Mild varicose disease is uncomfortable and cosmetically unpleasant, usually resulting in minor aches and pains. More severe vein disease can cause swelling of the legs, discoloration of the skin, leg fatigue, cramping, restlessness, pain, and ulceration.
“Varicose veins are gnarled, enlarged veins. Any vein may become varicose, but the veins most commonly affected are those in your legs and feet. That’s because standing and walking upright increases the pressure in the veins of your lower body.
For many people, varicose veins and spider veins — a common, mild variation of varicose veins — are simply a cosmetic concern. For other people, varicose veins can cause aching pain and discomfort. Sometimes varicose veins lead to more serious problems.
Varicose veins may also signal a higher risk of other circulatory problems. Treatment may involve self-care measures or procedures by your doctor to close or remove veins.” MAYO CLINIC
