Understanding Varicose Vein Disease Symptoms

An estimated 25 million Americans suffer from varicose veins, and this figure is probably low. By the time we reach our 60s, it is estimated that 72 percent of women and 42 percent of men will experience vein problems.

Do Not Ignore the Symptoms of Leg Varicose Veins

Most recognize varicose veins as the bulging, rope-like veins seen in the legs, but vein problems may present themselves with other, more subtle signs and symptoms:

  • Aching or burning sensation
  • Itching around the bulging vein or in the ankle area
  • Uncomfortable cramps in the legs
  • Heavy, fatigued feelings in the legs by the end of the day
Do Not Ignore the Symptoms of Leg Varicose Veins
Vein care is all we do. Our team has the specialized experience to catch your vein disease symptoms early, before serious damage happens.

Symptoms usually are not present in the morning but increase as the day goes on. If left untreated, varicose veins can progress to skin changes. It’s important to recognize the often-subtle symptoms before skin changes and later progression to ulcer (ulcer).

"Both of my legs really hurt when I first arrived at the vein clinic."

— Judith Jacobs

We use this information to establish a personalized treatment plan for you. A plan is essential to ensure that you obtain proper therapy to restore leg health. We never pursue a one-size-fits-all treatment regimen that may ignore your special concerns or problems.
