What are varicose veins?

Varicose veins are veins that have lost the ability to pump blood as efficiently and have stretched and swollen with blood. They are large and unsightly, looking similar to large blue or purple vines. Varicose veins are often painful and especially when standing or walking.

What causes Varicose Veins?

To understand how varicose veins occur you must understand how veins work, veins have little door like contraptions called valves that disable blood from flowing backwards. As time goes by some of those veins and valves can wear down and become engorged with blood, that is a varicose vein. They mostly show up on your ankles, feet and legs because gravity is constantly pulling your blood down and those veins have to work twice as hard to pump the blood back to the heart. They are painful for people who have them especially after sitting or standing for a long period of time.

Are there health risks involved with varicose veins?

There are some health risks involving varicose veins including:

  • Swollen leg
  • Ulcers (open sores)- this occurs when the engorged vein does not drain enough fluid properly from the skin
  • Fungal/bacterial infections- these also may occur due to fluid buildup under the skin, these infections also increase risk of tissue infection
  • Thrombosis- this is where blood clots form inside the enlarged vein
