I've just been told that I have the on-set of varicose veins, does anyone know of a cure, or something that will help?

venestat which can be bought at some grocery stores such as Kroger works.  it helps with the tired achiness and is horse chestnut seed Extract  containing 'Escin'.  "Helps relieve achy, tired, swollen legs.  Promoes Leg circulation.  Clinically proven safe & effective."

i used it for a couple of months and i finally had a period after 10 years of nothing. i think it helps with microcirculation.

I've had varicose veins since I was 14.  At the time the doctors were not willing to do anything.  I'm now 29 and suffering.  I've had an op few days ago to have the veins removed.  On my left leg the veins were stripped out and my right leg the veins were burnt by a laser....so far i'm on crutches and wearing surgical stockings....I'm hoping for a quick recovery
