Understanding Spider and Varicose Veins
You may notice tiny red or blue bursts (spider veins) on your legs. Or maybe you have veins that bulge or look twisted (varicose veins). If so, there are treatments that can help.
Spider veins or varicose veins may never be a problem. But sometimes they can cause legs to ache or swell. Your legs may also feel heavy and tired, or like they’re burning. These symptoms may be more severe at the end of the day. Prolonged sitting or standing can also make your symptoms get worse.
