About Varicose Veins

It is estimated that at least 80 million Americans have varicose veins. Common related symptoms include: pain, aching, fatigue, itching, burning, numbness, tingling, swelling, cramping, restlessness, and throbbing. Varicose veins may enlarge and worsen over time, and if untreated, could lead to serious complications, such as bleeding, leg ulcers, phlebitis, or blood clots.

There are many factors that increase a person's chances of developing varicose veins, including heredity, age, sex, pregnancy, and standing for long periods of time. Varicose veins frequently become apparent after age 40 and worsen with advancing age. The incidence of varicose veins is surprisingly similar between women (50-55%) and men (40-45%). Hormonal changes and pregnancy are probably much of the reason for the difference.
