How Varicose Veins Will Help You Predict the Future (Outlook Dim!)

To find out your fortune, look no further than the condition of your leg veins. Varicose veins show themselves as bulging, rope-like masses anywhere on the body, mostly visible on the legs and thighs. These unsightly problem veins tell more than you might know. Keep reading to find out how varicose veins can help you predict the future of your health, but beware – the outlook is grim.

What do varicose veins reveal about the future of Hamilton Square, NJ residents?

Although varicose veins are embarrassing, many people view them as simply cosmetic concerns that only warrant treatment if you can afford the luxury. Some people even assume that varicose veins come with age. What these veins can tell you for certain is that your veins and your circulation are unhealthy. And, as you may find over time, varicose veins often worsen in appearance and become symptomatic without timely treatment.

While varicose veins do occur more frequently with age, they aren’t an unavoidable consequence of aging. Veins harden with age and that hardening is hastened along by heredity, smoking, being overweight and numerous other factors. Stiff vein walls can cause backward pressure in the veins, which allows blood to collect and stretch out the vein walls. Hardened veins and arteries lead to countless cardiovascular and circulatory conditions, including heart disease and stroke. In some cases, varicose veins may be your only warning sign of future health catastrophe, so it’s important to diagnose and treat this type of condition early on.

Varicose veins without symptoms are unsightly, which is enough to cause any man or woman to be embarrassed to reveal their legs in public. Self-consciousness and constantly worrying about the appearance of your legs can affect your mood over time. Because most people don’t like being around grumpy people all the time, the shame of the affected veins may eventually take a toll on your relationships. You don’t have to feel unconfident anymore. You can get the treatment you need without regret from one of the best vein doctors in New Jersey and regain your sense of self-esteem.

Sometimes varicose veins are symptomatic. Swollen legs and ankles, pain and skin ulcers are just a few of the negative side effects of these diseased veins. At first, you may feel a throbbing sensation or a feeling of heaviness in the leg. Maybe you notice a mild ache occasionally after long periods of standing. Over time, these symptoms can become worse as the vein disease progresses. The mild pain eventually becomes searing after a length of time without treatment. Many people with extreme varicose veins find it impossible to walk without the aid of a cane. In order to maintain your level of freedom and comfort, be sure to seek treatment for varicose veins as soon as you can.

Although it’s fun to think about, veins can’t really tell your horoscope. However, they can be a predictor of things to come if you don’t get treatment at the earliest sign of a problem. To avoid all the nasty consequences you’ve just read about, you can take your future into your own hands by contacting the vein experts at Comprehensive Vein Treatment Center in Hamilton Square.
