They can includeAs we age it seems that the daily aches and pains seem to increase. We feel a little less active and spry, a little more stiff upon waking, it may take us slightly longer than it used to in order to get going in the mornings, but when your legs actually hurt and are pained that is not attributable to the normal aging process. Vein issues can start as young as early 30’s in some people.
If you have ongoing leg pain, achy legs, feelings of heaviness, feeling like your legs are fatigued without much activity and even swelling (edema), experience restless leg syndrome or visible varicose or spider veins these are all potential signs of venous insufficiency / vein disease.
If left undiagnosed and untreated it can progress and lead to the onset of changes in the skin such a thickening, discoloration and ulcerations. Legs may become discolored and red as well as splotchy. The good news is that this is mostly reversible with proper treatment. The sooner you seek medical treatment, the faster and more successful your recovery can be.
Once treated, the risk of bleeding and ulceration is lessened significantly. The most dramatic changes can be seen in patients who have chronic venous insufficiency which are secondary to superficial venous dysfunction. Once the underlying problem haves been treated the skin changes can be stopped in their progression and even reversed in some patients allowing healing to occur.
