Signs of venous disease include aching, swelling, restless leg syndrome, cramping especially at night, a feeling of heaviness, fullness or itching of the legs. You may begin to notice spider veins and larger varicose veins forming or see vessels beginning to form around your ankles. Even if you do not have visible veins, you may have vein disease, if you present with any of the above symptoms. Signs of advanced disease include: ankle skin color changes and/or leg ulcers. You can thank genetics for the predisposition in developing faulty vessels and refluxing valves inside the veins. Pregnancy or an injury to your legs are other causes of veins. Venous disease is a progressive disorder and will continue to worsen if not treated. Contact a vein specialist today!
