Veins in legs often become varicose, especially when a person stands a great deal. Heart and liver diseases, gout, pregnancy, abdominal tumors are among the various other causes of varicose veins. In more grave cases of varicose veins, bluish knotty lumps form along the vein. The patient feels much pain in the leg. The main dangers are that blood will clot in vein or that the vein will burst, and cause hemorrhage. The diseased veins can also keep the tissues from getting enough nourishment. Water may collect under the skin and may cause swelling and ulcers. The blood circulates in body through a system of tubes called blood vessels. The three kinds of vessels are arteries, capillaries, and veins. Most veins return blood to the heart after it has given out nourishment to the tissues and taken up waste products and poisons. Blood in veins is called venous blood. The blood returning from body cells has lost much of its oxygen, and is dull, brownish-red. It circulates through right side of the heart and then goes to the lungs. Here it gives off its waste carbon dioxide and takes on a new supply of oxygen. Bright red blood from lungs returns to heart through the pulmonary veins. Then it begins its rotation through the body.
Varicose veins are larger blood vessels that have become swollen and twisted. They appear dark blue and stick out from the skin like raised tunnels.
Normally the veins have a one-way valve to prevent backflip. However, defective valves allow blood to flow backward and pull inside the vein. As blood pools within the vein, pressure builds and the vessel wall weakens. As a result, the vein tends to bulge and twist. Depending on the size of the blood vessel and extent of swelling, the result is a spider vein or varicose vein. Anyone can be affected, but women are twice as susceptible as men, and more common to those whose job profile is to keep them on their feet, including nurses and teachers.
Signs and symptoms:
^ Varicose veins in particular may cause aching or cramping in the legs.
^ Aching, heavy legs often get worse at night and after exercise.
^ The affected area may throb, burn, tingle, or feel heavy with appearance of spider veins (telangiectasia) in the affected leg.
^ Severely inflamed veins can be tender to the touch and may cut circulation, leading to itchy, swollen ankles, especially in evening.
^ They can also produce chronic skin and tissue changes such as discoloration and ulceration of the skin or ulcers–large sores in the skin, especially near the ankles, can also form painful blood clots.
^ Minor injuries to the area may bleed more than the normal or take a long time to heal.
^ Restless legs syndrome appears to be a common overlapping clinical syndrome in patients with varicose veins and other chronic venous insufficiency.
^ In some people the skin above the ankle may shrink as the fat underneath the skin becomes hard.
^ If the veins are causing pain, soreness, and muscle fatigue or cramping, there are steps one can take at home to cut the symptoms.
•Support stockings, simplest treatment for varicose veins, sometimes called compression stockings; they improve circulation and relieve pain and discomfort in the legs.
•Lifestyle Changes, Losing weight and walking regularly can ease the symptoms of varicose veins. If swelling is a problem, try a low-salt diet to cut water retention. Whenever there is a possibility, prop up legs with a pillow or recliner so they rest at above the level of heart.
Preventing: Getting plenty of exercise is the best way to ward off varicose veins. Exercise helps keep weight under control and at the same time leg muscles toned, so in that case blood will flow freely. If one’s job keeps on feet, it is always better to stretch leg muscles often to increase circulation. And if pregnant, try to sleep on your left side and not your back.
