Signs of Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are damaged veins that have become visible underneath the surface of the skin. They are often blue and purple and create intricate webs of spidery veins that may become obvious on the backs of the legs. They can appear in other areas of the body, but the legs are the most common. Some cases of varicose veins are cosmetic, where they cause little issue other than with appearance. Others involve pain and discomfort, and these are the ones that vein and vascular specialists can help you manage the symptoms of. To learn more about what the symptoms of varicose veins typically are, keep reading below. 

If you have varicose veins, what symptoms will you most likely experience? 

  • Burning or throbbing — One of the symptoms of varicose veins is experiencing burning or throbbing near the affected areas with damaged veins. This can quickly become painful and require quick help from a specialist to curb it. 
  • Swollen legs and feet — Another common varicose vein symptom is experiencing swelling in the legs and feet. This is a side effect of poor circulation through the blood vessels but can be appropriately dealt with by a vein and vascular expert. 
  • Heaviness in the legs — Many people also report experiencing a sensation of heaviness in their legs. This symptom may not be painful but can be a source of significant discomfort.
