Vein disease occurs when the veins in your legs become unable to return the blood back to your central venous circulation and heart.
Chronic venous disease refers to persistent, progressive conditions that worsen over time. Common examples of chronic venous diseases include:
- Varicose and spider veins
- Swelling and pain in the legs
- Chronic venous insufficiency
- Skin changes and rashes
- Ulcers on the lower legs
Venous disease must be addressed by a medical professional, as symptoms will get worse without treatment.
Intervening early helps prevent the escalation of pain and suffering.
