I think I'm getting vericose veins

Hello ,

I think I am getting them .

I have small purple veins on one of my legs as well as some bruising, itching on the other leg in one spot . ( all this on my shins)

I also have the same veins on my upper ab and hip .

Are these vericose veins and what causes them ?

Also, what can I do to help them?

    Sounds like it is Phil, can't give you any great advice Phil as I have some terrible swollen ones on both of my legs, i get the itching, have what looks like bruises, there an eye sore, used to get excruciating pain in one behind my knee, you could maybe try Horse Chestnut, or Turmeric, to help your circulation. If there's a weight problem, best to try and lose some, easier said than done, I'm struggling with mine. 😔

    Have you had your profusion index levels looked at or had any measurements of your cardiovascular system? You sound like you have all the complications of compromised blood flow.
