What Causes Vein Pain?
Most commonly, vein pain is caused by varicose veins. You may think of this condition as purple, ropy, swollen, bulging veins caused by veins with damaged valves. However, varicose veins are not always visible. Symptoms of varicose veins include:
- Achy discomfort in the legs
- Swollen ankles and feet
- Throbbing or burning
- Cramping muscles, especially at night
- Itchy skin at the affected site
- Discolored skin
- Fatigue or heavy feeling in the legs
Other Vascular Diseases
Other vascular diseases that can cause vein pain include:
- Peripheral arterial disease
- Blood clots in the veins
- Blood clotting disorders
- Peripheral venous disease
- Raynaud’s disease
Treatment for vein pain depends on the cause of the pain. If your pain is caused by varicose veins, we may recommend getting regular exercise, elevating your legs above your heart when you sleep or wearing compression stockings for a set amount of time. This prevents pooling blood by compressing the leg tissue around the veins. Effectively, these methods relieve achy pain caused by swelling. If conservative methods don’t work, we offer professional treatments, such as sclerotherapy, Venefit™ and VeinGogh™, just to name a few.
