Hello, I am happy to help you with your question.

First of all, you have what sounds like chronic hypertension. This is common, and can affect the pregnancy. You are at risk for something called preeclampsia later in pregnancy. It is NOT associated with blood clots.

You have what sounds like superficial thrombophlebitis. This is usually treated with rest, elevation, ice, and compression stocking. Please bring it to the attention of your doctor for final advice.

I hope this helps. Please consider the Premium service if you would like a more prompt or detailed answer.
