This is a strange one. It started about a year ago when I go to bed. It feels like I can feel the blood running through my veins. Its a horrible feeling, not painful, just scary. Recently it has been getting worse. I feel it through the day, not just in bed. Plus it sometimes feels as though I have something living under my skin and is kicking! I mentioned it to the doctor recently and he said "thats strange". That was it! It could be described as a fluttering or bubbling feeling.

I worry because I have a varicose vein in this leg and I retain water. Instinct tells me it is something to do with my circulation but I worry that it may be a warning sign of DVT and as I fly at least 4 times a year, I am worried.

Has anyone suffered anything similar?
