What Can Happen if I Don't Treat My Varicose Veins?

Some people never have any symptoms from their varicose veins but for most they will eventually cause one or more of the following...

  • Aching, tired or heavy legs.
  • Cramp
  • Itching skin
  • Restless legs
  • Swollen legs
  • Varicose eczema
  • Varicose ulcers
  • Lipodermatosclerosis (woody, pigmented lower legs)

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)

Once you have symptoms it is recommended to treat the cause by treating the varicose veins.  Some people prefer to treat the veins before they are symptomatic in order to prevent problems later and to gain a cosmetically more acceptable leg.

A consultation with a phlebologist combined with a comprehensive Duplex ultrasound will provide enough information for you to decide whether treatment is the best solution or whether you can leave things as they are or improve symptoms with compression hosiery alone.
