5 STAGES OF VEIN DISEASE.
Stage 1: Spider Veins
Spider veins affect 50% of Americans and one of the most common reasons people tend to cover their legs. Many times, avoiding shorts or bathing suits. Although they are commonly perceived as only a cosmetic issue, they can often be a symptom of the more serious problem of venous insufficiency, especially if you have symptoms such as heaviness, aching and/or fatigue in the legs.
Stage 2: Varicose Veins
Varicose veins are visible veins in the leg that bulge, often protrude through the skin, and affect approximately 40% of the U.S. population. These veins form because of venous insufficiency due to a faulty valve creating protrusion. Patients dealing with varicose veins often limit social activities due to the pain and embarrassment associated with varicose veins. Left untreated, symptoms may worsen.
Stage 3: Leg Swelling
One of the most common complaints we often hear is “My legs feel swollen, tired, and heavy—especially at the end of the day”. The leg veins are responsible for draining blood out of the legs and returning it to the heart. When the valves inside the veins don’t work properly, blood tends to build up and pool in the leg, which over the course of the day leads to increased swelling. Swelling in the feet and legs often leads to the legs feeling tight and heavy. This can limit mobility, and the ability to take part in daily activities and often can affect sleep schedules.
Stage 4: Skin Darkening + Thickening
The leg veins are often described as the drainage system for your skin. Similar to when a sink drain becomes clogged, with vein reflux a backward flow prevents adequate blood circulation in the legs. As the blood pools over time, it can leak out of the damaged veins, into the skin. This results in dark, thickened patches of skin that often are very itchy.
Stage 5: Skin Ulcers or Venous Ulcers
One of the most dreaded complications of vein disease is developing an open wound on the leg called a venous ulcer. Venous ulcers usually occur on the inner aspect of the leg just above the ankle. They often develop in discolored and abnormal patches of skin and are due to lack of oxygen and nutrients. These ulcers may take years to heal and unless the underlying circulation problem is repaired, the wounds will likely return.
