painful veins around ankleI have been using my bicycle as my only mode of transport for two weeks. I probably only travel a few miles each day.
I have felt sore around both ankles, but primarily the right ankle for nearly that long, but thought it was just muscle ache from the exercise. However, yesterday I noticed I had a blueberry-sized hematoma on my left shin (raised). After an hour or so it was no longer raised but spread out into a bruise about 1' in diameter. Then I started noticing I have various areas of broken veins around both shins (these are new) and enlarged, thick veins sticking up around my inside right ankle.
I have always had poor circulation (spider veins on thighs and upper calves, around knee) and am a bit worried about this. I hope this is not the start of varicose veins. My ankles have a dull, achy feeling. I thought cycling and walking was supposed to be good for these kinds of conditions; why would they be aggravated by cycling?
I am 40, about 10 pounds overweight, I sleep well, have a good diet of no processed foods and feel pretty healthy and energetic. I stay at home with our 2 year-old son, so I keep pretty busy. No depression or anything like that, but I can be a worry-wart. My only nagging health issue seems to be sinus headaches and allergies when the weather changes.
Can anyone recommend a remedy/dosage for me?
