Nearly 30 million Americans live with vein disease. It is common, chronic, hereditary and can be life altering. A normal, healthy vein has valves that keep blood flowing in the correct direction – from the feet back to the heart. Vein disease occurs when either (or both) the valves or vein walls weaken, stretch or become damaged. Blood can flow backward, causing “venous reflux.” Venous reflux can increase pressure in the veins, causing more stretching, twisting and swelling. This process leads to a variety of vein disease symptoms, including:
- Ankle and leg swelling
- Throbbing in the legs
- Fatigued legs
- Restless legs (especially at night)
- Cramps (including night cramps)
- Itching and/or burning
- Skin pigmentation or discoloration
- Skin thickening or hardening
The good news is that vein disease is treatable and most therapies can be completed in the time it takes to have lunch. “Vein and vascular disease affects everyone differently.
