If you are suffering from pain in your veins, varicose vein treatment may benefit you. However, before you seek this solution consider why you may have the discomfort. There are multiple causes of the pain, as well as symptoms and signs. Metropolitan Vein and Aesthetic Center discusses everything you need to know about painful veins.
Causes of Vein Pains
Our veins and arteries are constantly working to pump blood throughout our internal organs and muscles. Sometimes certain situations cause our veins to have difficulties with the pumping process. Most people experience age-related vein pain that happens as our veins naturally lose elasticity; resulting in weakened veins that can’t pump blood as effectively, leading to varicose veins where blood pools up.
Another condition that causes vein pain is pregnancy. A woman’s body goes through great changes during pregnancy including an increased amount of blood in the body. This is necessary to support a growing fetus. However, it also can lead to enlarged veins in the legs of pregnant women. Combined with hormonal changes, this can develop into varicose veins in the legs.
Symptoms of Painful Veins
If you have painful veins you may experience a variety of symptoms including burning and red discoloration around the affected skin area. For individuals who have varicose veins in their legs they are likely to experience swelling, heaviness, throbbing, and muscle cramps in the lower legs. You may also have more pain in your legs after sitting for long periods. Other signs of vein problems include bleeding from your veins and hardening of the veins, both of which are serious. You may have vascular disease, which calls for medical attention immediately.
