Here are the Most Common Causes of Leg Pain

Your leg pain may be due to varicose veins and its associated vein disease. In fact, it may be surprising just how common varicose veins really are. 1 in 2 people over the age of 50, or approximately 30 million Americans are affected by varicose veins. 

Heaviness, throbbing, burning, aching, muscle cramping, tiredness, pain and swelling in the legs are the ways people describe the symptoms caused by their varicose veins. The leg pain caused by varicose veins can be debilitating, changing the quality of life for those who suffer from them.

When left untreated, venous disease can progress, causing skin discoloration and hardening, leg ulcers, varicose veins bleeding, and blood clots. Additionally, there is an added risk for other more serious and life-threatening conditions. 

Therefore, it’s important to understand that it isn’t necessary to live with these conditions, because laser surgery for varicose veins is available. Specialist vein doctors are utilizing new technology for virtually pain-free varicose vein removal, treatment of leg ulcers, leg swelling and other symptoms.

If you suffer from varicose veins, don’t be discouraged. Don’t ignore your pain. Instead, set the goal to live without it. The vein specialist doctors at Goldman Vein Institute can help you get relief from your pain.
