The symptoms of varicose veins include -

  • Leg veins become bigger, blue and twisted.
  • Appearance of spider veins (telangiectasia)
  • Most people feel severe pain and heaviness in the area
  • Swelling
  • Constant itching
  • The skin becomes thin, hard, dry and discolored
  • Minor injuries in the affected areas can also cause severe bleeding.

The symptoms like pain and swelling usually increase after a long day; sitting down with the legs raised is the only way to relieve these problems.

Some people may not experience any symptoms and varicose veins are only a cosmetic problem for them.

Thank you for sharing good information. My sister also suffered from Varicose veins. We consulted many hospitals but nothing helped in diagnosing completely.After we went to Interventional Radiology and my sister is completely diagnosed now.
Thank you

If you have gotten the varicose vein symptoms, do not try to deal with them with the use of your own decided medicines. Rather, going to better doctors for Varicose Vein Treatment would be better for you.

After many tests resulted in no diagnosis for the pain in her right side, my 40 year old daughter underwent a laproscopy(spelling?), and was told that she has vericose veins wrapping around a section of her intestines. They look like black tentacles encircling this area. The doctor said she had never personally seen this condition, so my daughter is waiting for a consultation with another doctor. I can find nothing on the internet about this condition.
