At home remedies for pain in legs?

I had large veins done and also spider veins with 3 or 4 treatments about 1 year ago. Now I am having sharp pains in the veins in my legs everyday. My legs are still very tender. Any at home remedy for this, no money left.

You should first determine that the pain is actually from your veins. You can visit your doctor for an ultrasound examination. After that try wearing your compression hose during the day to see if that gives you relief along with a course of anti-inflammatory medication (ibuprofen, asprin, aleve etc). It is unlikely to be related to the sclerotherapy after all this time.
In our practice, I usually remover larger veins through cosmetic punctures rather than doing sclerotherapy. Once out, they are gone. Sclerotherapy on larger veins can be unsuccessful.

Unfortunately there are no home remedies. You need to be evaluated by your vein specialist and you may need a venous ultrasound to rule out andy superficial or deep phlebitis.

The best home remedy is maintenance of normal body weight, periodic elevtion of the legs higher than the heart, avoidance of prolonged sitting or standing, and routine daily use of elastic support hose.

No. You need to be evaluated (ultrasound) to see what is causing the pain. Thanks

I am afraid there are no home remedies. The best you can do at home will be to use compression stockings daily, exercise at least 30min everyday and elevate the legs when possible.
