You know that you need to visit a vein specialist if you have varicose veins or spider veins. But what causes these vein conditions in the first place? Both varicose veins and spider veins form as a result of a deeper underlying vein condition, called chronic venous insufficiency.
Chronic venous insufficiency (CVS) is a condition that affects the large veins of the leg, called the saphenous veins. These veins need to transport blood from the legs all the way to the heart, against gravity. To help them with this process, the veins have tiny, one-way doors in them, called valves. When blood flows upwards past the valves, they shut tightly, so that blood cannot go back to the legs.
In CVS, these valves malfunction, which means they fail to close completely. This allows small amounts of blood to trickle back down into the legs. Over time, this causes the blood pressure in the leg veins to increase. The excess pressure causes smaller veins to distort, and their walls expand, giving the classic appearance of varicose veins. It also forces the formation of tiny damaged veins that appear as purplish or bluish streaks beneath the skin, called spider veins.
Do you really need to get those varicose veins or spider veins fixed?
There are times when you really have no choice but to get your varicose veins treated – they may be causing you pain, and you may not be able to sleep without the discomfort of your throbbing leg veins. But what if they do not bother you at all? According to the experts, it is still a good idea to get your visible veins checked out by a reputed vein specialist – they will be able to tell you for sure whether or not you have venous insufficiency. If you do have CVS and varicose veins, you can develop some very nasty complications, like the following:
- Painful symptoms: Even if you do not have pain at the moment, chances are that you will eventually. Over time, the increased pressure in the leg veins can cause severe throbbing pain. Your feet become heavy and swollen, and you may be disturbed from sleep with painful leg cramps.
- Poor nutrition to your skin: Best case scenario, your skin develops a reddish hue and coarse, leathery consistency. Worst case scenario – if you injure your skin, even if it is a minor scrape, it may not heal adequately, and can develop into painful venous ulcers.
- Medical emergencies: The expanded vein walls become fragile under pressure, so any injury could actually rupture the veins. This can result in profuse bleeding. The stagnated blood can also clot within the veins. If the blood clot travels through the deeper veins to the heart and lungs, it can cause breathlessness and chest pain. Both these are serious medical emergencies for which you would need to visit a hospital’s emergency room at the earliest.
So, if you have visible veins, do not put off that visit to a vein center – have a vein physician look at your legs as soon as possible!
