Spider Veins Versus Varicose Veins
Spider veins are often confused with varicose veins, but there are distinct in terms of appearance and seriousness. Our vein specialists can help you understand the difference between spider veins, which are commonly cosmetic in nature, and more serious problems that can accompany varicose veins.
Treatment varies depending on the root cause, which your vein specialist can help you determine.
Common Progression Of Vein Diseases
When you have chronic venous insufficiency, the first symptom may be spider veins, which often progress to varicose veins. Leg cramps and leg swelling are associated symptoms, and the severity of your symptoms helps our vein doctors determine how severe the damage is.
If you forego treatment, heaviness, swelling, pain, itching and restless leg syndrome may ensue. Unfortunately, only a fraction of those with spider and varicose veins seek treatment, such as compression therapy that can prevent or slow further damage.
There are a multitude of reasons your legs may seize up following a period of inactivity, such as sitting too long or sleeping. Besides vein disease, you could be suffering from dehydration, fatigue or the side effects of medication.
Fortunately, if our staff determines the cause is not vein disease, most of these conditions are easily resolved — it may be as easy as getting enough sleep and drinking plenty of water.
In some cases, our staff might suspect an underlying disorder, such as diabetes, peripheral artery disease or chronic venous insufficiency. This could point to improper circulation to your limbs. If so, our team of specialists will start the appropriate treatment right away.
- Chest pain
- Coughing up blood
- Difficulty breathing
- Shortness of breath
Experts at Comprehensive Vein Care will work with you to determine if there could be an underlying issue with your kidneys, liver, heart or blood vessels.
You may feel a heaviness or pressure in your legs that causes constant discomfort. You could have vein disease, which can be treated. Let us perform an evaluation of your ѕуmрtоmѕ to suggest a treatment plan to help you improve your condition and feel better.
Heavy legs sometimes indicate dіаbеtеѕ, which increases the risks of peripheral vascular dіѕеаѕе. It’s crucial that you monitor this condition to avoid losing circulation to your extremities.
Women sometimes experience leg heaviness during hormonal fluctuations like menstruation, puberty and when taking an oral contraceptive.
Restless Leg Syndrome
The uncontrollable urge to move your legs while sleeping or relaxing is known as restless leg syndrome. RLS is an “idiopathic” symptom; the root cause is not known. Some medical professionals link it to diabetes, kidney disease, pregnancy, iron deficiency, Parkinson’s disease and vein diseases.
