I have learned from my Dr that I have Varicose veins in my legs. o.o The root of the problem is waaaay up.... in the groin department. ^^; Now I know why my legs feel hot at the end of work day. Or maybe my recent 6 kg weight gain may have something to do with it... (currently 5"4 ft and 66.3 kg). 

Option 1. Compression stockings from chemist

Option 2. Surgery....?

Best thing to do, deal with the veins ASAP before they lead to further problems... The ultrasound specialist who did a Doppler scan on my legs mentioned there's one deep valve in my left inner thigh has gone strange and blue, plus another hot vein located behind the right knee, among the many other veins that are deep blue under my translucent skin. Both problem area lead higher to the deeper valves in my pelvis (where hip meets thigh, not where my lady parts are XD). The most simple explanation is; blood flows down via blue veins like normal, but a couple of the veins have stopped working and don't push blood back UP to the heart like they should. They can lead to swelling, pain and heat radiating from the lower legs as the day goes on. 

Going to see Dr today to get a referral to see my brother-in-law's sister's husband, who is a vascular surgeon. 

Crossing my fingers that the treatment will be non-invasive.... ^^;

Update:
Doppler scan results say I have no deep vein thrombosis. Phew. Veins are clean. No blood clots. Problem spot was not in my groin. :w00t!: It was more the upper juncture of my leg. There is a "but" involved....

The visible veins showing on the lower limbs of my legs may get more.... unsightly in the future. There was also a concern my ankle skin may get thinner as time passes. My GP says if I did want to have my veins "cleaned up" a little (which I chose to do sometime in the future), there are two possible ways for me to go: "Veanaseal" superglue method (injection into visible veins and they get closed off on the inside), or have them zapped by laser.

Uhhhhh. :o Glue treatment, please. Dr did reassure me that people do get their problem veins glue-treated only have to do it 2 times in 10-15 years. :wow: 

I am wearing knee-length "flight stockings" in the short term for work days (expensive and mother says I have to take care of them) until my Varicose veins get evaluated by my next port-of-call: vein surgeon in the family. :)

According to Myers-Briggs test, I'm the ENTJ type. ;p

I learn best though Visual and Touch.

Fluent in Aussie-English by lupisashes

Date Of Birth // October 18
Eye color // Olive brown
Hair color // Very dark brown
Star Sign // Libra
Chinese Zodiac // Rabbit

Hello there. I'm Relic-Angel. You may call me Rue. :heart:

At 5"4 ft in height and 65 kilograms, I am a sociable, confident and courteous person and a good listener. A quiet achiever with a willingness to learn. I have some surprising skills.

By day, I work as an exhaust fan assembler. The job requires good muscle strength (some fans weigh from 10 kg to 20 kg), fine dexterity with fingers (mostly for wire manipulation) and brain power (since I've been doing it for almost 10 years now, I can remember every procedure by heart).

At night-time I will mostly be on my 17-inch screen Vaio laptop either writing Dewprism/Threads of Fate fan-fiction, poetry or prose.

Another thing I enjoy is watching anime. The very first anime that I watched was Sailor Moon when it aired on Australian TV in the late 90s, when that dreaded Internet phone connection sound was still alive. Photography is another hobby of mine nowadays. Subjects include Still Life, flowers, food or anything that strikes my fancy. ;p

Underneath all these nice things, I do have 3 serious matters to bring up; Autism Spectrum Disorder, a Mild Intellectual Disability, Semantic Pragmatic Disorder.

On the odd occasion I might misinterpret what is being said to me verbally or online (e.g. I might not understand if someone's pulling my leg OR intentionally screwing with my head). So please go easy on me. ^^; My brain kind of short-circuits when its overwhelmed. I do have a sense of humor, however, even though what's surrounding that is a literal and serious shell.

I like...

:bulletblue: Visiting the psychology and astrology sections of libraries
:bulletblue: Searching through bookshops for manga under the comedy/drama/romance genre
:bulletblue: Going to musicals showing at the Princess Theatre and Her Majsty's Theature around Melbourne (like Les Miserables or Rocky Horror for example)
:bulletblue: To travel to other countries (e.g. England, Egypt, Germany or the United States...)
:bulletblue: Playing D in basketball (I was therefore nicknamed 'The Wall' :lmao:)

:aww: You're very welcome. :) It reminded me of my own struggles with fanfic-writing. To see a person so talented in their respective field, it only made me feel gutted and put off. :( That was until I learned that there are also others who see ME as talented. :wow: 

In fact, there's a love scene I did that sent a reader to Nirvana. o.o My friend later admitted that it left him.... mind blown. lol
