Vein Disease Symptoms
Varicose and spider veins can occur when the valves in the vein allow blood to flow in the wrong direction and cause the blood to pool or stretch the vein out. Aside from noticing small blue or red spider veins, or more rope-like varicose veins, there are other symptoms of vein disease to be aware of. Veins are common to appear in your legs and can cause symptoms including leg vein pain, aches, cramping, or a restless or tired feeling. You can also experience a burning or itching sensation, skin changes, swelling, and loss of hair.
