vein disease tampa florida mark zuzgaWhen your legs begin to ache or show weird previously non presented symptoms you may not know what to think or automatically jump to vein disease. This leads many people to ignore what they feel in hoping it will magically go away. If indeed it is the onset of vein issues, it will not just dissipate and go away.

It is important to know the signs so you can get early treatment.

The #1 indicator of vein disease are the visual clues – spider veins and varicose veins. Spider veins present as the small web-like thin veins that start in one area and span out, spreading. Varicose veins are deeper, larger, and twisty. They may bulge and become painful.

Along with the visible signs you may also experience edema (lower leg swelling – especially at the end of the day and around the ankles.) Leg ulcerations may appear (areas of skin that break and peal and simply will not heal), Skin changes and textures as well as colors in the calf, aching painful legs are also a dead give away.

Venous insufficiency is common in men and women ages 50 and over (though it can present earlier in life). Symptoms may become worse when you are walking or right after you sit down. The main cause is elevated pressure in the blood where it cannot flow as needed. It can cause clots and blockages which can be dangerous.

If you suspect that you may have venous issues it is important to get them checked out by a Vein Specialist. Dr. Mark Zuzga of the West Florida Vein Center can help! With years of knowledge and experience under his belt, he can assess, diagnose, and offer the best treatment plan for your health.
