Venous Disease and Varicose Veins Management

Varicose veins are more dangerous than people tend to think. Blood clots have a higher chance of forming inside your bad varicose veins.
This is very dangerous because blood clots in varicose veins can result in permanent vein damage that can eventually lead to leg ulcers and wounds that do not heal.

The most significant danger with a varicose vein blood clot is that it can travel to your lungs, causing a pulmonary embolism – which can be fatal. The blood clot could also travel towards your brain and cause a stroke which can leave you disabled and can even take your life.

Varicose veins are the purplish or blue enlarged veins you can see bulging out of someone’s leg. Any of the body’s veins can become varicose but varicose veins most often develop in the feet and legs.

Varicose veins appear in the lower legs most often because walking and standing raises the pressure in the veins of the lower part of the body. This increased pressure puts more stress on the vein walls in your legs, causing them to expand and become varicose.

Symptoms of varicose veins vary from person to person. The majority of people who have varicose veins on their legs feel these symptoms:
  • Achiness or a heaviness in the legs
  • Burning and throbbing in the legs
  • Leg muscle cramps
  • Swelling in the lower legs
  • Itching around the veins
