Spider Veins (Telangiectasia)
Spider veins are small, fine veins that are highly visible through the skin. They are usually red, blue, green, or purple in color. While aesthetically unpleasant, they are not usually dangerous as they are non-functional.
Varicose veins are enlarged, appearing bulgy and stringy. In some cases, varicose veins can be visible through the surface of the skin. Some risk factors for varicose veins are family history, pregnancy, obesity, and standing for long periods of time. Usually, varicose veins are an aesthetic concern, but there are some instances in which they may cause discomfort.
Leg Pain, Aching, or Heaviness
One of the most common symptoms of varicose veins are dull, heavy aches in the legs. They can be described as a general tiredness or heaviness in the legs. It can be difficult to distinct this feeling with a sign of venous disease. However, these sensations tend to worsen after dark or after extended periods of standing.
Skin discoloration is usually seen in more severe stages of venous disease. Discoloration in the skin is often caused by poor blood circulation and increased pressure within the walls of the vein.
Itching, Red Rash, or Flaking Skin (Dermatitis)
These sensations can be indications of venous disease. In some cases, itching, red rash, or flaking skin are followed up by burning sensations, pulsating in the afflicted area, and numbed skin.
Leg Swelling (Lymphedema)
One of the most common signs of venous disease is swelling in the lower legs. Swelling is often an indication that the veins are not functioning properly and causing a buildup of fluid. Lymphedema may also cause skin discoloration or discomfort in the lower limbs of the leg.
Leg cramping is a very common symptom of venous disease. Leg cramping is often a sign that the veins are not functioning properly. The accumulated venous fluids can lead to leg cramping.
Ankle Sores (Leg Ulcers)
Leg ulcers are among the most critical signs of venous disease. Inadequate circulation and severe accumulation of vascular fluids in the lower limbs can result in leg ulcers.
Blood clots are usually caused when leg veins become inflamed. Generally found in the larger veins, blood clots, while rare, can be very dangerous. If you are concerned that you may have blood clots, schedule your consultation at your earliest convenience.
Restless Leg Syndrome
Those who experience restless leg syndrome describe it as the urge to constantly move their legs. Symptoms of restless leg syndrome often enhance at night.
