itchy legs west florida vein centerDo your legs itch?

Everyone has an itch now and then, but what if your legs drove you nuts itching and feeling uncomfortable, even swollen, all of the time? No creams or lotions seem to help nor do hot or cold baths. Sitting, standing, walking, all irritate and make things worse, and by the end of a long day, Phew… it can be too much.

All you want to do is go home, take off your shoes, put your feet up and relax.

If this sounds familiar you need to go see a Vein Specialist. It sounds like you may have vein issues. While varicose and spider veins are often thought of as a cosmetic issue the truth is they are a medical issue and need to be taken care of so that it doesn’t worsen over time.

Veins left untreated, spread. They also deepen, ulcerate, and can cause DVTs (Deep Vein Thrombosis) blood clots that can break loose from their original starting position and travel to the heart causing a heart attack, to the lungs causing a pulmonary embolism, or to the brain leading to a stroke or even death.

While it may be crazy to think that itchy twitchy legs could signal a serious health alert, its vital to tune in, pay attention, and listen to your body.

If it feels like something is off – it likely is. Let us help. At the West Florida Vein Center of Safety Harbor Tampa Bay, Florida Dr. Mark Zuzga, D.O. has been helping patients recover their circulatory health leading to healthy feeling and looking legs. The most often heard comment we get from patients is “I wish I had done this sooner.”

Why wait? The time is now.
