Woman in a business suit bending down to hold her leg: varicose veins affecting her career.

According to American Psychological Association our jobs influence our lives even outside the workplace. Our work can be a big part of our identity and offer insights in to what is important to us. There are many factors that affect career and work satisfaction one of the most important one is health. A full time career requires a lot of commitment and if you don’t feel in control of your body it can negatively affect your career. Unsightly varicose veins are not just a cosmetic condition but present many painful symptoms such as leg pain and cramps, burning and itching and restless legs. Although these symptoms are not enough to warrant a sick day, enduring these symptoms for an extended period of time, every day leave most patients feeling less than at their best. If the patient’s job requires him/her to stand for long hours it can make the symptoms even worst. Varicose veins can also affect a person’s self confidence due to their unsightly appearance. Some women take skirts and dresses out of their wardrobe and prefers to cover their legs even during spring and summer to avoid the undesirable attention at work. Some people switch to pain relieving medication and lots of caffeine to reduce the pain which is not a long term remedy for cure. The problem that most people don’t realize is the unappealing, swollen and painful varicose veins can be the tell tale signs of an underlying disease- venous insufficiency caused by dysfunctional valves in the veins and if these symptoms are left untreated they can lead to serous complications.
