Have you noticed visibly swollen, twisted veins on your legs or feet? Do you experience a sensation of heaviness in those areas that limit your activities? If so, then chances are you have varicose veins.

Varicose veins are a relatively common condition caused by weak or damaged vein walls and valves and can form whenever blood pressure within the veins increases, according to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.

While varicose veins have a tendency to run in families, they can also be brought on by factors such as: pregnancy, age, obesity, and standing or sitting for long periods of time.

Symptoms of varicose veins include: bulging, bluish veins; leg swelling, leg pain, heaviness in the legs and feet, itching, and restless legs. If left untreated, complications such as ulcers, blood clots, and bleeding veins may occur.
