I've had varicose veins off and on all my life, especially during 2 pregnancies in my early 20s. The 2 pregnancies brought the varicose veins out considerably. My 2 daughters are now in their 30s. My mom had them really bad. So all 4 of her daughters have them but of course, I have them the worst out of my sisters, but yeah, very genetic. I had 4 different shots to the veins throughout 30 years, got compression stockings when I got tired of the shots. They've been quiet for a couple years but within 24 hours my right leg has been hurting really bad, so I put the compression stockings on which help but don't stop the pain. I still work full time and have to elevate my legs at work for relief. Not sure if I should call my doctor or what she can do for me. Sometimes when I gain a couple lb., varicose veins act up so watching weight is very important for me. Trying grapeseed extract has helped me in the past so I'm going to take 2 today where I normally take 1 a day.

I took Venorid for varicose veins, don't try it. I used it as directed for almost a month, absolutely zero results. They say you'll notice a difference after first application, and that they will be gone by two weeks. None of that is true. It's a scam. Stay away.

I did the laser treatment for varicose veins 5 years back. Unfortunately 2 years back again it developed. Then tried Venorid serum for 2 months. It is really awesome. My post should be helpful to others.

I have taken EVLT (endovenous laser treatment) for varicose veins. I'm happy with the results and really started taking dieting and exercising more seriously.

I didn't take any special treatment for varicose veins. My friend referred Venorid serum and I used it.

Venorid is a good serum for varicose veins. Earlier it was much more visible, but now it has completely gone.

I used USA vein clinic for treatment of my varicose veins. They were so helpful, nice, and professional. They covered all my worries and they cured all my varicose veins.

I had EVLA treatment done for my varicose veins and it wasn't painful at all. My legs feel lighter and do not hurt anymore when someone touches them. I wish I had done this sooner!

For the past few months I've been drinking grape wine and I've noticed a great improvement in my varicose veins. I drink about 4 to 5 oz. three or four times a week. I had been taking vitamin E, C, Magnesium and folic acid and CoQ10 for about 2 years and never saw a difference. I think the varicose veins appeared about six years ago after I gained about 30 pounds and started yo-yo dieting, lately I've been keeping the weight off because I've changed my eating habits.
