What are Spider Veins and Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins are veins that are twisted and enlarged in the legs, making them on the outside of the skin more visible. Spider veins are known as a mild variation of varicose veins, which tend to create more of a web-like appearance, but are often a symptom of underlying vein disease that progresses over time. At one point in their lives, around 30 percent to 60 percent of adults suffer from some form of varicose veins.
Varicose vein symptoms include:
Dark blue or purple veins which can be seen through the skin
Veins that appear twisted or bulging like they are
Heavy sensations in your legs
Throbbing of the leg, swelling or cramping of muscles
Pain following prolonged sitting or standing
Itchiness around your veins' sides
Discoloration of the skin around the veins
A common health condition caused by weak or damaged vein walls and valves, called venous insufficiency, is varicose veins. Your veins bring it back when your arteries pump blood from your heart to the rest of your tissues, so that it can be recirculated. But unlike arteries, veins can come under strain because they work against gravity constantly, and with high blood pressure they can become more aggravated. This is why all the risk factors for varicose veins are pregnancy, obesity and old age. Because of genetics, some individuals find they are more likely than others to get varicose veins.
When do I need to worry about varicose veins?
Varicose veins are not just cosmetic - since they are a sign of poor leg circulation, they are a medical condition that a board-certified vein specialist should evaluate. If your symptoms affect daily activities, the veins are red, tender when you press them, they bleed easily, or if you experience swelling, heaviness or itchy veins or discoloration of the skin, treatment may be recommended.
Our vein doctors can evaluate and diagnose the severity of your varicose veins, as well as find the best treatment option for your particular case.
Some individuals wonder if varicose veins can be treated at home. Walking, leg elevation, a healthy diet, avoiding long sitting or standing periods and wearing compression stockings can help relieve symptoms of varicose veins and venous insufficiency on a temporary basis, the disease is progressive and worsens over time, so early treatment is often recommended.
