Symptoms of venous insufficiency
Venous insufficiency is a disfunction affecting the venous system.
Venous stasis due to venous insufficiency leads to weakening of the veins. Capillary resistance decreases and causes
edema. This venous stasis increases membrane permeability. The invasion of large protein molecules leads to increased
venous pressure (hence water retention).
There are many varied symptoms. The most common are redness, pain, heaviness and cramps.
Sensation of heaviness most commonly occurs in the legs and calves especially in the legs and calves (fatigue, discomfort,
tension). It is recorded that 70% of patients with chronic venous insufficiency suffer from some sort of leg discomfort.
Doctors also diagnose:
- Phlebalgia (pain originating in a vein)
- Cramps (valval reflux),
- Impatience (an irresistible urge to move legs to stop uncomfortable or odd sensations)
- and edema (swelling sensation and tension).
