    Is this a varicose vein?

    Please don't be mean, this is something I've become really distressed and insecure about.

    I'm a 23 year old female and weight 9st and over the past 2 years i've been getting thread veins (spiders veins) on my legs, 2 months ago a vein from behind my knee started to protrude after i went on a 3 hour strenuous walk 

    I feel as though its getting bigger? and it's always there when i stand and also aches quite a bit, since this vein appeared i've noticed bulgy veins appearing on my feet 

    I spoke to a doctor earlier and could only get a phone appointment but sent him the photo I've attached here and he seemed confident in telling me that it isn't varicosr and looks like a normal healthy vein and that there's nothing to worry about, but I still don't seem so sure? 

  • 23 years old with varicose veins?

    Two years ago i started noticing spider veins appearing on my thighs, as a smoker and wearing high heels a lot and not having the most active life style this now doesn't seem a huge shock to me,

    fast forward to now, after going for a long vigorous up hill walk one day, the day after i noticed a blue vein protruding from behind my knee, i can feel it and it stands out, this really scared me as i read that there is no cure and that they will only get worse with age, i struggle with body dysmorphia so having these veins appear sent my brain into over drive really.. not long after i started noticing a big bulgy colourless vein on my foot it appeared just suddenly,

    I know I don't have great circulation as I'm often getting pins and needles (numb legs and feet) when sat for too long and it can become painful, I did go for a doctors appointment recently and had my bloods done just to be told everything was fine, I have to hold off getting an examination because of covid,

    can anyone help? I feel like im going mad and find this so infuriating as i have no one to talk to about it and everything online scares me telling me it will just get worse over time and more will appear :(

  • Venous disease?

    I'm 22, 5'3 and a healthy weight but over the past 2 years I've been collecting spider veins over my legs (worse around my thighs) and a small blue vein that sticks out (varicose?) behind my knee.

    I was living quite a sendentary life style due to depression and spending most days in bed which maybe contributed to this? and when i did go out i would wear high heel shoes all day.

    I want to know, will my legs become worse, will more and more spider veins appear as i age? even if i now live a more active life style?

    I've been surprised by how quick the appearance of my legs have changed in 2 years, it scares me?

  • Will my spider/varicose veins just continue to get worse?

    Over time will more develop and become visible or does it come to a point where new ones stop appearing?

    I've only started getting thread veins the past 2 years and they cover my thighs and i have a blue varicose vein behind my knee, i use to feel really confident about my legs but now I don't and am considering maybe getting tattoos over the spider veins?

    will my spider veins turn into varicose? will more and more keep appearing as i age?

  • Can I use my at home IPL (hair remover laser) on Thread veins?

    I bought a LUX skin laser hair remover a while ago, and heard about how people get IPL treatments to get rid of their spider veins?

    Do you think I could try and use my IPL laser on my thread veins on my legs?

  • Will my spider/thread veins get worse?

    I'm 23 and the past couple years ive been noticing thread/spider veins on my legs, first noticing them on my thighs, i've noticed that more are appearing all over my legs, i only started noticing them when i was going through a depressive episode and in result living a sendentary life style (laying in bed all day everyday)

     these days i'm trying to be more active as I don't want them getting worse?I've read recently that spider veins will just get worse as you age so there's no real way to prevent them once you have them? They make me really upset and self conscious as a couple years ago I had really nice looking legs but now I can't bare to look at them?How bad will they get and how quickly will they develop? (I'm a normal weight and believe I'm quite healthy)

  • will i get keloids from nostril piercing?

    A couple years ago I had my nostril pierced and started getting a big red bump where the piercing was (keloid) this may of been because I swapped to a ring too early but could that be a reason? I then took it out and after a while it went and the hole healed up 

    two years later (yesterday) I got my nostril re-pierced and I m so scared I will get keloid scarring again? I ve got my septum and ears done and also tattoos but never had issues with them? 

    someone please help?:)

  • Could I be Autistic?

    I've always struggled to make friends, and to converse with people my main issue is to come up with things to say I constantly feel like I have very little to no train of thought and I have a blank mind, but I've realised that I can also be like this with family too although I think it's worse with strangers, i have to rehearse what im gonna say in my head before i say it, and most things that i say feel forced and dont talking just doesnt come naturally for me at all, I feel like I have a different way of thinking to other people, I have no issues with relating to people, understanding their emotions im very empathetic towards other people and am good at reading them, im very observant, i come across as awkward with people as once all the small talk is out the way i just have NO idea what to say my safe place is to talk about deep and meaningful things i struggle with casual chit chat and stories, i feel like i come across as boring and too serious half the time i always feel like i act way too mature for my age, i also really struggle with anxiety and self esteem i have very little confidence, but am i socially inept and awkward because i havent had much practice and would isolate myself as a kid, or becauss i could possibly be autistic?

  • Social anxiety, shyness or neither?

    So my whole life I've been labelled as the quiet and shy girl, and it's always been so damaging to my self esteem to constantly hear this, as I want more than anything to be the loud and confident one with many friends.

    The truth is I don't really have any friends at all and for a long time I've socially isolated myself, I have self esteem issues and issues with my appearance and probably over analyze EVERYTHING, I'm very much in my own head.

    But when I think of a shy person I think of someone who can't keep eye contact and they're very too themselves, they don't say much because they are scared of getting judged, but they know what it is they want to say, for me the issue isn't exactly that, I'm labelled as the quiet one I think because I don't talk much and I don't share stories like everyone else does and I only say a sentence wait for a response and then another sentence, but that's because my brain feels EMPTY/BLANK pretty much ALL the time, I can't think of things to say any stories or anything that relevant to the situation im in, I know people who talk ENDLESSLY to their friends and peers, and im always baffled by how they can continously think of things to say

    let me say that I initially thought this was just a problem with new people but I've realised that this is also an issue with family and people who im super close with, I suffer from generalized anxiety and depersonalization (dissociative disorder) maybe this is why I seem to be frequently void of thought?
