In many cases, varicose veins are simply an inconvenient cosmetic issue. However, in some cases, the varicose veins can cause unpleasant and uncomfortable symptoms daily. Leg heaviness is common in individuals with varicose veins or vein disease. At Vein & Body Specialists, our team of board-certified radiologists can help people suffering from leg heaviness caused by venous conditions. If you live in Bellevue, Sandusky, Fremont, or Norwalk, Ohio, you can come for a consultation today.

What Is Leg Heaviness?

The legs feeling heavy or full, particularly with fluid, characterizes leg heaviness. This condition is prevalent in individuals suffering from an underlying vein disease, which may or may not be apparent in other symptoms. When poor circulation is caused by vein disease, the pressure in your legs due to gravity can cause those sensations of heaviness.

What Causes Leg Heaviness?

Vein disease is caused by weakened or damaged valves, which can lead to the symptom of leg heaviness. With vein disease, the one-way valves that allow blood flow to the heart become underperforming, which causes the blood to pool in the lower body due to gravity. With the excess blood sitting in the veins of the legs, pressure builds, and you may feel one or more symptoms of that pressure, including leg heaviness.

Do I Have Leg Heaviness Caused by Vein Disease?

Coming in for a consultation is the most effective way to determine if you are experiencing leg heaviness caused by vein disease. However, an at-home test for the condition can determine if your legs experience decreased heaviness after a good night’s sleep. If your legs feel less heavy after lying down for a prolonged period, your leg heaviness is likely caused by vein disease, as the elevation helped to relieve the excess pressure caused by gravity and weak valves.

About Us
How do I know if my heavy legs are caused by vein disease?

Symptoms of vein disease include swelling, aching, and heaviness in the legs. If you experience persistent discomfort or notice visible veins, it's advisable to consult one of our vascular specialists, who can perform diagnostic tests, such as ultrasound, to determine if vein disease is the underlying cause.

Will leg heaviness go away on its own?

Leg heaviness caused by vein disease may not resolve on its own. Lifestyle changes, such as exercise and elevation, can help manage symptoms, but for lasting relief, medical interventions like compression therapy or vein treatments may be recommended.

Will leg heaviness come back after vein treatments?

Successful vein treatments can provide long-term relief, but individual experiences and results may vary. Adhering to post-treatment care guidelines and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can minimize the risk of recurrence. Regular follow-ups with our team can help address any concerns and optimize the effectiveness of the treatment.
