James, I've always had spider veins. But in the past 2 years they have become exceedingly worse. They have gone down into my ankles all the way into my feet, and down there I also have red design type things. LLMD says that's Bart.
And after much research, I'm also thinking that I've had such bad spider veins my adult life is because I did have a TBI in 1972. Because I have a BIG family and NO ONE else has these!
Suspect TBI in 1972 (date corrected by Mother!) Attacked tonsils, pregnancy (miscarraige), appendix, heart (mitral valve prolapse), hypoglycemia, depression, chronic acute neck and back pain.
Next suspect Mother's Day 2007. Diagnosed w/ Lyme and Bart June 2009. (awaiting more test results)
In treatment for recurrent depression, anxiety, low thyroid.
Bit again 7/1/2009, began Doxy 200 mg /day
