Varicose veins are enlarged and contorted veins. They can present in almost every region of the body, but they most commonly occur on the backs of legs. The presence of varicose veins can often be more than just a cosmetic problem. They can cause serious discomfort and even lead to more issues in some cases.
It’s important to note that having varicose veins is a progressive condition. Your symptoms may be early stage now, but they will likely progress into more serious symptoms, so it’s important that you seek out the right care to manage your symptoms.
What are some symptoms of early-stage varicose veins?
There are symptoms that present themselves in the later stage, but if you haven’t yet been diagnosed with late-stage varicose veins, here are some symptoms of early-stage varicose veins.
- Red spots on the backs of your legs — One common symptom of early-stage varicose veins are red spots on the backs of the legs.
- Soreness in the legs — Another warning sign is soreness or heaviness in the legs. This can take place especially after periods of rest or standing.
- Shine on the legs — A sheen on the legs can sometimes be noticed in those who have early onset varicose veins. If you start seeing a shine on your legs that is abnormal for you, you may want to speak with a vein specialist.
