Remember when you used to be able to enjoy outdoor activities, before you had the constant leg pain and aching that youíre experiencing now? Most mornings, just getting out of bed is a painful nightmare. You are barely able to climb stairs and going for a walk with your family is out of the question. Youíre embarrassed to show off your legs and wish that you could wear shorts instead of pants and capris in the summer heat. It seems like you are missing out on so many things that you used to enjoy. If this is all too familiar to you, itís time for you to make an appointment at Milligan Vein, your Tennessee vein clinic.
What Causes Varicose Veins?
The veins in your body carry your blood back to your heart. Sometimes they can become weakened or damaged, causing the blood to back up and pool in the veins. Over time, this can cause the veins to swell and begin to appear under the skin as blue lines; varicose veins. It makes no sense to ignore them; they arenít going to go away on their own; they will only get worse over time. Itís important that you talk to the friendly, helpful, professional staff at the Tennessee vein clinic. They have been treating patients like family for generations and they are ready and able to help you too.
