Understanding Vein Disease | El Paso TX
Have you noticed some possible spider veins or varicose veins on your legs recently? These could be signs of vein disease. Fortunately, vein specialists such as Dr. Kasha can help you determine the severity of your condition and the next steps to relieve your discomfort.
How Do I Know if I Have Varicose or Spider Veins?
It is usually simple to locate varicose or spider veins on your body because of their pronounced appearance. For instance, varicose veins are usually found in the legs. Even though you might not see them, they can cause problems. When they are visible, they appear as raised, large swollen blood vessels that are twisted and turned. While spider veins are generally blue, purple, and red in color and smaller than varicose veins.
Why Do I Need to Address Vein Issues?
Vein disease can be a serious medical issue as well as a cosmetic concern. Veins play an important role in your circulatory system, carrying blood from throughout your body back to your heart. Problems with the valves in the veins can occur causing blood to flow down the vein resulting in increased pressure in the vein. This can result in a range of symptoms and problems, including:
- Limited Mobility
- Severe Pain
- Restless Leg Syndrome
- Skin Changes
For many, minimally invasive treatment options ensure long term pain relief and return to normal activities which is why addressing the issue is essential before your condition worsens.
