Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there,I am an experienced Medical Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
This can be due to the following possibilities:
1.Peripheral vascular disease-- this refers to the blockage of the arteries supplying your legs. Atherosclerosis, arterial spasm, pressure on the artery from outside are some of the causes.2. Blood clots in the leg vein or DVT.
3. Kidney failure
4. Heart failure
If these conditions are ruled out, then your symptoms are purely varicose veins related.You should consider wearing compression stockings during daytime to prevent swelling.Compression stockings can be prescribed by your doctor and available in medical equipment stores.Low dose diuretic like Furosemide ( Lasix) 20 to 40 mg daily can be used to reduce leg swelling.Follow a low sodium diet and restrict fluid intake to 1500 ml daily or less.Please see your doctor soon. There is a natural supplement called Horse chestnut extract. This can be used 300 mg twice daily to treat your condition.
