While you may suffer from varicose veins and spider veins, you may not always know how and why they first appeared on your body or even how to get rid of them. If you suffer from veins, you are not alone. Millions of people around the world will notice veins appear on their body at some point in their life. The root cause of varicose veins and spider veins is Vein Disease, which causes a venous insufficiency in your body. While veins begin as a cosmetic concern, they can quickly turn into more than just that and actually become a medical concern, putting your health at risk. To learn more about this disease, read “What is Vein Disease?” on the VenaCure website.
Common symptoms of Vein Disease, beyond the obvious physical appearance, include but are not limited to:
- Pain or cramping
- Burning or tingling sensations
- Tender around the area of the vein
In addition, if you decide not to receive immediate treatment from a vein doctor, your symptoms could worsen and become more painful and serious resulting in complications such as: inflammation, blood clots, ankle sores, skin ulcers, and bleeding.
There are several different options available to those who suffer from varicose and spider veins to either treat already existing veins or to prevent veins from appearing in the future. The first step you can take to ensure great health overall is to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. Exercise and maintaining a healthy weight will far extend their benefits in preventing varicose and spider veins from appearing on your legs and feet due to the constant blood flow of healthy blood you are providing your body. Also, be sure to take care of your legs and feet by wearing comfortable clothes and shoes that are not too restrictive, pampering with relaxation, movement and massages. Lastly, you can resort to wearing compression stockings if you know you are indeed prone to veins.
