A number of Americans suffers from the pain and discomfort caused by varicose veins. Varicose veins being twisted and enlarged or swollen often cause recurring pains and cramps. It is usually more prominent in the lower extremities, such as your legs, but it can also appear elsewhere in the body. Also, it does not limit itself to just sprouting up in one particular zone.
Some varicose veins do not cause any kind of discomfort, however, other more serious cases bring about a sore sensation. When it is not too inflamed, it usually does not require any kind of treatment, apart from it being clearly visible. Although clinically unsupported, there is no clearcut way that you can prevent varicose veins from taking place, but you can practice these simple steps to help reduce the chances of developing varicose veins by:
- Avoiding any prolonged sitting or standing positions
- Exercising regularly
- Staying active for at least 30 minutes every day
- Losing a few extra pounds if you are currently overweight
- Elevating the affected area above your heart level when you sit, sleep, or rest
In some cases, people have experienced skin irritations on and around the area where the veins have swollen near the skin’s surface. This area can develop rashes and eventually get itchy. If left untreated, this can lead to an infection.
If varicose veins cause you unbearable and recurring pain, then it may be time for you to consult your doctor and ask for ways on how you can be relieved of this sore sensation. Varicose veins may not be clearly visible, but if you encounter symptoms that resemble aches, swells, and fatigue or heaviness in your legs, it is still advisable that you go and see your doctor.
