Have you tried homeopathy?

I had painful varicose veins for several years. I had to wear compression socks, but they continued to get worse. Then I started working with a homeopath for another problem. After six months, I noticed that I was no longer wearing my compression socks and no longer had any pain in my legs. The swelling of the veins receded. Several other problems, like pain in my thumb joints, forgetfulness and insomnia also gradually got better. A good homeopath prescribes just one remedy at a time based on your overall personality and symptoms. Worth a try.
