Studies show that an estimated 70 million U.S. citizens will experience some type of venous disorder in their lifetime. But when it comes to varicose veins and other vascular issues, you may not even know you have a condition until symptoms manifest. Conditions like varicose veins are unsightly at best and bad for your health at worst. They can cause problems that affect your day-to-day life, like swelling, pain, and even fatigue. In extreme cases, varicose veins and other vascular problems are precursors to more severe health problems like blood clots.
If you’ve noticed large, bulging veins that are visible on the surface of your skin that look enlarged and blue, an in-office procedure from Denville Medical may be in your best interest.
What Causes Varicose Veins?
Conditions like these are most often the result of one-way valve malfunction in one or more of your veins. When working properly, one-way valves keep your blood flowing in the correct direction. When these valves are not functioning correctly, your blood can actually flow backward, which causes it to pool in the branches of your veins. This condition is referred to as venous insufficiency and is the culprit behind vein problems like varicose and spider veins.
Your body’s response to blood backflow (also called reflux) is to enlarge the affected vein so that it can accommodate the influx of blood and lower venous pressure. When this happens, secondary veins often develop, which appear large and sometimes blue. These secondary veins are what we call varicose veins.
What are the Symptoms of Varicose Veins?
There is a wide range of symptoms common with varicose veins, including the following:
- Restless Legs
- Twisted Veins
- Skin Discoloration
- Swollen Ankles
- General Leg Pain
Fortunately, treatment options from Denville Medical can diminish swelling, alleviate your leg discomfort, eliminate cosmetic concerns, and improve your overall well-being.
