Are you suffering from strange symptoms? Do you have bulging veins on your legs? Are you suffering from leg cramps or even restless legs? If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, then you might be suffering from varicose veins. Las Vegas Urgent Care is an expert in treating varicose veins.
What Are Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins can cause a lot of issues. A varicose vein occurs when a valve in the vein becomes damaged. The damaged valve causes blood to flow backward and pool in the vein. This results in the vein becoming stretched and enlarged.
If you have varicose veins, then you may be experiencing: bulging or stretching of the leg veins, leg pain, aching, cramping, leg heaviness, fatigue, leg/ankle swelling, restless legs, itchy lets, skin changes, ulcers, open wounds, or sores.
This can be very painful as you can imagine. Even though there is no real way to prevent varicose veins, there are ways to treat them.
Preventing Varicose Veins
Unfortunately, you cannot prevent varicose veins from happening. But treating varicose veins is a solution. You can, however, help to improve the health of the veins. Physical exercise can help to keep blood circulating, and compression hose can help to keep blood from pooling in the veins.
Varicose veins are not the only vascular disease that you should watch out for.
When you have pain in your leg, you really feel it. That’s why any sort of pain and discomfort that appears in the leg shouldn’t be ignored. Swollen legs and ankle pain are both signs of vascular disease—something you shouldn’t just chalk up to soreness that will pass. There’s always something you can do!
The Types of Vascular Disease Pain
More times than not, leg cramps are caused by dehydration. But the vascular disease is also known to cause this kind of leg pain. They can also be caused by two completely opposite factors: over-use and not enough use. If you’re playing a sport like soccer, you’re prone to leg cramps. By just sitting there and not doing anything, your leg can seemingly start cramping out of nowhere, especially if you’re positioned incorrectly.
Restless leg syndrome and discomfort
Typically, restless leg syndrome is caused by varicose veins. It’s a rather strange condition, as it usually comes in at night when you’re trying to sleep. This slight discomfort, or the incessant need to constantly move your legs, is a pretty intense unshakeable feeling that can be detrimental to your health.
The reason for that is simply due to the fact that you’re losing a lot of sleep. Not always, but usually restless leg syndrome is a sign of vascular disease.
Dealing with Painful Vascular Disease
Dealing with leg pain pertaining to vascular disease has a lot to do with reducing the effect of varicose veins and spider veins. Luckily, there are things you can do to reduce the pain. Let’s first remember that varicose veins can either be prevented or minimized. They’re typically caused by:
- Lack of exercise
- Health habits
With all that said, the best course of action for reducing the effect of varicose veins and the pain they cause is to treat it where it starts.
If you’re overweight or physically inactive, this might be a huge factor in your daily leg pain. Be sure to exercise often. Since being overweight puts great strain on your legs, you should make an effort to shed some of those pounds.
You can try walking any chance you get. This is actually a really easy, low-effort way for just about anyone dealing with leg pain—even if leg pain makes it harder to move. Take it easy, one step at a time.
Quit unhealthy habits
Smoking, eating excessively, etc. These are issues that plague many people as they suffer from terrible leg pain. While it may be hard to drop these habits, it’s very necessary for your overall health.
Take care of your veins
Taking care of your veins is more than just diet and exercise. It’s about paying attention to the signs of vascular disease. There are always things you can do to minimize the pain and discomfort of varicose veins and other vein related issues.
Speaking of treatments, there are things that your doctor can do to assist with your leg discomfort.
You loved your legs once, can you love them still? With VenaSeal treatments, you always will. Dr. Ralph Carullo has years of experience with all types of vein treatments. He’s made so many patients fall in love with themselves again; he’s basically the doctor of love.
VenaSeal Treatment for Varicose Veins
VenaSeal acts as a vein super glue. A small catheter is placed in the ugly, gnarled vein that’s an eye and leg sore. Your doctor will then insert the adhesive into the malfunctioning vein. The vein is sealed shut. And the best part? VenaSeal before and after results are almost immediate. You’ll walk away feeling good and looking better right away.
It may sound a little extreme and scary, but Las Vegas Vein Center is the first clinic in Las Vegas to offer the VenaSeal vein treatments, making us the most experienced professionals in the city. VenaSeal treatment is Cupid’s arrow, so you can get rid of varicose veins and love your legs again.
Because Venaseal treatments do not require heat, large incisions, or anesthesia, patients recover quickly. Nor does recovery require patients to wear compression stockings. Your doctor will recommend waiting until you’re completely healed to get back to strenuous physical activity, but your day-to-day routine will not be interrupted.
If all of these benefits weren’t sweet enough, VenaSeal is also safer than traditional procedures due to its lack of anesthesia and large incisions.
