Pain (an aching or cramping feeling)
Tender areas around the veins
Blood clots (e.g., DVT)
Ankle sores or skin ulcers
If you are experiencing any of the above, consult your physician, as treatment may be required.
Heredity – One of the most important factors. If your parents and grandparents had the problem, you are at increased risk.
Gender – Women have a higher incidence of varicose vein disease due in part to female hormones and their effect on the vein walls.
Pregnancy – Blood volume increases during pregnancy and hormonal effects contribute to vein enlargement.
Age – The tissues of our vein walls lose elasticity as we age causing the valve system to fail.
Prolonged standing – Occupations that involve standing for long periods of time cause increased volume and pressure of blood in the lower limbs due to the effects of gravity.
Obesity – Increases in weight often increase abdominal pressure which may worsen vein problem.
Hormone levels – Treatments like birth control pills and post-menopausal hormone replacement may cause the same hormonal effect as pregnancy.
Physical Trauma – Injury to the lower limbs can damage underlying blood vessels and valves, add to the problem.
