There are several factors that can increase the risk of developing varicose veins, including age, standing too long, female gender, family history, obesity, and disorders of the blood vessels.
Veins that develop varicose veins appear swollen or prominent with a darker purple or blue color but generally rarely cause symptoms. If varicose veins are heavy enough or long enough, it can cause several complaints such as discomfort, heat, throbbing in the legs, heavy legs, leg cramps, and discoloration of the skin around the varicose veins.
