Common Circulation Issues Caused by Chronic Venous Insufficiency

Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is a condition that involves veins that have become damaged or have stopped working as they should. It causes the blood that travels down to the legs to struggle to return to the heart and can even cause blood to pool in the legs. This is a condition that causes circulation issues in the legs and may create complications for the rest of the body if left untreated. To learn more about why chronic venous insufficiency should be considered something you should be aware of, keep reading below. 

Why is chronic venous insufficiency considered a major circulation issue you should be aware of? 

  • It can be painful — Chronic venous insufficiency can often be a source of discomfort and pain for those who have it. The symptoms of CVI can include tightness, heaviness, dryness of the skin and skin ulceration, to name a few. These symptoms can make living with CVI very uncomfortable and will likely only worsen in severity unless they get treated by a vein and vascular specialist. 
  • It can limit your mobility — Another major reason to be aware of the circulation issues that CVI can lead to is that it can limit your mobility. Poor circulation can lead to issues with everyday activities like standing and walking. It’s important to get ahead of your CVI symptoms so that you can move around as much as you want to with minimal limitations.
