to remove some varicose veins in my legs recently and have been advised to seek a rheumatologist to be assessed for connective tissue diseases/vasculitis. I know fibromyalgia is a form of connective tissue disease but fortunately my symptoms are nothing like fibromyalgia. Anyone who reads this and experiences similar symptoms as originally described along with venous insufficiency would be well advised to seek a rheumatologists to be assessed for connective tissue disease and vasculitis.

  • SkySky,No i have not arrived at a diagnosis yet. As of this date I have seen a rheumotologist who thoroughly reviewed me for many of the autoimmune/connective tissue type diseases. I have had my hormones tested by an endocronologist and have seen a neurologist (concerning pains) and a second vascular doctor. None of them could find a definitive diagnosis but admit that I have real symptoms that are unusual. I have started seeing a dermatologist with a speciality in Ehlers Danlos syndrome which is a rare genetic disorder that effects connective tissue in the body. Connective tissues are tissues that are rich in collagen and elastin, ei: the skin, veins, joins, vitreous humour, cornea, optic lense etc. He reviewed me and really DOES NOT think that I have Ehlers Danlos syndrome but has taken a sample of my skin to do a histology and see if I have irregular collagen stacking in my skin. If this is irregular he will do some genetic testing on me to see if I have a compromised COLL3A1 gene which is a gene known to be responsible for collagen production. Since last posting I have developed visual problems. My vitreous humour has degenerated and detached from the back of my eye resulting in countless annoying floaters in my vision. I have also started seeing halos around lights which really bother me. I believe that all of these symptoms are related to a single unifying disorder (not just coincidence) because all of the structures in my body that have been effected are connective tissue.IE: my skin becoming stretchier and more transparent (showing blue veins around eyes, waist, etc under the skin), veins becoming larger or varicosed and developing thread veins, my vitreous degenerating and I also believe these halos are caused by a compromised cornea. I am waiting to get a corneal topography scan to assess this further. The halos are definitely not caused by glaucoma or cataracts as I have seen numerous ophthalmologists since these visual problems developed and they ruled this out but could offer no other diagnosis...i am currently waiting on the results with this dermatologist and will post the findings on here. Sky sky, please describe your symptoms in greater detail I would be interested to hear further from someone who has similar symptoms.some more background information about me:I'm male, 26years old, non smoker, non drinker, don't take any drugs. I live In England and my ethnicity is mixed european (italian, Croatian, portuguese).One thing that I get a lot from doctors is suggestions that I just fall on the outer edge of the bell curve of normal parameters. which suggests I don't have a major known disease but the way my body is put together is just more susceptible to developing varicose veins, having slightly stretchier more transparent skin etc...basically i am just unluckily abnormal! well even if that is the case I want a clear scientific picture of what is happening to my body so i can at least know how to take care of myself and have an idea of what to expect in the future! after all I'm only young and these symptoms have only started developing over the last 3-4 years! Just saying this because it might be the same for you too. anyway would like to know how you get on.message me if you want to talk further.Isambard.have you found out the real cause of this? I am having the same situation

  • isambard,I am sorry to hear that it is affecting your vision too. my symptoms start in Jan 2011, and it keeps getting worse, which really worries me. the most obvious symptoms for me are: Legs and feet discomfort including tingling, numbness, redness of skin, bulging veins. symptoms all over the body includes more and more visible veins, muscle cramps, sudden pain (I don't know it's vein or muscle pain, it just lasts a few second), strange sensation, bulging veins in hands and arms.within the past 9 months, I start from no visible veins in legs, feet and hands to bulging one right now. it just develops too fast to be pure vein issue.I have been to many doctors, and had my whole body check. nothing serious is found so far, but was told I got weak vein with no reason given. after reading your post about autoimmune/connective tissue type diseases, I went to a rheumotologist last week for some test including Antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA), and waiting for the result to come next week.this really depress me, and I must learn to relax more so that my immune system can function more. I am also trying the blood type diet. well....I am willing to try anything to improve it.I shall update you more when my test result is out. Keep me updated with your status, and May God bless us.

  • SkySky, Good luck with your investigation. did your rheumotologist say he had any idea of what it could be?please provide more background information about yourself as I would like to compare your case to mine. It would be nice if you could provide the basics, what is your age, sex, ethnicity, height and weight, where do you live etc...but also tell me about what you have been doing lifestyle wise before these symptoms took place, are you dieting are you going through a very stressful period in your life etc. For me, I started developing little thread veins (telangiactasia) around my ankles from the age of 19 and started noticing varicose veins in my legs around the age of 23 and it got bad to the point of needing surgery by 25. When I started noticing all of the other problems with bulging veins in my hands and arms and really blue visible veins all over the rest of my body I was at a very stressful period.I had a lot of pressure from university and I had my own person crisis and I was dieting heavily and doing cardio and a bit of strength training to loose weight. I am 177cm and weighed 70kg at this time, which for me was quite thin. I think that the stress and restrictive dieting and exercise could have exacerbated the issue for me but i certainly don't think it is the reason i am like this now. I think I had some other predisposition to developing this that was perhaps just made worse by my stressful lifestyle situation.since then all of the other problems started to develop such as visual problems. I just feel like my body has just really started to decay these last 2 years. This is despite suspending my diet and exercise regime and returning to a very healthy lifestyle, in fact now I put on weight, I weigh 83kg, (13 kilos gained in 2 years!!) despite this the veins in my arms and hands are still really bulgy and visible blue under my skin. I'm trying to loose weight again more healthily but can only imagine how ridiculously bulgy my arms and hands will look if i ever reach 70kg again.I know what you are feeling and I remember how distressing it was to see all these sudden changes to your veins and not be able to do anything to stop it. Please try to relax about it. My advice is not to keep looking at them. wear long sleeves if your climate permits. You need to rationally go about diagnosing/treating it and not let the concerns of what it could be or what it might turn in to consume you. this kind of thinking will never serve you. And of course you might have something different to what I have and not develop all the other problems I have had. If you have actual varicose veins in your legs I would suggest looking in to Daflon, there is a good video explaining how it works in the official website. Also Grape Seed Extract high in OPCs(Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins) is meant to be really good for strengthening blood vessels and other connective tissue. I would suggest you do some research in this and see.Anyway let me know more info, would be helpful for both of us.And GOOD LUCK with the investigation.Isambard

    8 Surprising Facts About Cholesterol

    Did you know that one in six US adults has high cholesterol?

  • I am 33 years old male, Chinese, 175cm and 60 kg. I am always thin,but lost 5 kg because of the problem. My problem happens after I changed my job, which is a bit more stressful. But I did not feel that serious. I have healthy lifestyle.My rheumotologist said It does not look like vasculitis as I have no red dot on skin. Yes, when you google vasculitis image, a lot of red dot skin images shown. So just wait for the test result now.Do you find Daflon & OPC helpful? I have been taking vitamin c, horse chestnut, butcher broom, and using some topical lotion from here: http://www.commonwealthherbs.com/2011/07/varicose-veins-a-solution/By the way, how is your legs after operation? All pains gone? Any sign of coming back? You are so right that I must relax more to it.

  • Thanks SkySky for the info. First about supplements: my research also kept coming up with horse chestnut and butcher's broom however those herbs are very harsh on your stomach. Many people can have upset stomach from prolonged intake of these herbs, it really bothered my stomach when I tried them. This makes using them as a long term preventative measure very difficult. Daflon is basically the bioflavanoid Diosmin and it is easier on the stomach and has no known complications with other medicines. It has been the subject of many successful medical trials and from what numerous UK vascular doctors have told me it is the most effective medicine/herb that exists. more effective than horse chestnut. In another test, Grape seed extract proved to be just as effective as Daflon but I have read less research in this. Daflon and Grape seed extracts are certainly beneficial for people with severe symptoms such as leg ulceration and swelling, for us who are still developing varicose veins I think it works but with varying success rates.I suggest you try the herbs I listed (if available in your country) and drop the harsh herbs. In my experience when my stomach was compromised because of those herbs and the general stress of my situation I felt a lot more pain and fatigue. I think the stomach is very linked to the rest of the body and if you are not right in the stomach it can make the other problem areas worse or at least make it seem worse because your coping mechanism is compromised. And this is also why I suggest for you to try to de-stress your life, to improve your coping mechanism and save your stomach! Perhaps also review what you eat. If you eat a diet that is too high in Salt/Sodium and sugars it could perhaps effect you as well.As for your other question, did Daflon and OPC work specifically fo me: I feel that it helped some of my symptoms a bit before surgery. I now take a reduced dose of Daflon and have added Grape seed extract (in a powder that a mix with water) just as a preventative measure so that I don't get varicose veins in my legs again. This of course is my own decision, i wasn't told to do this by my doctor but I will do anything to avoid getting them again! This of course is assuming that my/our varicose veins have developed for the same reasons other people's varicose veins develop. If for instance I have some other unknown genetic problem that causes these veins then perhaps all this daflon and grape seed I take is utterly useless aside from making me feel like I am doing something pro-active. This is why I am fighting so much to get a diagnosis to understand what is wrong with me!!About my operation:So I had an operation to close the long saphenous veins on both legs. These veins are the two main superficial veins in the legs and if they are incompetent (vein valves fail and let blood flow backwards) it eventually leads to all sorts of varicosities and trouble. They closed these veins using a treatment called VNUS which i think uses heat from laser or some other source to cook the vein shut. Then they removed many other smaller varicose veins using a scalpel and a special hooked tool. after the surgery i had swelling and some discomfort but after a few months the strong pains i was feeling really improved. Although, I then developed a lot of prominent veins in my feet and continue to have it today which is upsetting because it is ugly. At least it doesn't really hurt anymore and in general my legs have a more improved stamina for standing and sitting without feeling pain. In all I think the surgery was essential and am very glad I had it! I actually needed a second operation to correct some continued refluxing on my right leg. They had to completely close down the full length of the long saphenous vein on my right leg.Have you seen a vascular doctor? have they performed an ultrasound scan on your legs to determine if they are incompetent? I would suggest this and if you are really suffering from leg pains and varicose veins then I would consider surgery. You sound REALLY thin. the less body fat you have the more visible the veins in your body become. If you gain a bit of weight the appearance of your veins will improve at least, if not the cause of why they are thus.Good Luck.Keep my informed.

  • isambardI went to many vascular doctors in the past, and had ultrasound scan many times. the long saphenous veins on both legs are somewhat incompetent, and they are keep getting worse quickly. I avoided looking at them in the past week, and today I found that there are bluging veins on both arms, hands,legs and feet. here is the legs photo I took today: http://screencast.com/t/8UMniOv0rMy rheumotologist told me this week that my autoimmune screening tests for RA and vasculitis are normal except C3 C4 complement somehow low, and she does not know why as other tests like ANCA confirm it's not vasculitis or Systemic lupus erythematosus. RA tests are also normal. I highly suspect something is attacking my veins or even arteries, but all blood test not able to show anything. I will see another rheumotologist in next 2 weeks, and hope to find some clues.I also start to experience some vision problme like you, having more and more floating things. I had it check, and my doctor said there is no big problem with my eyes.by the way, do you get paresthesias over your body? I have very serious paresthesias on my legs and feet, sometime my hands and other part of the body. with muscle spasms also.Did you have any MRI test done? our veins issue should not be Multiple Sclerosis related, right? I really want to know whatelse can cause these beside autoimmuse issues.

  • Skysky,Very interesting that you say you see floaters now. would you say your floater appearance is a new thing or something you always had and are only now starting to notice (after I mentioned it?) are you myopic?I hate to say it but from the picture your legs look normal. it does have a pronounced vein but it is not tortuous. i had very veiny legs including knots of veins. of course that is not to say that you don't have incompetency as proven by the ultrasound and I know how uncomfortable that can be. i think i had a low compliment level of either c3 or c4 but i was told that it can become low if you are recovering from a cold or very stressed/tired(?) i do have paresthesia or tingling and numbness. I too had the same thoughts as you, that there is something attacking my vein, especially as it came at a time of stress and weakness in my general health. I wish i could tell you what else could be the issue with us, not even the doctors know. I don't know if we have the same issue but i am grateful to have found someone with similar symptoms as me. I would like to discuss these issues a bit more but i think this forum has expended its usefulness. it takes too long to post our comments and can be restrictive. please message me on skype so that we can discuss this in quicker more direct manner. you will find my skype address in my profile.speak to you soon,Isambard

  • My daughter has almost the same symptoms. She has been diagnose with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue maybe because I have that too. She has a generalized muscle pain all the time. When her veins gets swollen, the pain gets worse. Nobody pays attention to her veins problem. (maybe because they don't know the answer). She has lost about 22 pounds. Now she is not able to work. All this health problem started when she was on her 20 weeks of pregnancy. Now her baby is almost 1 year old and she feels worse. If anyone knows and think that knows the answer to this medical problem, let me know. hi my name is joey im 24 from north carolina usa i also have had the same problems my vein hurt tru my whole body feels like they have knots in them the doctors say oh you fin oh your to young to have any problem there nothing wroung with you they think im just lieing or something i have pains that shoot all trough my body but feels like it runs tru my veins but iv done my own resarch own it and its called vasculitis look it up on gooogle it will show you everything

  • Hi Guys,I'm suffering with some very similar issues with my veins. It started earlier this year with me having very cold feet; shortly afterwards I noticed some hair loss on my calves and feet and one evening my right leg felt like it was going to explode.Then around 1 month ago I could suddenly see all the veins in my legs when I woke up one morning.Although at first they were not raised, rather like the pronounced veins in my feet and hands, they have started to bulge unless I sit down and put my feet up. It's no exaggeration to say that they are literally covering my legs from top to toe.In just 1 month it has progressed to the point where I can barely stand for more than minute without feeling like my feet and lower legs are filling with blood and I have to rest up. It's definitely worse on warm days.My muscles also feel like they have cramping sensations with a real tightness in my inner thighs.Doctors have told me that I have incredibly prominent veins and may be on the way to getting varicose veins but they can't be sure.I suspect some sort of venous insufficiency and will be getting a duplex ultrasound to determine whether there is any reflux in my upper leg veins that is causing these symptoms. What is totally confounding is that I'm in my early 30's and have gone from being a fit active guy to a virtual grandad who constantlyhas to take the weight off. All this has happened really fast so I am understandably very concerned.I've had my thyroid function and blood pressure checked and both are normal. Test for diabetes which was negative. I'm not overweight and am 6ft tall.I don't smoke, do drugs or drink too much but I've more then fulfilled my yearly quota of swearing this last month.If anyone want to share info, please reply and I'll happily get back to you.

  • If any of you are taking antibiotics stop. And if you absolutely have to anything in the zithromax family is not as bad. Its the good bacteria in your gut is getting whiped out. Candida which is a fungas is causing an infection in your intestines and it is getting into your blood stream. If any of you have elevated white blood cells this is a inflammatory response to it. Also take note. Any weird rashes or athletes foot. The eye stuff is vascular. And the vascular stuff is luekoclasic vasculitus. the off and on crappy feeling is flare ups. So you need to stay away from sugars and carbohydratestays. the pregnant girl. This might have happened because the baby's immune system was fighting her body or gut flora. Google candidemia. Leaky gut. This is very dangerous and potentially fatel.
