Re: Anyone else have horrible vericose veins?

In other pg's when they weren't as severe, I didn't care who saw them, but now I look too disfigured to show off.
I feel this way as well. Compression phs just don't do much for them. Mostly they make me hot, I struggle to get into them/out of them, and when I take them off all the blood rushes in and it hurts like you know what. The only thing that makes them look better now is to get my feet above my heart but then my head stops up! And of course it all comes back as soon as I put my feet back down. I amuse myself in the bathtub by putting a foot up on the faucet (while sitting) and watching the blood drain. It's a good thing I like the color purple!
