- Posted on: Mar 18 2013
Varicose veins can happen to just about anyone at any age. Please review this list of the top 12 warning symptoms of varicose veins…
Do you experience any of the following?
__ Leg pain, aching or cramping?
__ Burning or itching of the skin?
__ Leg or ankle swelling?
__ “Heavy” feeling in the legs?
__ Skin discoloration or texture changes?
__ Restless legs?
__ Open wounds or sores?
__ Has anyone in your family been diagnosed with vein disease?
__ Have you recently been pregnant?
__ Do your legs feel achy after prolonged periods of sitting or standing?
__ Have you tried other methods of treatment (i.e. laser treatments, sclerotherapy, vein stripping, compression stockings, or anti-inflammatory medications) with little or no symptom relief or do symptoms reoccur?
In addition, do you realize that varicose veins are a progressive vascular disease?
__ Do you know that they’re a sign of venous insufficiency and not just a cosmetic problem?
__ Do you know that by age 60, 70% of women and 40% of men will suffer from this condition?
__ Are you aware that left untreated, varicose veins can lead to a chronic, debilitating condition?
__ Do you know that 80-90% of chronic leg ulcers are due to venous disease rather than arterial disease?
