Leg Swelling and Leg Pain
While most people do not experience discomfort during the initial stages of vein disease, as the valves and walls of the veins weaken, blood or fluid leaks into the tissue surrounding the vessel. As blood and fluid accumulate in the tissues, the affected area becomes swollen and painful. Most individuals with vein disease report the aching, burning, and throbbing worsens as the day progresses.
If your legs feel heavy, tired, and painful after standing for a long time or if your legs seem restless at night, these are symptoms of progressing vein disease. If you experience leg pain and swelling on a regular basis, you need to make an appointment with Dr. Seaver, a trusted Diplomate of the American Board of Phlebology and Board Certified in Vascular and Cardiothoracic Surgery, to prevent your condition form worsening. Left untreated, the swollen and inflamed areas of your legs may develop cellulitis, which is a serious and painful bacterial skin infection. Additionally, if you ignore these symptoms of vein disease, you are at risk of phlebitis, which are painful clots just under the skin’s surface.
