    Can varicose veins cause leg pain?

I have pains in my legs which happen after eating anything with oil. I was told it s impossible for gas to be in legs, however , when I take gas relief products or pass gas, the pain lessens. Could it be varicose veins? No one has given me a diagnosis.

I have studied your case.

Confirm this diagnosis by investigation.

Dilated vein need investigation like venous Doppler and valve study.

Many of my patients find relief with laser treatment for varicose vein.

For these symptoms analgesic and neurotropic medication can be started.
Till time you can consult physiotherapist for help.
Physiotherapy like ultrasound and interferential therapy will give quick relief.
I will advise to check your vit B12 and vit D3 level.

Vitamin E supplement with carnitine has good results.
