Symptoms of varicose veins vary from person to person, but many experience the symptoms below. A common misconception is that all varicose veins are visible. In cases where no bulging or protrusion is apparent, you may experience a tired, heavy, or achy sensation, in addition to leg pain.
Common symptoms of varicose veins include:
- Achy, tired, heavy sensations that could be worse after sitting or standing for periods of time
- Tingling or itchy feeling in your feet or legs
- Visible veins that appear twisted, bulging, and dark in color
- Throbbing or swelling in your legs
Many people confuse Varicose Veins with Spider Veins (also called Telangietasia). Most spider veins are cosmetic issues and don’t require medical intervention, however there are cosmetic procedures available to treat the appearance of Spider Veins.
