Varicose Veins

What are varicose veins?

Veins return oxygen-poor blood back to your heart and arteries bring oxygen-rich blood from your heart to the rest of your body.

Varicose veins are swollen veins that you can see bulging through your skin. They often look blue and twisted. Left untreated, varicose veins may worsen over time. Varicose veins can cause aching and feelings of fatigue as well as skin changes like rashes, redness, and ulcers.

What are the symptoms?

If you have varicose veins, your legs may feel heavy, tired, restless, or achy. Standing or sitting for too long may worsen your symptoms. You may also experience night cramps.

You may notice small clusters of veins in a winding pattern on your leg, or soft, slightly tender knots of veins. Sometimes, the skin on your legs may change color, become irritated, or even form ulcers.
