Here's a deeper look at vein disease.

What Causes Vein Disease?

Vein disease, also known as venous disease or venous insufficiency, is a medical disorder that affects the veins in the legs, which carry deoxygenated blood back to the heart.

Vein disease is primarily caused by the malfunctioning of the valves within the veins, which are responsible for ensuring blood flow in one direction, towards the heart. Vein-related complications occur when these valves become weak or injured, causing blood to pool in the veins.

Types of Vein Disorders

The following vein disorders can cause significant medical complications.

Deep Vein Thrombosis

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a medical disorder occurring when blood clots develop in one or more of the body's deep veins, typically in the legs. DVT can be a potentially life-threatening condition if left untreated.

Leg Discoloration

Venous stasis dermatitis, or leg discoloration, is a medical disorder caused by poor blood circulation in the lower extremities. When the veins in the legs are impaired, blood flow becomes sluggish, leading to a buildup of fluid and pressure in the lower limbs. The condition can cause various symptoms, including swelling, pain, itchiness, and discoloration in the ankles, calves, and feet.

Leg Pain

Venous insufficiency can cause significant leg pain from poor circulation and pressure from fluid buildup. Pain when walking is common in advanced cases of venous disease.

Pelvic Congestion Syndrome

This condition is characterized by persistent pelvic pain due to a vein disorder. The cause of this condition has not been determined, but it is connected to fluctuations in hormones during women's reproductive years. Varicose veins can appear on the buttocks or upper abdomen. Menstrual symptoms, such as cramping, intensify.

Restless Leg Syndrome

Typically marked by a constant urge to shake your legs, restless leg syndrome is usually experienced while in a seated, supine, or prone position. The condition is believed to be connected to neurotransmitter anomalies; patients often report a sensation of crawling, itching, aching, or pulsating.

Spider Veins

Broken, thin veins generally present near the skin's surface in a spider-web pattern. These veins commonly appear on the lower extremities and the face. Valve irregularities cause the condition.

Swelling and Lymphedema

Swelling and lymphedema of the legs result from the buildup of fluids not drained through the lymphoid system. Advanced lymphedema can severely limit limb function.

Varicose Veins

Nearly one-quarter of the U.S. population experiences varicose veins. This tangled, swollen network of blood vessels appears because of a condition that causes the reverse flow of blood. These veins can cause potentially dangerous vein disorders and life-altering discomfort.

Venous Ulcers

When the circulation in the lower extremities is inhibited, leg rashes can develop, leading to open wounds. This issue is frequently caused by a co-occurring venous disorder that impairs valve function.

Symptoms of Vein Disease

Vein disease can cause discomfort and lead to various complications if left untreated.

Here are several key symptoms that may indicate the presence of vein disease.

Potential Complications

Venous diseases can happen to anyone. Nevertheless, certain conditions might increase the likelihood of developing the disorder. These conditions include the following:
