Venous Disease Symptoms

Vein disease and varicose veins are problems that affect a large portion of the population. It is estimated that about 40% of the population in the U.S. has venous disease. Vein diseases occur the most often in women and in individuals over age 50. Vein disease can lead to other more serious problems, which is why it is important to have vein screenings to monitor the health of your veins. Summit Skin & Vein Care provides free vein screenings to check for vein disease in the Lee’s Summit and Kansas City area.

Symptoms of Varicose Veins & Venous Disease

  • Aching, throbbing, or tired feeling in the legs
  • Restless leg syndrome
  • Leg cramps
  • Rashes and itching on the skin
  • Poor wound healing and open sores
  • Discoloration of the skin

You may not realize that you have venous insufficiency when the typical bulging varicose veins are not visible. However, all of the above symptoms can be an indication of vein disease. This can lead to further complications if left untreated. While healthy veins have a closed valve that only allows blood flow in one direction, varicose veins allow the blood to flow in both directions. This eventually leads to visible swelling of the veins, as well as the other symptoms listed above.
