Symptoms of Varicose Veins
Varicose veins, as we know them often, are symptoms of blue blood vessels appearing on the legs, causing the blood vessels to protrude. It becomes unsightly in appearance, blood stagnates, and the legs become heavy and tired easily, and in some cases, pain similar to arthritis and neuralgia is felt.
Even if the blood vessels are not lumpy, if the legs are swollen frequently and the constant numbness and pain continue, you may have varicose veins. ‘Latent varicose veins’ is characterized by invisible symptoms, unlike general varicose veins. Blood vessels do not protrude and there are no red or blue symptoms, so it is easy to neglect.
Accurate diagnosis of varicose veins can be confirmed through ultrasound examination. There are many patients with varicose veins where blood reflux can be confirmed through ultrasound even if the veins are not bulged. There are many asymptomatic symptoms, and symptoms such as fatigue / heavy pressure / burning / pulling sensation / swelling / stinging / skin discoloration / ulceration and keratosis may appear in that order.
