How painful can they be during pregnancy? Should you seek medical attention? Anything to help?

Pain is excruciating while standing. 36 weeks.

Under my midwife's direction I took Butcher's Broom supplements to combat my swelling during the last 6 weeks of pregnancy.  Worked like a charm!

It is also said to improve varicose veins.

Here's a random link I found: http://z6mag.com/health/butchers-broom-a-cure-for-varicose-veins-says-doctor-oz-168049.html

 (It's also called "box holly").

Thank you. She is out buying spandex as we speak. And made an appt with the mw in the morning. This pregnancy has been very different than the previous 2.

Jobst stockings, I think there also called TED stockings.  They are supposed to help I hear.

This was a life saver for vulvar varicose veins! I didn't realize how much my pain was draining me until I got one of these. I felt like a totally different person!
