Varicose Vein Symptoms
Varicose veins are relatively easy to identify and can be a cosmetic nuisance for many people.
Varicose veins can be more prominent or first appear during menstruation or pregnancy, and they may be more bothersome during these times.
Some people may have no symptoms at all. For most people, varicose veins are mainly a cosmetic problem.
Varicose veins are prone to developing superficial thrombophlebitis, which is a blood clot along with inflammation of a segment of vein.
