Varicose veins are a common condition that affects many people, especially as they age. They are swollen, twisted veins that are visible just under the surface of the skin. While they can occur anywhere in the body, they are most commonly found in the legs and feet.
The cause of varicose veins is a malfunctioning of the valves in the veins. Normally, these valves help to keep blood flowing in the right direction, towards the heart. However, when they become weak or damaged, blood can flow backwards and pool in the veins, causing them to become swollen and twisted.
There are several risk factors that can increase your chances of developing varicose veins. These include age, as the risk increases as you get older, as well as family history, being overweight or obese, and spending long periods of time standing or sitting.
Symptoms of varicose veins can vary from person to person, but some common signs include:
- Swollen, twisted veins that are visible just under the surface of the skin
- Aching, heavy or uncomfortable legs
- Itching or burning around the affected veins
- Muscle cramps or swelling in the lower legs
- Skin changes, such as discoloration or thickening
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to speak to your doctor. While varicose veins are usually not a serious health concern, they can sometimes lead to complications such as blood clots or ulcers.
