When Should I Be Concerned By Varicose Veins?

A series of factors can cause varicose veins. Although they are purely a cosmetic condition, most of the time, they can bring cramping, discomfort, pain, and other symptoms. People that are experiencing these uncomfortable symptoms often wonder whether medical treatment is needed for their varicose veins.

Let us learn situations after you should consider contacting a vein doctor.

When To See A Doctor For Treatment

When you have defective valves in your veins, blood pools appear enlarging the vein. When the vein wall stretches due to the pressure of the blood is when it becomes a varicose vein.

Some typical symptoms that could be alleviated with treatment are pain, itching, cramping, and throbbing. However, sometimes symptoms are so intense that they can keep you up at night. Additionally, you could even experience bleeding from a varicose vein. Suffering from any of these symptoms should be a sign to seek medical intervention.

Moreover, when home remedies to alleviate symptoms such as compression stockings, exercise, or elevating your legs, fail, you should see a vein doctor to learn about vein treatment options.

Untreated Varicose Veins Can Turn Serious

Varicose veins can become a severe issue. You will need immediate medical treatment if skin ulcers start to appear around the vein and blood clots in the vein. Some symptoms associated with these severe conditions include; a significant increase in pain and swelling, changes in skin color in the area, and skin feeling hot to the touch.

Although those symptoms don’t always mean you have a blood clot, they could indicate an infection that a qualified doctor should treat.

If your symptoms worsen or you notice significant changes, it is best to consult with a vein doctor.
