I have a couple, the only treatment I know of is to stay off your feet or see a plastic surgeon

My mom had painful varicose veins since her first pregnancy. They got increasingly worse with every pregnancy. She had surgery 5 years ago, after trying an endless number of treatments. Surgery was the only thing that has given her long lasting relief from the pain. And her legs look great now!


She tried herbal remedies, pills, shots in the legs.. She had varicose veins all the way up to her panty line. Everything else she tried was painful and the relief from pain was usually short-lived.

LOVE THY NEIGHBOR.

They sliced her legs open (about 160 slits, total), and stripped the veins.
