Like any other disease, varicose veins do not develop, there are a number of conditions which favour its development:
- Heredity. In fact, the inheritance can only be regarded as an independent cause of varicose veins is heredity plays a role only when there are other precedents for the development of the disease. The appearance of pathological symptoms simply because of heredity is not the case.
- Bad shoes. The high heels – it is only the visible part of the iceberg, in fact, varicose veins can cause any well-chosen shoes. A constant pressure in the area of the foot affects the flow of blood, causing discomfort in the area of compression, or in the middle of the vein.
- Constant load on the feet. This exposed people to the profession who are associated with the permanent residence on the feet (barbers, surgeons, vendors, and others). The people involved in this type of industry are faced with painful sensations every day, fatigue in the legs, very often, giving way to embarrassment, the face of which is pretty simple, just take a look of the foot above the level of the heart.
- Injury. Curiously enough, the pathology can develop due to injury of the vascular wall. Visually, this injury may be quite imperceptible, and the patient to the attention only on the subcutaneous of the event, the type of hematoma. The pain during the development of the varicose disease may be confused with the unpleasant sensations related to trauma.
- A problem inside the body. All kinds of infections, endocrine disorders, intoxications are capable of causing the development of varicose veins, the disease has no symptoms, they can develop only by following the progression.
It is important! Each disease must be in control of the doctor, because to him, it is necessary to say the same about these symptoms, which, apparently, do not apply to disease directly.
What is the pain
The pain during the varicose vein disease is common, but is not unequivocal. The presence of a symptom, just like his character, can vary considerably, depending on each patient. The anatomic changes are not related to the intensity of the events.
While one may feel:
- Nothing. In fact, the ages of VRV as not to disturb the patients, did not manifest itself, and does not impact on the quality of life.
- Swelling of the time. In medicine, this symptom is called “the episode of water retention”. The pain that accompanies such swelling, most often caused by not the pathology, and that of clothing or shoes. Swelling and pain occurring occasionally, does not appear in the second half of the day, every day.
- Fatigue. The sensation is rather approached from the pain, but it is not. The patients notice fatigue first in the afternoon, but with the progress of the disease fatigue to worsen. In some patients, we may observe a feeling of tiredness even after minimum charge.
- Gravity. The so-called “syndrome of the feet heavy” are the first in truth, manifestations of the disease. When the варикозе unpleasant sensations in the legs can be rumpitur, тянущими or even sharp. To fight with this kind of pain classic, the receipt with the elevation of the legs is obtained only in the initial phases of the disease, the rest of the time, the pain require the local application of pharmaceutical products. Very often, it is at this stage of development will join cramps during sleep.
- Permanent swelling. These swellings indicate on the seriousness of the degree of development of the VRV, can be accompanied by pain on the road to vienna, or of unpleasant sensations in the leg or foot.
- Ulcers and other violations. The violation of the circulation of the blood over time, leads to the stability of the insufficient trophism tissues. Because of this, appear external injuries in the form of dermatitis, eczema and / or ulcers. Therefore, the symptoms described above join the symptoms of dermatological diseases, which can also manifest itself in the form of pain.
Attention! The fatigue and heaviness in the legs, sometimes, not so much with varicose veins, how weight of the patient, superimposed, a circumstance intensifies the other, that causes the most vivid manifestation of symptoms.
We walk a pair of
The appearance of the first symptoms is the occasion of the visit of a physician, but in some cases, even a specialist is necessary the results of the tools and laboratory studies.
It is important to remember that varicose veins is different from the localization, and the formation of nodes does not occur in a symmetric manner. If a leg is hurt in the варикозе, while the second may not have any symptoms.
Symmetrical to the onset of pain or edema of the lower limbs may be due not only to the question of pathology, but also to other diseases of the blood vessels and lymph vessels, the heart or the kidneys.
The pain may be in only one leg, the disease does not cover the whole body immediately
Apparently, quite simply, sometimes footsore, sometimes not, but the more the disease progresses, the higher the probability of occurrence of the pain. During the progression of the VRV up to 2-3 degrees, they are almost inevitable. Therefore, it is important to not only know how to fight against the pain, but to be able to time to prevent it.
Thus, the statement for persons in good health:
- Fight against heredity. If you have a predisposition to varicose enlargement of the veins, it is advisable to consult a doctor at least once in two years, in order to identify, even the bes symptomatic for the disease.

- Do not lift weights. If you are used to wearing race packet heavy, it is time to refuse. The excess weight in the hands greatly increases the load on the feet. If lifting heavy weights tied to the profession (weightlifters, longshoremen, bodybuilders), to prevent the occurrence of varicose veins will help special of clothing, which is used for the practice of sports activities.
- Choose the comfort. Choose shoes, because, by choosing comfortable, ортопедически the right shoes can not survive the origin of the disease. It is the same thing for the socks, they must be not only be comfortable, but do not pull the elastic because it is also disrupts the flow of blood.
It is important! Nobody forces him to renounce to all the women in high-heeled shoes, because it is almost impossible. People in good health it is important to choose the shoes, you can even choose orthotics.
