Veins are blood vessels that return deoxygenated blood from the outer parts of the body to the heart. When a vein becomes thick, full of twists and turns or enlarged it is called a varicose vein. Varicose veins can occur when the valves in the leg veins become weak or diseased and no longer function properly, causing blood to pool in the legs.
Varicose veins are the most obvious and visual symptoms of vein disease, but you do not have to have visible veins to have vein disease. Other symptoms include aching, throbbing, itchy, numb, burning, cramping, swollen, tired, fatigued or heavy legs, ankles and/or feet, skin discoloration, open sores or ulcers.
