foot pressure

having my 4th laser surgery on both legs again for varicose veins in 2 weeks. I keep getting new veins on a regular basis and have tons of foot pressure.I cannot stand in one spot for too long and only have relief when I move. Can anyone relate?

Hi, I have leg vein stripping in both legs from top to ankle nearly. Apparently all the suphaneous vein cannot be taken because of nerve damage. My feet are still a problem, pressure in my feet is mainly a problem at night and sometimes pressure in calves as well. Warm weather makes it worse. It is hard to explain this to others having pain in your legs is not well known. I hope yours improve over time. Ruth

    A week ago I had another attack of atrial fib that lasted for 5 hours, went to hospital. I had an ablation done 8 months ago, and I continued to have a-fib episodes but far less then before the ablation. I have SOB,chest tightness with pain in back, and weakness, but the biggest problem is left sided headaches with confusion. I can't seem to deal with the simplest task. Does any one out there...
