Vicious veins pains deep inside the body??? Help

Discussion in 'Pain and Inflammation' started by Quirky, Jun 18, 2011.

    For a few years now, I have been deep veins pains all over the body. During the last few weeks this is increasing. Its brutal. The veins pains are deep inside, all over, sometimes, in the neck, eyes, head, heart etc..

    I know its vein pains, because I had varicose veins since an early age. Both legs were stripped in 1990. The pain is typical. Veins are showing on back, hips, legs. There are problems with the right groin artery, and what feels like arterial spasms in both feet.

    I read somewhere that its possible for foods to leak in veins? If I remember correcty, it may have been an article titled "Liver of the matter" by Gary Null.

    Anyone else suffers from this, or knows what these horrid pains could be?:rolleyes:

    Welcome to the forum, Quirky.

    I often have a throbbing pain in my leg veins, although they clearly aren't varicose veins. I've wondered if it isn't related to low blood volume, because when I use sports drinks to increase my blood pressure and volume, the pain lessens.

    Thanks for the replies. I think I may have solve the riddle, well, hum, half way there. I read this article which may explain the symptoms. It may well be that since I am eating fresh ginger daily for its various chemical compounds, those veins pains worsened. There may be a strong connection. Here is an excellent article which explains clearly vascular events associated with foods, and other external factors such as pollution, MCS, etc... http://www.aehf.com/articles/A50a.htm

    Thanks for the interesting info. I still have problems sometimes with painful blood draws where the blood just doesn't want to come out and IV insertion is painful despite "drowning" myself in water prior. I'm looking for the reason. I haven't noticed any connection between these painful draws and my OI so my OI isn't any better or worse when this is happening. Eating raw garlic may be helping but I've just started looking at this.


    The problem with this solution is that I'm intolerant to most chemicals on EARTH. While avoiding food intolerances has helped tremendously, it's not enough. It was interesting to see how chemicals affect our bodies so I'll be more careful with those.

    What I didn't see in this article (of course I could've missed it ... lol ) was reference to thick blood which can be caused by fungus, bacteria, etc ...


    This info on how GSE can help veins was interesting ...


    And I didn't see caffeine mentioned here either and it constricts blood vessels ... I have an article on this site about caffeine if you're interested ...

    Again .. thanks ... xchocoholic (forever now ... )

    There are two issues, one is the deep veins deep pain. This stopped when I stopped eating fresh home made
    ginger paste, and the other issue is a different type of deep vein pain and arteries/valves, and spasms to those. The mechanism may
    be different. The pains and sensations are different. I haven't found much on what is causing this degeneration...

    I can't tolerate garlic, and many other foods, compounds seem to exacerbate liver, allergies, and inability to metabolize.
    This is improved a little.

    What type of reactions you have to compounds in foods? Which foods? Are they allergies? Inability to metabolize,
    provoking weird nasty symptoms? Feeling as if being poisoned/toxic??

    Would be ineresting to compare notes..
