*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum

Default Varicose Veins on the Right Leg ? ?


First off I am almost 70 and have been skating a long time. Going skating in a little bit at our local Rink. Hopefully some of my younger buddies will be there. You know the 20's and early 40s skaters. Too early to catch some of the older guys if they will come later.

In some literature they say that hard exercise will create varicose veins. My wife noticed it on a biker (the premier race) and thought his leg looked like mine. SO I am using compression socks lately on that one leg the Right Pushing and hard working leg for Rink Skating.

Experiences and Knowledge is My Question

Yours in Skating, MA/NY Skating Dave
P.S. Thanks in advance, yet I am bad lately on reading SLForum
P.S.-2 Please no one send me a private message. My box is full

I have them in both but worse in my left. They don't bother me just not pretty to look at lol. Occasionally I get some pooling at the end of the day in left ankle but if I prop it up it eventually goes about its business. 55 here, or will be in about 24 days, and I love working those young chumps over lol.

Well, I only skate outdoors, and I rather look forward to cooler temps in the fall, as it drops into the mid 60ís I start to wear CDX compression bottoms, tightening the hips and upper legs with compression clothing is wonderful, they offer insulated pairs, I have a few for snowboarding, and thinner pairs for not too cold weather,
as I love to road bike summers, I see compression socks worn by serious riders and some recovering from injuries, neoprene, tight, havenít tried any, heat is my problem, real compression socks

I donít wear gloves on a bike because my hands are so wet the gloves become useless, but,
Dave, a pair of the thicker neoprene socks unless you already have them sound like what you want, the CDX come in a version that stops just below the knee (for skiers) combine the two, and drink more water eat less sugar.

I wear them too. Tried the thick pair skating. Hated it. Lost all kinda feel for the skate. Haven’t tred the thin ones in skates. But I wear them other days.

You can improve circulation and vein/artery wall health with Nitric Oxide. Nicric Oxide is made in the body from Arginine. Arginine is present in watermelon, and a few other foods, and is available in a supplement.

I have been taking it for 3 years now. Prior to that, I was on blood thinners due to blood clots. I never liked taking the thinners, and I was always told, for all my life, that I had small veins, and doctors always had trouble taking my blood. Arginine/Nitric Oxide widens all blood vessels and promotes better circulation. Putting two and two together, I got to wondering if my clotting was due to small veins. I was desperate to get off of the thinners, so I stopped taking them and went on the Arginine. It worked. I haven't had any clots, and my energy level went up. (better circulation, better oxygenation, more energy)

Dumping blood thinners. Pretty unheard of. Worked for me, might work for you. I use MRI NO2 Black. Give it a go. See if it works for you.
