About Dr. Luke Matar
Varicose veins are enlarged distorted, twisted and bulging veins that are swollen and raised above the surface of the skin. There are usually blue or flesh colour and can appear like ropes under the skin.
Beyond the cosmetic aspects, bulging veins can be a symptom of an underlying health problem. In most cases, bulging veins are the external symptom of deeper vein problems in your legs, and they are often the most visible result of a condition we call “varicose veins”
Inflamed veins are always a symptom of an underlying vein problem. Inflammation in your veins and the surrounding skin is a consequence of venous reflux or venous insufficiency.
Deep Vein Thrombosis
Deep Vein Thrombosis or DVT occurs most often in the deep veins of the legs and thighs. It’s a condition defined by blood clots, formed when blood thickens and clumps together.
Heavy & Tired Legs
If you experience heavy or tired legs, then this may be caused by excessive blood pooling in the veins of your legs.
Restless legs are often one of the symptoms of venous reflux, also called venous insufficiency. This condition occurs, when the valves in your leg veins are no longer doing their work as they should.
Aching & Sore Legs
Sore legs, or heavy, tired, aching and itching legs, can go together with symptoms on the surface, like ugly veins. Bulging veins, or varicose veins, are a consequence of venous reflux.
Itchy legs can often be connected to a vein problem, and if left untreated this vein condition may cause other, more serious symptoms and health concerns down the track such as pigmentation, swelling and ulceration.
