What Is Varicose Vains?
Varicose veins are small, yellow-brown, veins that are common in the legs of the body. They are found all over the body, but especially in the legs, feet, and face. It is a common condition that people see in children but can happen to adults. People who suffer from varicose veins have no clue why they develop them. People who have varicose veins often don't notice that their legs and feet are getting sick because their feet don't seem to hurt.
When people first develop varicose veins, there is little or no pain in the leg. This can last for a few weeks or for several months. Sometimes people may feel the pain in the knee or ankle. Sometimes it seems to be in the calf, hip, or foot. Sometimes the pain is in both the knee and ankle. Sometimes the pain doesn't hurt at all, and sometimes it is very severe and the person may be in pain throughout the entire day. It is a very common symptom of varicose vales. It also is common for a person to experience swelling, stiffness, or numbness of the feet, hands, and or the face.
This means that you may want to do some tests, including a simple blood test or imaging scan to check for complications of varicose veins.
