How do i know if my veins need any type of treatment?

Warning signs:

  • Leg swelling
  • Leg Pain
  • Dark veins
  • Bulging discolored veins
  • Heaviness in the legs
  • Night cramps
  • Restless legs

Patients who suspect they might be suffering from varicose or spider veins often find themselves with lots of questions when they first consider pursuing treatment for their condition. That’s understandable, considering that any new medical challenge is accompanied by a long list of unknowns.

When it comes to vein issues, many patients first need to determine whether they actually need treatment or if undergoing a procedure would serve more of a cosmetic  purpose. For example, the mere presence of varicose and spider veins doesn’t necessarily mean that treatment is needed.

Those in this position have options such as wearing medical-grade support hose or stockings to slow down the progression of the condition, although time and gravity do tend to contribute to the worsening of vein abnormalities. Compression can be an effective way to deal with your veins in the short term, but keep in mind that the issues may at some point have to be dealt with medically.

However, for many people the visual evidence of varicose and spider vein is enough to warrant seeking medical advice to improve the physical appearance of their legs and, typically, their own self-confidence and self-esteem. For patients with active lifestyles, recreations like swimming, boating and hiking can be dampened by the self-consciousness that often accompanies unsightly veins.

The case for treatment becomes more clear when other symptoms begin to present themselves. Warning signs such as leg aches, a sense of heaviness in the legs, leg fatigue, night cramps, swelling or restless legs are just some of the indicators that the condition has progressed beyond simple measures and can be affecting the patient’s health in more profound ways.
