The symptoms of varicose veins will vary among patients, and physical effects beyond the aesthetic may include skin rash and discoloration, soreness, heaviness in the legs, and fatigue. When these symptoms are accompanied by other signs like those listed below, you should schedule an appointment with a vein specialist, as you may be at risk for significant health issues.
Open sores or wounds on the skin often develop when the perforating veins that connect the superficial and deep veins fail.
If the backflow of blood causes the legs to become exceptionally swollen, simple movements such as walking may become painful and difficult.
This condition can cause a wide range of problems, most significantly the disruption of sleep. In many cases, restless legs are related to venous reflux, so seeing a vein specialist is the best remedy for your nighttime troubles.
