What are the Symptoms of Vein Disease?

Vein disease may produce no bothersome symptoms at all.  However, in cases which do become symptomatic, the following are among the most commonly observed side effects:

Vein Disease Symptoms

  • Discoloration – Veins may appear blue or purplish in color. The skin surrounding varicose veins may also become discolored.
  • Protrusion – As veins become enlarged, they may protrude from skin, with a cord or rope-like appearance.
  • Dry or weeping eczema
  • Leg Ulcers
  • Restless Legs
  • Pain – Legs may ache, cramp, burn, throb or feel heavy. These symptoms may be worse after prolonged periods of sitting.
  • Itching – Itching may occur in areas around one or more of the affected veins.
