Painful and aching legs are often the sign of the common but serious vein problem “Venous Reflux.” With modern vein treatments, painful and aching legs are avoidable and do not have to slow you down. To determine if your painful and aching legs are caused by vein problems, the first step is to schedule a Painful And Aching Legs Consultation with the vein specialists at Mountcastle Vein Centers. Please read the information below to learn more on how vein problems may be causing your leg pain and aching.
Painful and aching legs are often caused by the vein problem “Venous Reflux,” a condition characterized by leg veins that do not properly circulate blood back to the heart. Blood that does not properly circulate to the heart often pools and remains in the leg veins. The excess blood in the failed veins then makes the leg veins swell, and the swollen veins can leak blood and fluid into the surrounding tissue of the leg.
The body can negatively react to this abnormal pooled and leaked blood and fluid in the leg. This excess blood and fluid can cause the leg to feel painful, achy, tired, and even heavy. These symptoms are particularly seen after a long day at work when the individual is standing or sitting for long periods of time. Although this leg pain and aching is temporarily and partially relieved by elevating your legs, the vein problem Venous Reflux that causes this leg pain and aching will cause your legs to continue to feel painful and achy the next day. Venous Reflux is progressive, and it will only get worse over time.
