Can Varicose Veins Go Away on Their Own?
Varicose veins are a frequent ailment that can result in a variety of symptoms, including leg pain, soreness, swelling, and heaviness. But is a medical operation necessary to put an end to discomfort? Find out by reading on.
Varicose veins that are enlarged and deformed are typically found in the legs and are brought on by weak or damaged vein walls and valves. Blood might flow backward or pool in the lower legs as a result of the disease, resulting in a number of painful symptoms.
We discussed the dangers of varicose veins and whether or not vein treatment is required to restore healthy blood flow with vein specialist Soohyun Kim, MD, RVT, lead physician at Center for Vein Restoration’s vein clinic in Phoenix, Arizona.
Do varicose veins get better on their own?
The short answer is “No”, Varicose veins cannot be cured on their own. Venous reflux disorder, which disrupts the leg valves, is the cause of varicose veins. This structural abnormality, which is the origin of varicose veins, is brought on by a number of risk factors, including as obesity, hormonal changes during pregnancy, old age, and genetics.
So, until we treat the structural abnormality, varicose veins won’t go away on their own.
When should I get varicose vein treatment?
The symptoms of varicose veins should prompt therapy. Since symptoms appear gradually and people learn to accept them as usual, they frequently go untreated. Symptoms like heaviness, throbbing, restless legs, itchiness, burning, swelling at the end of the day, and crawling sensations are not typical. When these symptoms appear, the person needs to get evaluated by a doctor.
