Hi everyone as anyone else had this .. i had a while now not sure anyone remembers me saying had burst blood vessels and i have lots of thread veins around my ankle. i was asked have i had an injury? nope not at all then came home slept and thought well when i was a child under 9yrs of age i did sprain my ankle i have done so many things had lots of broken bones over the years .
i walk on it and it just gets fatter the fluid builds up and my leg looks fat and i am very slim petite build, i never noticed it one of my girls did they just piped up ..caroline your legs fat!! i was like what lol .. looked and could not really see so had to sit and look .. but its been going on a while now and Dr thinks tendonitis as i have a pulse in my feet so not thrombosis but asked me what i have had before and i said inflamiritiritis or something forgotten it was a red inflamed vein from groin to ankle really very painful had a stocking and walking stick as puttin any pressure on my foot caused pain, i had just given birth this was 12 yrs ago now though, i have lots of veins unfortunately that stand out a mile but dont bother me i still put a skirt on! (in summer)
my ankle gets pain and the calf but on?off i have really rested since yesterday and looks fine, given me some inflamatory gel to put on insists i try it .
Does anyone have this and has vanished or can last longer as i have read which i so hope not as i so need to be on my feet a lot and driving and doing a lot of stairs lol.
