I am a 22 yr old female and have a few issues with my legs and arm, that so far doctors have not been very helpful with:( ... I eat well and am not overweight - I was diagnosed with IBS about 3 years ago though i don't think that that will have any influence on these problems.

- I have broken capillaries all up my thighs (very noticable) and I am not sure on how to prevent any more from appearing and to treat the ones already there. I first noticed them when I was about 16ish...
- When I was young I use to get aches behind my knees, doctors said growing pains though i still sometimes get this now though its only ever at night! It is very painful!!! The veins are prominent and i get pain relef by strerching and leaning on my back with my legs raised and leaned against a wall...
- Unrelated to these maybe??? my arm (right) in my elbow goes dead (pins and needles) every time i am in bed, this too is starting to drive me crazy! its okay as long as i dont lie on my right side. Again, I get pain relief from holding my arm above my head and stretching it....

Any opinions would be appreciated!!

Thankyou for your help.
