Woman's legs

Often times unsightly veins are considered a cosmetic issue and nothing more. This isn’t always the case, however, and can often be a sign of a more serious underlying issue that should be addressed. The cause of vein disorders is the result of improper blood flow through the vein and back to the heart. When this happens, the blood begins to pool in that vein causing it to swell, which in turn leads to discoloration and discomfort. Larger veins become varicose veins while smaller veins are known as spider veins. Because most Veins lie deep below the skin’s surface, not all vein disorders are visible to the naked eye. This is why it is so important to see a doctor if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Leg aching
  • Heaviness
  • Muscle cramping
  • Leg fatigue
  • Restless Legs Syndrome
  • Ankle swelling
  • Itching and burning
  • Skin discoloration
  • Ulcers of the skin
  • Eczema to the lower legs
  • Phlebitis
