I was hoping that someone would know, or have some advice. I have been walking on the treadmill 7 days a week, 4 miles a day for about 6 months. Recently, within the last 4 weeks, I have been having strange vascular pain, sudden onset, while walking on the treadmill. (Feels like I just got shot with a rubber band) The result, broken blood vessels. Some very small (varicose veins) in the outer thigh, some mid size in the back of my leg just above the knee. Yesterday… three ruptured over the sacrum of my lower spine. The area is not red, not hot… has lots of discomfort and is painful. All of the other areas did the same thing. This is the first break of multiple locations… all the others happened one at a time. I was seen by my MD today, showed her all the areas… and she sent me for a ultrasound to make sure I do not have a blood clot in the leg artery. (I don't) but… no clue as to what is going on.. I want to know, what is happening, so that we can stop it! My am bg has been elevated since my last run of antibiotics for a staff infection in my sinuses, but my diet is ok… and considering all things my bg is within tolerance of t2 controls. My allergies do not allow for pain meds, and that isn't my big issue here… I don't have any idea what to do to prevent this. Have any of you… had anything like this??
