      I can't stand for long periods of time. The veins will POP out of my left foot (sometimes both my feet) and will turn purple

      From what I understand estrogen makes it worse so depending on where you are in your cycle will effect it. It’s so hard to find definitive info though so who knows lol

      I find mine to be the worst before and after my period. It was definitely worse though before I started birth control.

      From what I know, hormonal changes can be a trigger, so sometimes going on pills can help, maybe ask your doctor about it.
