Do you have a family history of venous conditions?
Do you suffer from venous disease of any kind? Many people do and don’t even realize it. Venous conditions are those that involve the veins of the legs. When the valves of the veins leak they do a poor job of pumping all the blood in the right direction in a strong enough current. With venous disease a little bit of blood sneaks through the valve and pumps backwards, pushing on the walls of the vein and stretching them. After so long the stretching will form a pocket of vein wall where blood and pool. This creates a bulging vein on the surface of the leg. If you have noticed a few bulging veins on your legs and thought nothing of it, you should think again. Those are varicose veins and they can worsen with time and eventually form clots and become dangerous. Venous conditions also tend to run in families. If your grandmother’s legs have quite a bit of spider or varicose veins then it is likely you will too eventually.
