Varicose veins or the varicose veins are white blood cells that can develop on the upper surface of the body. Most of us never experience a varicose vein. Many people, especially those of us with diabetes, are prone to having these veins that don't get inflamed. This is why a varicose vein can be a problem. This is a picture of my varicose vein. This varicose vein is in my arm. I have a blood glucose level of 9.2 (8.6 if I'm diabetic), so this makes me have a lot of blood flow through the veins. The veins are very thin and look as if they're made of jelly. This is why they can feel a lot like a "vein" at first. There are times when you can have an attack, and it doesn't seem to be caused by your blood glucose. It's like you have something stuck inside your veins. If you cut or puncture your veins, they're very likely to feel it.
I see lots of patients with varicose veins. Sometimes I have to insert a tube down the sides of the vein to drain the fluid and treat it. This is why I recommend using an ice pack or cold pack (like I use for varicose veins) while you have an attack.
