I started to develop varicose veins when I first started teaching at the age of 25. My veins never really hurt, but my feet were very tired. I wish I knew about RejuvaHealth back then! I think I was just trying to avoid the inevitable that I most likely would develop varicose veins as most of the women in my family have them.
I was diagnosed with Dysautonomia when I was 21. When I was first diagnosed it was a challenge for me to just walk around the house. There were times that I needed to crawl on the floor just to get to the bathroom because when I was upright for almost any length of time, I would feel like I was going to pass out. My doctor had recommended that I try compression stockings to help with blood pooling in my legs.
Just after I turned 16 I developed a condition called dysautonomia. One of my (many) symptoms was that of venous insufficiency - the blood would pool in my legs! I began wearing compression hose to help push the blood back up to where it should be. Back in those days I only knew of one style of hose: sheer.
My story started at age 27 when I was pregnant with my 2nd child. At the time I had visible varicose veins and some mild pain. Fast forward 7 years and another pregnancy and unfortunately I have to wear them during all of my waking hours. I was diagnosed with venous insufficiency at the age of 31...I can still wear my compression but yet still feel like all the other Moms.
You can feel the quality in the material as soon as you hold them. Plus some aesthetic benefits are, they smooth you out, they prevent any swelling in your legs, and they are like insurance on getting varicose veins in my legs (as this is something that runs in the women of my family).
