  9. Spider veins on my legs are the bane of my life. I eat lots of veg. I always have & was a vegetarian in my thirties for 10years. As I am older there are more appearing. Two, 1 above & 1 below my tight knee look like bruises & have appeared in the same boney areas that I scraped badly when I fell in my twenties. Will they ever go?

  10. My friend walks at least 5 miles daily, does basic weights, eats very well, yet has varicose veins all of her adult life. She had one child, that was a preemie, with no excessive weight gain during the pregnancy. There must be another reason or two for them to develop. She did everything right. Makes one wonder.

    And I have varicose veins from venous insufficiency, do you advice me to stop the vitamin c?
    I cant take some fruits because I have acid reflux, so I get my vitamin c from the tablet.
    Pls reply

  16. I'm a runner for many years and have varicose veins for many years, I'm in my early thirties and never been pregnant, are you sure there aren't other factors? I also do not take vitamin c since I heard you should only take it when you have a cold or flu coming

  17. I started to see these when I was 15-16 and they only got bigger since time goes on. And all my childhood and teenage years I was active, like to play and run around and move my body. Also biked everywhere or walked. And I'm still active. My mom have these much worse and her mom had them too. I'm very sceptical more exercise would help with this. :/ It's just bothers me, because I would like to wear skirts and shorts but they look so bad the more time I'm standind up, and they show very fast as I get up from bed.

  18. If vericose is pooling of blood in veins, then it stands to reason that massaging carefully the affected veins or encouraging circulation should help, like elevating the area—this theory was confirmed to me recently, and it seems you have confirmed this in part. But I don't agree with it having surgery done, Dr.

    My testicles were horrible, but I started laying on my back with my legs up for 10 minutes or so, then crossing my legs indian-style, and I could, within a few minutes of laying on my back, feel pain in my testicals again—they were no longer numb. And the veins in my feet too, disappeared after only a few minutes for a whole day. Imma keep this up.

  19. If you have those superficial, dilated varicose veins.. no amount of exercising will improve or make them go away Dr Berg. Dilatation > separation of valves > retrograde flow. It takes years to get to that stage. That's chronic venous disease. Causes.. sedentary lifestyle, sitting and standing for prolonged periods, obesity, multiple births, localised trauma, and it's also hereditary. And you failed to mention reticular veins. Perhaps you should do an updated video.

  20. Hello sir

  21. Hi Dr. Berg! Question, I’m using a daily collagen powder that has ascorbic acid in it, I mix it in with my coffee. I do have spider veins and varicose veins, should I stop drinking it? It has 50 mg of ascorbic acid per serving, and I use 1 full scoop. Thank you so much! :o)

  22. Doc, how about vibration therapy (vibration plate, massage wand, etc) to improve blood flow in the legs–could this help?

  23. What about internal hemangiomas?? Do you know what can shrink them?! PLEASE MAKE A VIDEO!!!!

  24. exercising, walking and a healthy diet might prevent or decrease the risk, however, do they really treat even mild varicose and make them disappear once they are there ? i don't think so !! you have mentioned risk factors (hormones, genetics, pregnancy, lack of exercice..) but what about CVI (chronic venous insuffeciency) ?? besides the exact pathophysiology of this disease is still the this day unknown !! we are talking about histopathological changes within the vein tissue itself, collagen fibers ratio alteration !! can exercising reverse the histological changes in a vein ? i don't think so !! we don't even know if the collapsing valves cause the changes or vice versa !! and what do you mean by early stages ? "varicose" is a stage itself of CEAP classification. i think what Dr.Berg is saying can be valid in terms of PREVENTION but not in terms of TREATMENT.

  25. I walk a 5k every day, my husband is a very active person and walked school campuses as an assistant principal for years. We are both active and have veins in the thigh area of our legs. His are very bad on the inside area of his thighs. Don’t think inactivity did it for us. What else? We exercise. ????????

  26. I first got varicose veins at 15. I thought it was from working to hard as a waitress. I didn’t get breaks so my legs would be swollen from standing for so many hours straight.
