Varicose veins

Statistics show that almost half of US population suffers from varicose veins. Most of these people are more than the age of 50. So what are varicose veins and how is this linked to fibromyalgia?

What Causes Varicose Veins

The chambers and muscles of your heart act like pumps, which pushes blood into your arteries. Moreover, the valves in your veins control the flow of blood that goes into the body and into your heart.  If these valves do not function properly, blood gets pooled into the veins. When this happens, they get engorged and eventually become swollen.

    Your information on the medical marijuana you have published is incomplete. Fibromyalgia patients should never ever use sativa cannabis. If you really want to use marijuana to replace your drugs that the doctor give you, Indica marijuana with 23% THC. You will not get a mental High. This strain will give you relief from your pain and help you to sleep and to function better during the day.
