Are You Aware Of The 12 Warning Symptoms Of Varicose Veins?

Posted

Varicose veins can happen to just about anyone at any age. That’s why you should review this list of the top 12 warning symptoms of varicose veins.

Do you experience any of the following?

  • Leg pain or aching legs?
  • Cramping?
  • Burning or itching of the skin?
  • Leg or ankle swelling?
  • A “heavy” feeling in the legs?
  • Skin discoloration or texture changes?
  • Restless legs?
  • Open wounds or sores?
  • Has anyone in your family been diagnosed with vein disease?
  • Have you recently been pregnant?
  • Do your legs feel achy after prolonged periods of sitting or standing?
  • Have you tried other methods of treatment with little or no symptom relief or do symptoms reoccur?

You May Have Vein Disease

If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, you may be suffering from superficial venous reflux disease. In fact, according to Stanford Hospital in California, approximately half the U.S. population suffers from vein disease.

Today, you can choose from a variety of minimally invasive procedures that are quick and virtually painless, provide fast recovery times, and are normally covered by your insurance or Medicare.

Treatment Options for Vein Disease

  • VNUS Closure (also known as Venefit) — Delivers heat to dissolve the vein wall quickly and effectively. Most patients return to normal activity immediately following the procedure.
  • Verithena Endovenous Microfoam Injection — Provides a new, safe and effective treatment alternative to microphlebectomy.
  • VenaSeal Closure System — Uses a medical-grade glue to close damaged veins. Patients walk out with only a small bandage.
  • Sclerotherapy — Injects a medication into targeted spider veins to make them disappear before your eyes.

What To Expect In A Vein Treatment Center

You should choose a treatment center dedicated exclusively to vein care, with experienced physicians who are board-certified surgeons and a practice concierge who checks your insurance coverage before your first appointment.
