Veins return blood to the heart, and varicose veins are those that have become enlarged and swollen because of the backflow of blood caused by damaged valves and veinwalls in the veins. Since varicose veins often appear lumpy and twisted, people who develop them tend to be self-conscious. In addition to their unattractive appearance, varicose veins often cause pain and discomfort.
Some of the other symptoms associated with varicose veins include the following:
- Legs feeling tired, heavy, and achy
- Swollen legs, ankles and/or feet
- Muscle cramps, especially in the calves
Factors that put people at risk of developing varicose veins include the following:
- Being overweight
- Relatives with vein disease
- Standing and/or sitting for extended periods
