Many of us completely ignore the symptoms of various diseases. If you ignore the symptoms of varicose veins, the consequences can be very serious.

the negative effect on blood vessels (blood is pumped more slowly). Quite often, this disease occurs in elderly people. Due to age, the walls of the vessels cease to be elastic, as before, and begin to expand, and this leads to a deterioration in blood pumping. Varicose veins appear in pregnant women, due to the increase in weight caused by the growth of the fetus inside the abdomen, as well as a significant reduction in physical activity, which contributes to the expansion of the veins. Also, if you have had phlebitis or thrombosis, then you probably suffer from venous disease. In these conditions, the veins become clogged, which leads to increased pressure in the legs and sometimes damage to the valves. In addition, varicose veins can form due to the use of hormonal drugs, high cholesterol, posture defects, as well as alcohol and smoking abuse, weight lifting. Improper diet, addiction to hot baths, a very strong tan or small uncomfortable clothes can serve as a reason for the formation of varicose veins. At different stages, the disease manifests itself in different ways. In the early stages of the disease: Vessels become very noticeable – the vascular network is very much translucent, and “asterisks” also appear – some accumulations of vessels in the form of the same name with a characteristic bluish color; heaviness in the legs (they seem to “buzz”), as well as their swelling – leg fatigue especially increases in the evening; “Trembling” of the leg muscles; constant desire to change body position.

At this stage, both external and as a result of testing, the signs of the disease are not noticed, but the person feels the symptoms inherent in varicose veins (described in the article above). First. Most doctors believe that the main reason for the development of varicose veins is heredity. If your parents, grandparents or grandmothers suffer from varicose veins (and it does not matter, on the legs or elsewhere), then perhaps this disease could be transmitted to you. But even if you have weak blood vessels, this does not mean that you have a disease. Varicose veins develop in connection with an immobile lifestyle, constant sitting at the place of work, wearing high heels, as well as constant heavy physical exertion (wearing weights also applies to this). Second. Given that the previous stages do not seem serious, this is where the real varicose veins begin. The veins become very visible and can enlarge after exertion on the legs. Blood clots are possible. Third. To the symptoms described above, puffiness is added, moreover, it is regular, especially noticeable in the evening. Fourth. Severe skin irritation is formed up to atrophy of the skin, there is a change in skin color in some parts of the body (brown, black). Fifth.
