When should you need to visit a vein center? A leading vein doctor lists out the signs of vein disease.

Varicose vein treatment in Manhattan: What are the symptoms of vein disease, and when should I visit a vein center near me?

 Vein disease statistics in Americans are staggeringly high – almost one in every two Americans has a vein condition. It is surprising, then, that vein clinics are not packed with people waiting to get treated. How exactly are you supposed to know if you have vein disease? Well, the following four signs and symptoms are a good indicator that you have vein disease:

  • Pain: It becomes more frequent as we age, and doesn’t always go away… most of us actually adapt to living with pain in the legs. But pain due to vein disease is definitely curable! Do you have throbbing pain that runs all along the length of your leg? Does it get worse after sitting or standing for long periods? Or at the end of a long day? Does it feel better if you put your feet up for a while? If your answer is yes, then you definitely have a vein problem!
  • Swollen legs and ankles: At the end of the day, or after you have been on your feet for a long time, your ankles swell up and your feet can feel heavy. As with pain, the swelling goes down when you have had the chance to put your feet up for a while.
  • Leg cramps: Sudden, painful leg cramps are a strong indicator of vein disease. Often, these cramps can be severe enough to wake you up at night. Moving your legs quickly makes it feel better – which is why this is referred to as ‘restless legs’.
  • Visible veins: This is the most common sign of vein disease. Varicose veins, the thick, bulging, knotted masses that appear on your legs and thighs, are the most common reason that people visit a varicose vein treatment center. However, smaller veins – called spider veins, may go unnoticed. Spider veins are tiny, bluish or purplish streaks on your legs. They appear to interlace like a spider’s web. Unless you are fair-skinned, you may not even know they exist if you don’t look too close. But spider veins, particularly if they are present on the inner side of your ankle, can represent advanced vein disease.

Varicose vein Treatment NYC: Why do I need to visit a vein treatment center at all?

Even if you do have the above symptoms, you might not want to visit a varicose and spider vein treatment clinic. Chances are that simple exercise and rest can help ease the pain and swelling – but the underlying cause will not go away.

Varicose veins and spider veins are not just about appearance and uncomfortable symptoms – they are part of a vein condition which can have serious consequences if left untreated. Chronic Venous Insufficiency is a vein condition that affects the main, superficial veins of your leg. The job of these veins is to get blood from your legs back to your heart. In CVS, the veins do not do their job, and impure blood collects in the leg veins, expanding the walls and increasing the vein pressure. The excess pressure is what forces varicose and spider veins to form. The impure blood breaks down and releases substances that cause cramping. It also blocks proper nutrients from reaching the skin. So if you put off visiting a varicose vein treatment center near you, here is what could happen:

  • Your symptoms get worse. Exercises and rest may not offer enough relief anymore.
  • Minor skin scrapes and abrasions don’t heal well, and can even transform into ugly and painful vein ulcers.
  • Your expanded varicose vein could rupture, which could cause you to lose a lot of blood.
  • The impure blood in your veins can clot. If the clot breaks off and travels to the heart and lungs, it can cause chest pain, breathlessness, and can even be fatal.
