I have been diagnosed with Sjogrens, Raynauds and radiculopathy?
I have been diagnosed with Sjogrens, Raynauds and radiculopathy. I’ve had epidural and facet injections in my L4, L5 and S1. I recently had a ultrasound that showed I had two superficial veins that needed to be closed. One near my right groin area and one in the the back of my right calf. It is only in my right leg. My body is inflamed and I feel that I have some other disease not yet diagnosed. I tried to get a second opinion from a vascular surgeon but where I live they want a referral. However my insurance does not require a referral. Should I get a second option or have the procedure done on my vein? What type of doctor should I see?
