Varicose Veins

Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are twisted, bulging veins. Though any superficial vein (close to the skin’s surface) may become varicose, the leg veins are most commonly affected. Gravity and the increased pressure on the veins of the lower body from standing are a main cause.

Some people may view varicose veins as only a cosmetic concern, most often when they are not causing problems. Varicose veins may or may not cause pain, depending on the individual. However, varicose veins can cause many symptoms including aching and heaviness and can lead to more serious health problems.



  • Visible, swollen, and twisted veins, often blue or dark purple in color.

  • Aching or heaviness in the legs, especially after standing or sitting for long periods.

  • Throbbing or cramping sensations in the legs.

  • Itching or burning sensations around the affected veins.

  • Swelling, especially in the ankles and feet, particularly towards the end of the day.

  • Skin discoloration or texture changes around the veins.

  • Restless legs or a feeling of discomfort that improves with leg elevation or movement.

  • Ulcers or sores near the ankle, particularly in severe cases.
