In the initial stages of varicose veins, the affected veins become more tense and stiff. This is discernible by touch, but cannot be seen. As the condition progresses, the veins become more enlarged and twisted, appearing as bluish, blackish elevations above the rest of the surrounding skin. Other symptoms, which are not directly related to the size or degree of the varicose veins, can include aches in the surrounding area, leg fatigue, itching, burning, or heat that seems relieved by elevating the legs or wearing stockings that compress the legs. The most common sites of varicose veins are the back of lower leg, the calves, and along the inside of the lower and upper legs. Types In addition to varicose veins that occur on the legs, other types of varicose veins include varicocele (varicose veins in the scrotum), hemorrhoids (varicose veins in the anus), and esophageal varices (varicose veins in the esophagus).
The primary causes of varicose veins are nutritional deficiencies, sedentary lifestyle, obesity, smoking, regular standing for extended periods at a time, pregnancy, and hormonal changes at pregnancy or menopause.
