Dealing with Varicose Veins
- 5 Months ago
Varicose veins are enlarged and swollen veins, often linked to faulty valves in the vein. They are generally blue or dark purple. People with varicose veins on their legs may experience cramping pain and heavy limbs. In severe cases, the varicose veins may rupture or ulcers may form on the skin.
Many women first develop or find that varicose veins get worse during pregnancy, this is because the uterus grows and puts pressure on large veins of the body which eventually increases pressure in the veins of the legs.
