I don't know if this is thyroid-related or not. Does anyone else here suffer from varicose veins and is it connected to thyroid problems? I started with just one lumpy vein on the outside of one thigh nearly a year ago now - but they seem to have spread all over my thigh area on both legs over the last few months. It's very painful when I sit down - especially later in the day like now.
I'm undiagnosed (by the NHS) hypothyroid - but at my recent consultation with Dr P he says I have adrenal and hypothyroid problems. Just wondering if there's any connection between varicose veins and thyroid function. Does anyone else here have them?
My GP has referred me to a vascular surgeon and I see him in a couple of weeks time. I've got so used to NHS doctors telling me there's nothing at all wrong with me when I go to see them that I'm expecting much the same from him!
