What are the classic symptoms of vein disease?

The obvious visual symptoms of vein disease are bulging, ropey or rope-like varicose veins and spider veins. But you do not have to have visible varicose veins or spider veins to have vein disease. Other less noticeable signs include:

  • History of vein problems in your blood-related family
  • Fatigued, tired, heavy-feeling legs
  • Leg pain caused by prolonged standing or sitting
  • Itching, tingling, numbness, cramping or burning in the legs or feet
  • Swollen ankles at the end of the day
  • Discoloration of the skin in the lower legs
  • Open sores or ulcers of the lower legs and ankles
  • Cramps that wake you up at night or a diagnosis of Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)

The symptoms of vein disease may be gradual or rapid in onset, and in most cases there is a family history of vein problems. If you have any ONE of these symptoms you may have vein disease and need to schedule an appointment at The Vein Guys™ for an insurance or Medicare covered consultation and evaluation.
