chronic fatigueDo you feel worn down, tired, unable to catch up on rest no matter how much sleep you actually get? You may have chronic fatigue syndrome. The cause could surprise you. Oddly varicose veins can be a major contributing factor in lingering fatigue.

Back in July of 2016 published an article linking vein disease with fatigue. 40% of the population has chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). CVI is a condition which causes the valves in the leg veins to stop working properly. When they do not work the way that they are supposed to, blood pools in the legs as the veins are rendered unable to pump the blood back up to the heart. Symptoms of CVI can include varicose veins, restless legs, bulging veins, leg swelling, itchy legs and leg cramps. When your heart isn’t getting all of the blood that it needs, your energy level drops.

Restless legs, leg cramps, and pain from varicose veins can keep a person awake at night. CVI and varicose veins can cause heaviness and swelling in the legs, depleting your energy.

If you are chronically tired, experiencing RLS, or any of the other above mentioned symptoms it is advisable to talk to a vein specialist as soon as possible in order to ensure the best possible outcome. They will work with you to create a customized treatment plan.

Undergoing vein treatment can:

  • Make you feel better about the appearance of your legs, enabling you to wear clothing you may not have been comfortable in for some time.
  • Eliminate inflammation and swelling in the legs.
  • Experience pain relief
  • Enjoy improved circulation, which can help prevent the onset of a variety of other health complications.
