To avoid these issues and more, here are just a few of the common symptoms varicose vein sufferers may exhibit:
• Veins that have become especially apparent with either greenish, purple, or blueish tints.
• Veins that have a thick, knotted appearance that bulges beneath the surface of the skin.
• Pain and cramping sensations or a general achiness in the thigh or calf area. An overall heaviness and tiredness in the legs often accompany varicose veins.
• Varicose veins sometimes cause a tingling or burning sensation throughout the legs, sensations which are often mistaken for “Restless Leg Syndrome” instead of a consequence of untreated varicose veins.
• An overall swelling of the legs is generally due to insufficiency with vein function of which varicose veins are frequently the result. Venous insufficiencies are 8 to 10 times more likely to cause swelling in the legs than any other cause.
Addressing varicose veins with one of Michigan’s most experienced vein care specialists is very important as vein symptoms will only become worse if untreated and often varicose vein complications can lead to other more serious ailments if not addressed.
