The first signs of a venous disorder are harmless. In the evenings the legs ache and the feet are swollen. Many people who work sitting or standing know this feeling. Then they discover the first varicose vein...
A "varicose vein" is an unhealthy vein. The vein has been under undue stress for too long (e.g. sitting or standing too long, lack of physical exercise): It reacts to the stress by dilating. This prevents the venous valves closing properly. The old, used blood can now only flow back to the heart slowly, if at all (blood pooling).
Many millions of people worldwide have some degree of venous disorder. The consequences if untreated can lead to varicose veins and even to deep vein thrombosis.
For your own safety, a short question about the health of your veins can do no harm next time you visit your family doctor. Specialists, too, (e.g. phlebologists) or your medical dealer can also give you precise, professional advice.
