What You Need to Know About Varicose Vein Pain
If you're using compression stockings to control your varicose vein pain—you're not alone. But you don't have to live with painful varicose veins anymore. Three people explain how finding the right doctor for varicose veins, at a varicose vein center, changed their lives forever. Pamela Wolff, Scott Eckroate, and Esther Pitts were all suffering from varicose vein pain. Their problems were not related, but they found one solution. Dr. Ram Ravi. He is a vein care specialist at the North Ohio Vein Center in Westlake, Ohio. It's part of the North Ohio Heart/Ohio Medical Group. About 30 percent of women and 20 percent of men are suffering from painful varicose veins. That means when you’re talking varicose veins vs spider veins, chances are, you know someone who may also be dealing with them. Eckroate says a friend asked him about his varicose veins on a camping trip. The friend asked him “Do those hurt?” Eckroate says he didn’t think much about his painful varicose veins up until that point, but the answer to the question was “Yes.” Eckroate says he did not realize that there are 6 stages of varicose veins and that he was at stage 5. He says if he had waited any longer, there was a chance his veins could’ve burst. He did not want that to happen, so he went to see Dr. Ravi to treat his varicose veins. Dr. Ravi, and his technician Nicole Burke, treated Eckroate’s varicose vein pain. Scott received a series of injections that dissolved his damaged veins. Burke used an ultrasound machine to highlight Eckroate’s painful varicose veins. Dr. Ravi used the images as a guide to inject veins. Scott says the results were almost immediate. He says he no longer has pain and that over time his damaged veins have dissolved. He does wear compression stockings to help the healing process, but he’s extremely happy that he can wear shorts again. Now he tells anyone he meets with varicose vein pain to not hesitate, get it taken care of, do not let it go as long as he did. Esther Pitts says her legs were cramping—especially at night. For a while she tried eating bananas and drinking sports drinks, thinking she needed more potassium in her diet. But as time went on, her cramps got worse. She says they moved up her leg into her thighs and buttocks. The pain would keep her up at night, but she says it wasn’t until her knees started swelling that she decided to seek treatment for her varicose vein pain. After her initial visits to the varicose vein center, she found out that her lymph nodes were blocking her blood. This is what was causing her painful varicose veins. Dr. Ravi noticed that there were large veins, that were leaking, and he needed to close them with a laser. Pitts says the procedure was not painful at all. She says Dr. Ravi numbs the area and the laser procedure only took about 10 minutes, but she is extremely happy with the results. Her varicose vein pain was gone almost instantly. She is glad to be swimming again and loves her compression stockings. She says they massage her legs and if you’re suffering from varicose vein pain, do not hesitate to get them treated. Pamela Wolff says her legs would get so tired that she would have to go lay down, in the middle of the day, even during parties at her home. Her quality of life was suffering. She knew varicose vein pain ran in her family, but she was not expecting it to be like this, so she was relieved to find a doctor for varicose veins. Wolff had to have a couple of veins removed, and have the laser treatment done. The last phase of her treatment is sclerotherapy, but her painful varicose veins and the swelling are gone. And by the way, Dr. Ravi’s technician Nicole Burke is not only a medical professional—she’s also a patient. She noticed her legs were getting heavy and tired, so she decided to get checked for varicose veins and found out she needed treatment. “I did mine on my lunch break”, she says. “I would do a laser on somebody then we would prep me, get another ultrasound tech, and then she would do my laser.” Burke uses her first-hand knowledge of the procedures to help every one of Dr. Ravi’s patients who come into the varicose vein center. She explains to them that the pain is minimal, there's just a little bit of soreness, some bruising, but overall it's ”not as bad as you think it's gonna be.” The important thing to understand is that there is no one single treatment for varicose veins. Everyone is different and so are the treatments for varicose vein pain. Lifestyle changes like weight loss and walking can help treat varicose veins and spider veins. You can also try compression stockings. If these conservative methods do not get your varicose vein pain or spider veins under control, Dr. Ravi and the team at North Ohio Heart/Ohio Medical Group will help. Dr. Ravi adds that most insurances will cover the treatment of varicose and spider veins if conservative methods fail.
