Venous insufficiencies range in levels of severity from minor cosmetic issues, such as spider veins, to more serious issues, such as varicose veins. Varicose veins occur when the veins and venous valves weaken or fail, resulting in a struggle to push the blood upward through the veins and back to heart. Instead, the deoxygenated blood is allowed to flow backward, creating excess pressure and pooling in the stretched veins.
While many people treat the twisted cords of veins bulging and swelling above the surface of their skin for cosmetic reasons, it is also essential that they be treated for health purposes. Left untreated, varicose veins can lead to dangerous conditions, such as ulcers, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
In order to prevent the disease from progressing, it is essential that you visit with a vein doctor at the first signs of venous insufficiency. The following are a list of common symptoms associated with varicose veins:
