Understanding Varicose Veins

Varicose vein disease appears as twisting, “rope like” cords of bulging veins under the skin. These veins are responsible for returning blood to the heart. These veins have to work against gravity and contain tiny valves to help push the blood upwards. These valves close and prevent blood from “reversing flow” back down the leg. When valves start to malfunction, blood does not completely empty out of the veins and it starts to “collect” or “pool” inside the veins. A patient is determined to have venous insufficiency if they experience inadequate venous drainage.

The vein may feel tender to the touch or numb. As you age, varicose veins can form because the wear and tear on the valves can cause blood to pool and not flow smoothly. Vein pain and other symptoms can worsen after sitting or standing for a long time, on warm days, at the end of the day, and some women experience worse symptoms during their menstrual cycle or during pregnancy.
