With lots of memories to make, don’t let anything stop you from enjoying time with your grandkids— especially painful varicose veins. Many people, particularly middle-aged and older, experience large bulging veins in the legs that can cause many different types of symptoms. Varicose veins can cause pain, itching, swelling, burning, leg heaviness or tiredness and skin discoloration. Symptoms typically worsen throughout the day and are partially relieved by elevation or wearing compression socks.
Sometimes, varicose veins clot and become painful, hot, hard and discolored. While some clots may resolve themselves, clots in deep veins are dangerous because they can travel to the heart or lung and require prompt treatment with blood thinners.
Even in the least extreme cases, varicose veins can cause discomfort and self-consciousness causing you to miss out on outdoor activities and special occasions with loved ones. With IBI Healthcare Institute’s same-day, in-office procedures, you’ll be on your feet and out the door in no time!
