    The Causes and Symptoms of Varicose Veins

    Last updated 7 months ago

    Varicose veins are a common cosmetic concern that most frequently affect the legs. In some cases, varicose veins also cause discomfort or pain. If you suffer from varicose veins, there are a variety of non-invasive vein therapy options available to eliminate them and restore your confidence in the appearance of your legs.

    Causes of Varicose Veins

    Varicose veins occur when the one-way valves inside the veins malfunction or wear out. When these valves do not function properly, blood pools inside the vein rather than being transported up the legs to the heart. Pooling blood causes the vein to expand and turn dark red, blue, or purple, forming a varicose vein. In many cases, the valves simply wear out due to age. However, there are other factors that contribute to the formation of varicose veins. Being overweight and minimally-active puts excess strain on your cardiovascular system, affecting the veins and their valves. Pregnancy can also cause the formation of varicose veins. Varicose veins are hereditary, meaning if many members of your family suffer from them, you are more likely to develop varicose veins as well.

    Symptoms of Varicose Veins

    A varicose vein is a thick, swollen, twisted vein visible beneath the skin. Veins may range from red or purple to blue or green in color. Varicose veins may cause discomfort in the legs, such as dull pain, itching, or a burning sensation. Your legs may feel heavy or tired, especially after long periods of sitting or standing. In some cases, varicose veins cause swelling in the feet, ankles, and legs. If you experience any of these symptoms, talk to your doctor about your varicose veins and the possible treatment options.

    At the Central Florida Vein & Vascular Center, we are here to offer solutions that end the embarrassment and pain of varicose veins. Call (407) 293-5944 to schedule an appointment at one of our four locations in Orlando, Ocoee, Kissimmee, or The Villages.
