About Varicose Veins - Marbella Veins

Varicose veins are swollen, gnarled veins occurring most frequently in the lower limbs and more commonly in the superficial veins of the legs, which are under high pressure when standing. They are produced by a condition called Venous Insufficiency, in which the blood circulating around the lower limbs is not able to return to the heart due to the valves in the veins being damaged. The blood then pools in the distended veins which become varicose. Not only are varicose veins an unsightly cosmetic concern, they can also cause the patient pain especially when walking or standing. They can often feel itchy and scratching them can cause ulcers. Swollen ankles or calves are also possible. However, serious complications are rare. Varicose Veins never go away without treatment. They frequently progress and worsen over time.

Patients with lower extremity vein disease can have a variety of symptoms, some of which may not be typical of varicose veins. Additionally, these symptoms may be present even if patients have no visual evidence of varicose veins. Some typical findings associated with varicose veins may include swelling in legs, discoloration around the ankles, or leg ulcers. Other not so typical symptoms include heavy, tired, restless or achy feelings in legs. Some may have fatigue and tightness in calves. Others may have sensations of burning or itching.

Who gets Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins can occur in people of any age and gender, however, women are much more prone (especially those who have had children), along with those who have a family history of varicose veins or people who spend a great deal of time standing.
