Hi Ravi Shankar,
Yes, it is varicose veins, your other reports are normal.I would suggest u some precautions:
Keep watch over your weight,as it reduces the pressure over veins of your legs..
Donot sit or stand over long periods of time,take breaks to move on-increases blood flow.
Keep your legs elevated.
Take Leech Therapy under expert ayurvedic physician.
Wish you good health.

Hi,I have a unusual issue that causes muscle fatigue, general fatigue, and slightly elevated blood pressure. I have been to the E.R. once, and they checked my blood, but said everything came back perfect . I know the doctor said something about checking for sodium potassium and thyroid stuff. I don t know what else though. I ve had this issue for about 3 months now, and it started simply with slight weakness in my upper legs, then as the the day would progress, it would move into calfs, neck and shoulders, etc. Now, anytime I try and walk up stairs,my legs burn, I have out of breath, and it s just very uncomfortable.

I had a baby 18 months ago and previous to that suffered from Hyperthyroid due to a virus. I was suffering from significant tachycardia and excessive sweating at that time. RAI Uptake was done etc, Virus resolved rendering my thyroid now Hypoactive for the last 4 years. I am currently taking Synthroid 150mcg. I have been a runner my entire life however first trimester complications caused that to cease. I am not just getting back into it and training for a half marathon. I have noted that my heart rate even after 5 minutes of running is around 186 bpm. I went to my GP to have my TSH and T4 checked to be sure I wasn t over medicated. Everything was normal. His response to this high BPM was to add a Beta-blocker. I have leary of taking it because I have read it will greatly affect my performance while running. I also get a quivering type feeling here and there through out the day in my heart. I get extremely flush almost purple in my face when running. I m wondering if there could something significantly more wrong than the thyroid affect as my GP has mentioned. I asked for a stress test and he said I didn t need one. I am 34 years old, slightly overweight still from post-partum. no other medical conditions, no history of any previous medical conditions other than Gestational Induced Hypertension and ecclampsia which clearly has resolved and Gestational Diabetes which also resolved.
