I have varicose veins down my legs and would like to know if any of the following could cause this.

-Iron or Zinc supplements
-Vitamin E supplement
-Mirelle (I was on Diane)
-Biomax protein and carb meal replacement shake and contains taurine, glutamine peptides, probiotics and digestive enzyme.

My leg throbs and is painful on the side on the knee. How can I have this fixed? If my pill is the problem, what should I take in its place. Which pill wont do this?

Mandy, I doubt that it is any of the things on your list. The best would be to see a surgeon and have it sorted out. Good luck.
