Vein disease may present with a variety of symptoms, many of which are painful, even debilitating. If you begin to experience significant, persistent symptoms such as those mentioned here, it is best to seek evaluation and treatment by a physician as soon as possible. Left untreated, these conditions will progress and worsen over time. Early treatment prevents the progression of pain and further damage to your legs, as well as other medical complications.
These symptoms can occur at any age, but are most common in people over 40. While people often attribute some of these symptoms to “getting old,” they are not inevitable! Certain conditions may develop as a person ages, but modern medical science has produced new treatments that can improve quality of life as one ages.
