Charley Horse: Causes, Risks and TreatmentsJuly 31, 2018
Are you worried you might suffer from sort of vein disease? If circulatory issues run in your family, then there’s reason to get yourself checked out.
There are a number of common signs and symptoms that point to a number of different vein diseases. Here are a few of them.
The easiest signs to point to vein issues are visual. These are the venous issues you typically associated with cosmetic treatment–such as varicose veins and spider veins.
These either show up as bulging large veins that are blue or purple in color, or as nets of clustered blue and purple veins.
Varicose veins, the large and bulging veins, can be a sign of much deeper circulatory issues as well, while spider veins alone tend to be less worrisome.
Comfort Issues Due to Poor Circulation
A number of comfort issues as well point to Vein Disease. If you have achy, painful, burning, or itchy legs — a number of issues associated with restless leg syndrome, then you might have vein issues.
All of these are signs of poor circulation, which can be helped through use of treatments such as keeping the legs elevated or using compression socks to help improve circulation.
Signs of Serious Vein Disease
If your circulation is poor enough, then you may actually be suffering from issues like wounds that aren’t healing on your legs, or ulcers forming. This a sign that nutrients aren’t making it to the body, because blood isn’t delivering nutrients properly.
While all of these symptoms are worth getting checked out, ulcers on the leg are especially serious and point to severe circulation issues and vein disease.
Overall, there are a number of ways to identify vein disease at different stages.
