  • I too have the problem of the veins popping in my fingers (and feet). I am a bit concerned and will mention it to my physician the next time I see him (September). However, my veins are very close to my skin so I figure that is the reason. This most recent popping is the worst of them all. My ring finger vein also popped when I was doing absolutely nothing. I put a cup into the sink. My finger swelled immediately and it is now a sick blue yellow purple. I can't put my rings on either. Any other information or suggestions would be appreciated. Canada

  • I had 3 good sized babies in 4 years. After the birth of my daughter, almost 3 years ago now, I had continuous lower abdominal pain. I have a history of mild IBS so I assumed it had gotten worse. Everyone told me it was just the stress of raising 3 small children that was getting to me. I also noticed increased problems with constipation. Finally after 6 months of this I went to a doctor, who sent me to a GI specialist. By this point I'd lost a good bit of weight from not feeling well, and was also feeling quite tired. A GI workup didn't show anything to pinpoint my particular pain, but we continued in that direction becuase that was assumed to be the nature of my problem. After trying several medications, fibers, and treatments, my GI doctor ordered a CT scan because he could not explain my continuing pain. Something "odd" was found around the area of my ovaries, so he sent me to a GYN. He was concerned about the possibility of ovarian cancer, given that I had many of the "signs" (bloating, pain, weight loss, fatigue, etc) and the "odd" CT scan. He wanted to do laproscopic surgery to rule it out for sure. He also suggested that pelvic congestion could be the problem, and if so, removing my uterus would take care of my pain. At the time I did not understand much about PCS and so agreed. He took my uterus vaginally in Aug 03. I did feel better in the pelvic area and intercourse was no longer painful. However, I continued to have increasingly worse pain up and down my left abdomen, until it literally felt like my kidney was hurting! Pain will also go down my left leg and stop me in my tracks. I was sent back to the GI and then back to the GYN and then eventually made to feel like a crazy person! I wasn't seeking drugs, in fact I refused to take any pain meds until someone could tell me what was wrong with me! I learned more about PCS on the internet and must say that ovarian vein syndrome is a MUCH better name. I found myself a new GYN who would actually listen to me and asked whether that vein could still be the problem with me and he said absolutely YES! He said removing the uterus alone would NOT solve the problem, and that the symptoms I was describing would coincide with the vein problem only having gotten worse. I had a venogram and sure enough the left ovarian vein is huge, all the way up to where it connects to the kidney. I am to have embolization done, but we are not sure if it will work since I've already had my uterus removed, there might not be adequate vessels there for the ovary to reroute its bloodflow. If not, it will have to be removed in more extensive surgery. So my word of advice - don't go to a knife happy doctor! Embolization is the first treatment of choice among experts in this field, so find someone who knows something about this before you go letting a GYN operate on you. And don't let people treat you like a hypochondriac if you are in pain! I have been positively debilatated by this, it is awful some days, and still I was made to feel by some like I was making it up. I hope this condition increases in awareness and SOON - no one should have to suffer as long as I have.

  • Bonjour Mon père est aux soins intensifs depuis le 27 novenbre 2004 Le taux de ces plaquettes sanguines étant très bas les médecins ont décidés de lui administrr de l'heparine. La raison qu'il nous donne pour qu'il ne fasse de flébite et éviter aussi un caillot au cerveau. Mais moi je crois que l'heparine est contre indiqué dans ce cas ci, parce que ces plaquettes sanguine son en moyennne 25/100 Alors si son sang ne coagule pas, je crois qu'il n'y a pas de risque aux fébiltes et caillot ? SVP me répondre MERCI !

  • I have been suffering from this same problem for over 10 years. I have a vessel pop about once a year lately, twice last year. It is very scary b/c no one seems to know what causes this phenomenon. I also have Raynaud's Disease which they think plays a role. Last year they ran a battery of tests and found nothing. My doctor, who specializes in Raynauds, says that I have vascular fragility and that although strange is nothing for me to worry about. I had to have a ring cut off last year b/c the vessel that popped caused my finger to swell so much that I couldn't get the ring off and when I tried to pry it off my finger bled more inside. Just three days ago I had another pop, doing the most mundane things, laundry. I called my primary and talked with her and she said there is nothing more she can think of doing. She says my finger veins are just not ordinary and to live with it. This does not sit right with me so I continue my search for answers which is how I found your post. I have seen over ten physicians and no one can find one thing wrong with me. My husband is a doctor, at a prestigious hospital in NYC and although he keeps reassuring me I am not convinced. It's just so strange. If you need to ta

  • After having two children with in eighteen months, I did not feel good. Even after another year, I was unable to feel like myself again. After two years of tests, medication, trips to my PCP,OBYGN and a Psychiatrist, I was diagnosed with pelvic congestion syndrome. I ended up having a hysterectomy and after this I felt so much better! I did a lot of research on my own. Take your health in to your own hands! PCS is real and painful!!

  • My son currently receives treatment for an AVM on his left foot from Dr. Wayne Yakes Englewood, co. I would be happy to share our experiences with others, if interested. His avm was misdiagnosed. He is currently 16 years old and has had 33 embolizations. He is treated with alcohol embolizations monthly.

  • I had a blood clot in my upper thigh a couple months ago & went into the hospital several days till it was desolved. I have now developed swollen, red, burning lower legs. My legs are actually hot to the touch. My doctor gave me diuretics but they haven't seemed to help. What could be the cause of the fever? Sincerely, Nancy Bradbury

  • I am writing for my cousin Debbie who for the past 20 something years has had bloodclots, so has her brother, and her late father. She was told to have Protein S def. Does anyone out there know what this is or know of a web site. She is in the hospital now with a clot in her arm. She had a filter put in her leg, but there's nothing that can catch them in her upper extrem. She's very concerned about this. Also if you are a christian please keep her in your prayers. Thanks for any help. Sheila
