When spider veins appear on your legs they may be a symptom or warning of a more serious venous issue. This is particularly true if the spider veins are associated with swelling of the leg, tender leg, restless legs, itchy skin, pain and the feeling of tired legs due to standing for extended periods of time. Just keep in mind that spider veins are treatable, as well as the symptoms associated with them.
If spider veins are diagnosed properly they are not a serious health issue. But if the venous issue that is causing the spider veins is not addressed, it is just going to progress. It will be just a matter of time before more new veins appear accompanied with debilitating symptoms that will interfere with the quality of your life by causing problems in walking, sleeping, standing and other activities you love to do such as swimming or biking. Once you have a proper diagnosis by a professional vein specialist, you can then go over the various treatment options available to you. The vein specialist will help set up the treatment plan that is best suited for your personal vein issues.
