Varicose Vein Disease

Vein disease encompasses a range of conditions that affect the veins, particularly in the legs. One of the most common forms of vein disease is varicose veins. Recognizing the signs of varicose veins early on is crucial in preventing further complications and managing the condition effectively. Watch out for these symptoms, and give us a call if you see signs of these ailments.

Visible Veins

Varicose veins often appear as twisted, bulging, or rope-like veins on the surface of the skin. These veins may be blue, purple, or red in color.

Leg Pain and Heaviness

Many individuals with varicose veins experience aching, throbbing, or a sense of heaviness in the legs, especially after prolonged standing or sitting.

Swelling and Edema

Vein disease can cause fluid retention, leading to swelling in the ankles and lower legs.

Skin Changes

Over time, varicose veins may lead to skin discoloration, dryness, or itchiness in the affected area.

Leg Cramps and Restlessness

Some people with vein disease may experience leg cramps or a sensation of restlessness, particularly at night.
