What are varicose veins?

Varicose veins are swollen, bluish veins that run beneath the skin surface. They majorly affect the veins of legs and feet. The term "superficial varicose veins" refers to visible swollen and twisted veins that are occasionally bordered by patches of flooded capillaries known as spider veins. They can be extremely painful and disfiguring but are usually harmless. The affected area can be tender to touch.

Indications that show the presence of varicose veins:

Most of the varicose veins do not show any signs. Few
of them can show few signs like:

Discolored veins from blue to dark purple

Veins that are bulgy or twisted, that generally appear like cords

Heaviness in legs associated with aches

Inflammation, extreme throbbing, cramping of muscles

Swelling of the affected legs

Severe pain after prolonged hours of sitting or standing

Itchy feeling around the affected veins

Discoloration of skin around the affected veins

Varicose veins are caused by faulty or damaged valves. Arteries transport blood from your heart to your tissues, whereas veins return blood from the rest of your body to your heart, allowing the blood to be recirculated. The veins in your legs must battle against gravity to return blood to your heart.

Diagnosis of varicose veins:

Before determining the varicose veins treatment, the specialist recommends to undergo a couple of tests to understand the severity and to opt the treatment that better fits your need.

Physical examination: A doctor's physical examination, which is primarily visual, can assist detect whether or not someone has varicose veins. The patient will be asked to stand as the doctor examines them for swelling.

A doppler test, also known as a duplex ultrasound, may be recommended by a clinician. This test can be done in one or both ways by the technician. Gray scale B-mode ultrasonography and color-flow doppler ultrasound are the two types. After the necessary tests, the specialist may ask a couple of questions about the symptoms and a varicose veins specialist recommends the treatment.

Treatment options for varicose veins:

In case a person experiences no symptoms, then usually treatment is not necessary. This set of people can try home remedies like compression stockings to get rid of the varicose veins. For people who have signs of varicose veins may not find relief with home remedies, medical assistance is required.
