The Link Between Your Leg Symptoms and Chronic Venous Disease

Leg Pain

Do you experience leg pain, swelling, easily tired/fatigued legs, heaviness, throbbing/aching, cramps (especially at night), itching, restless legs or other discomfort in your legs?

If so, you may be one of approximately 25% of the global adult population suffering from venous reflux (also called insufficiency) disease or a more serious form of venous disease called chronic venous insufficiency (CVI).  More than 30 million Americans are afflicted with venous disease, yet only 1.9 million seek treatment each year.

You probably know if you have any of the above leg signs and symptoms or noticeable blue-purple bulging/protruding unsightly, sometimes painful varicose veins. However, there’s a good chance you may not know what is responsible for your symptoms and not fully understand the extent of the damage if left untreated. 

Venous Reflux/Insufficiency Disease is the name for a progressive condition that develops when healthy valves in your veins (see below) which normally return blood from the legs to the heart no longer function.  These malfunctioning diseased valves allow a backward flow of blood (reflux) and result in blood to pool in the legs. If left untreated this condition may progress to Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) with symptoms that worsen over time.
