Varicose veins are veins that are swollen or twisted, either by a weakness in the vein wall or a faulty valve somewhere in the same vein. In either situation, the pain in the legs, with the bumps and discolored skin, are evidence of this condition, also known as venous insufficiency.
Veins are prominently visible. They may also appear spider veins or spider sprouts, which are tiny dilated veins that lie between the layers of the skin. Cramps in the calves, especially at night, are often recurrent symptoms. The same happens with itching or a burning sensation on a prominent varicosity.
Considering that the veins in your legs support a column of blood of considerable height, varicose and dilated veins are common. At each step, a column of blood from several centimeters high hit in the leg veins as a battering ram. The repeated impacts stimulate inflammation of the lining of the vein (phlebitis). Moreover, if there are clots in the veins or scabs (usually attached to the inner surface), the impact can release into the bloodstream and cause them to be dragged to the heart and lungs, causing thrombophlebitis.
Other causes are pregnancy, chronic constipation, low-fiber diet, obesity or sitting or standing for long.
