Did you know that spider veins are a mild variation of varicose veins? Most are cosmetic concerns, but for some, pain and discomfort may arise.
Varicose veins are dark purple or blue in colour, and they may appear to bulge.
Aches and pains associated with the condition include burning, throbbing, muscle cramps and swelling.
Pain may intensify following periods of inactivity, and the legs may feel heavy.
