Dear DOC? Thank you for your service! I am a 42 year old female with serious varicose veins. Cosmetically only, there are no physical disabilities. They BULGE out of my left thigh like the Blue Devil and the right like a close relative. Scares my kids. Hub and I ok with it. Lived with it for 20 years together. I Weigh 103, am a twin with a female phaternal. Both of us and 4 other sibs are short and skinny. I am the only child with v.v. Since age 15. Worked retail and on the feet lots. Insurance agent for 16 years and then began cleaning houses. Love the excercise of my work.???? Developed a twitch in right forefinger 2 years ago.It has spread to the thumb. Daily and at rest.Began to show my 13 year old daughter when we would watch t.v. together. Don't anymore. Show hub. I feel a little weak and shakey in morning until I get to moving around. lower back also weak. My concern, me being the only female who carried on the "veins" with me, from both Mom and Dad, why am I feeling needle pains from my ankles to my shoulders.(Is it more than RLS?) Most bizarre area being the genital area, from the anus to the vaginal area.(not fun) Needles and sharp pins , which make me jump and then my leggs contract and jerk.Shoulders contract and hips are jerking spontaneously, every 30-40 seconds when at rest in afternoon. Started taking Calc. 1 month ago and nutrients as advised by a doc friend. Been getting worse, but not intolerable, yet. I would also include that cleaning houses for a living,I am very active and feel great while moving. Have had a few back strains in the last year, but can't specifically relate these syptoms to any injury. Question to you would be, do I need a neurologist referal from my HMO, or sit tight and wait to see if it is just another old age ailment? Thanks for listening. Sorry for the length of the question.
