Varicose veins are basically veins that bulge. Varicose veins on legs are most common, but hemorrhoids are also varicosities. Many of us think that varicose veins and spider veins are simply a cosmetic concern, but for others varicose veins can result in severe pain and serious complications.
Varicose veins can enlarge and worsen over time, and they may also indicate a higher risk of other vascular disorders.
Varicose veins cause the legs and feet to swell, and leg muscles may feel fatigued or heavy, or throb and cramp at night.
Somethimes, varicose veins can cause serious problems and result in chronic venous insufficiency, severe clogging of the blood in the veins that prevents it from returning to the heart.
And while advanced varicose veins may need to be dealt with surgically, there is herbal treatment for mild to moderate cases, in the form of horse chestnut.
