Have one quite swollen vein by knee surrounded by patch of broken veins. Keep getting a rush of warmness to that area...

Should I be worred. 6 months pregnant and flying to Spain at 30 weeks so don't really want to discuss with Doc incase they say I can't fly......

It feels like one of those warming face packs.

You should really get it checked out by a doctor. Swelling and warmth can be signs of thrombosis, which is serious. Please get it checked.

If it's nothing serious, then there's no reason why you shouldn't fly, as long as you take precautions against thrombosis.

I would defo get it checked out. One of the possible signs of dvt is a warm patch on the leg, and with you having vv I guess you are at a higher risk of it.

Sorry, but I really do think you should go to the gp.

please get it checked

as PPs have said it could be a DVT which is potentially serious

if you are clear you should be able to fly
