People are naturally vigilant about warning signs regarding their health. These concerns include the body’s blood flow and circulation. But what are the warning signs of vascular conditions?
Venous insufficiency may mean that your vascular valves fail to function appropriately. This condition can allow blood to flow backward, called venous reflux, and cause a wide range of symptoms.
If you are aware of pelvic floor therapy, then you may have recently experienced childbirth. Or you may have been experiencing chronic pelvic or lower back pain, and you are seeking alternative treatments for your pain. Don’t worry. Pelvic floor therapy isn’t limited to treating pelvic and back pain.
Emma has had pelvic cramps on and off for seven months. At first, it did not cause any alarm because most of the time, the pain is manageable. She always thought that the pain would eventually disappear because it is common for women to experience pain in their pelvic region during the menstrual cycle.
But as time went on, the cramps became more severe and lasted longer. The dull ache that she experienced even got worse during her period, and her urge to urinate increased. She also noticed large and bulging veins in the near pelvic region.
The pelvic region is one of the most sensitive areas of the body. For this reason, it is one of the worst places to be experiencing pain, and even more so when you are not sure why it is happening. It can be easy for relatives and even physicians to brush it off, but pelvic pain can be a symptom of something more serious.
Even if it is not, chronic pain can disrupt your life. From keeping you from getting your work done to interfering with enjoying time with your family, intense or chronic pain is an unwelcome guest to many, and you deserve to have yours taken seriously.
Many women experience pain and discomfort during their period. More than half of women say that they have pain for at least one day of every month due to menstruation. While painful periods are not uncommon, they are certainly uncomfortable.
There are two types of period pain: primary dysmenorrhea and secondary dysmenorrhea. Primary dysmenorrhea involves pain that usually starts with your very first period. Many women find that their period pain diminishes as they get older. Women who have given birth often find that their pain is less after that.
In this article, we will look at varicose veins forming near the pelvic region. The Center for Vascular Medicine doesn’t recommend a venogram procedure for most cases. We recommend a procedure for a patient who feels that the pelvic pain is unbearable or debilitating. We recommend those with mild symptoms continue monitoring and see if the symptoms progress. If symptoms progress then further action can be taken with the recommendation of your physician.
There are many reasons you might experience groin pain. Usually, groin pain is related to an injury relating to overuse or straining. However, other things can cause groin pain in women.
Some of the more serious causes of female groin pain include appendicitis, ovarian cysts, or even cancer. These are very rare, however. It’s more likely that overuse leading to an injury is causing your groin pain. It may also be caused by something benign like kidney stones or a UTI.
- Elevation – Gravity is not our friend when it comes to leg swelling. If you sit or stand with your legs in a dependent position, then there is a chance your legs will swell. Therefore, you can minimize swelling by elevating the legs. Elevation helps by using gravity to your advantage allowing fluid and blood to return to your heart more effectively. Try to limit the time you sit in one place for extended periods. I like to suggest to my patients to set a timer for 1 hour to remind them to get up and move around.
