Bulging veins and pain in Ankle/Foot

Posted , 6 users are following.

I have been suffering from ankle/foot pain for the last few weeks. I thought it was from exercising, but it just won't go away. I noticed that the veins on the back of my ankle are bulging as well and I had some swelling right underneath my ankle bone. The pain seems to be dull but radiates up into the back of my leg. Any thoughts?

    Go to the doctor asap. Does not sound good. Could be a sprain or hurt tendons. When I was in hospital there was a lady in the ward that had a broken bone in her ankle and was still able to walk. Rest it as much as you can and if it swells keep it elevated. Hope it's nothing serious. Let us know when the have been to the doctor. Good luck.

    So I went to the doctors today. He didn't feel like it was necessary to do the blood clot ultrasound. He did an X-ray on my foot and ankle and said it looked fine. He suggested I wear compression socks so I got a pair of those. It's pretty amazing. They give instant relief right when I put them on.
