Early Signs and Symptoms of Vein Diseases

Untreated vein diseases can be extremely dangerous. We don’t say that to frighten you, just to make sure you realize how important treating them is. That being said, if you know what signs and symptoms to pay attention to, then you’ll be a lot better off in the long run. Here are a few of those symptoms that could be a sign of an underlying vein issue.

Itching And Burning

Itching and burning are the most common sign that there may be an issue with your veins. Many patients report feeling the itching and burning over their spider or varicose veins. This itching sensation is caused by the stagnant blood that’s been stalled inside the veins. These veins can usually be easily treated with a small injection.

Aching And Throbbing

This is another common symptom. If you have an undiagnosed venous disease, your legs will likely feel achy or throbbing. They may also have an overall feeling of fullness. If this sounds familiar and it has started to interfere with your regular activities or routine, definitely schedule a vein screening with us.

Numbness And Tingling

Numbness and tingling are other symptoms. This sensation may feel like your legs or feet are asleep, like that pins and needles feeling. This can be incredibly frustrating or annoying, especially if it’s happening often.

Heaviness In Legs Or Fatigue

If you’re on your feet all day, it might be hard to recognize this symptom. However, one hallmark of this symptom is that your feet may feel like they are too heavy to lift. This fatigue is not normal and could be a sign of venous reflux disease.

Restless Leg Syndrome

While not always a sign of vein disease, restless leg syndrome may be indicative of underlying issues. Restless leg syndrome usually occurs at night and can make it difficult to relax and unwind and almost impossible to sleep.

If these symptoms sound familiar or you have questions about your veins, we’d love to answer them! Call us at 713.349.8346 (VEIN) today to schedule a consultation.
