LEG CRAMPS AND RESTLESS LEGS: LITTLE KNOWN SYMPTOMS OF VARICOSE VEINS

Although the appearance of blue, bulging, cord-like veins is obviously varicose veins, other symptoms of their existence may be:

  • Leg pain and discomfort
  • Rashes or dry skin
  • An achy or heavy feeling in your legs
  • Tired legs, especially at the end of the day
  • Burning, throbbing, and swelling in your legs
  • Worsened pain after sitting or standing
  • Itching around your veins or lower legs
  • Leg cramps during the day or night
  • Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS), at night or at rest
  • Skin ulcers near your ankle (This signifies a serious form of vein disease that requires medical attention soon.)
  • Neuropathy (A numbness, tingling, and burning sensation, especially in the feet, which worsens at bedtime.)

The majority of people who suffer from vein disease complain about itching, aching, heaviness, and cramps in their legs. It is important to know that these symptoms often will appear gradually, so you might not necessarily think you have vein disease. Further, such symptoms are often mistakenly attributed to aging, arthritis, joint pain, or muscle disease.
