What Are Sore Veins


Sore veins are disorders of the veins that can cause pain in the sufferer. The most common sore veins are varicose and spider veins, which, aside from being painful, can create a demarcation on the legs. A weakening in the vessel wall often causes varicose veins, which may appear as swollen, twisted clusters of blue or purple veins. Sometimes, thin red capillaries called spider veins surround these veins. Spider veins are a group of small blood vessels located close to the surface of the skin. Spider veins may also be called venous telengiectasias.

Both spider and varicose veins can occur on any part of the body, but they are most often presented on the pelvic area and lower extremities. The demarcation causes by these sore veins often appear because they are very close to the surface of the skin.

What are the symptoms of sore veins?

Many people with varicose or spider veins may not experience any pain, but are often concerned by how their legs look. Those who do experience discomfort from sore veins most often report swelling in the legs, muscle cramps, soreness, burning, throbbing and tingling, soreness behind the knee, itching of the veins, and discoloration of the skin, primarily around the ankles.

The condition most often occurs in women, who most often try to hide them with support panty hose especially designed for the disorder. Although not a sign of a serious condition, they appear to be mostly aggravated by long periods of standing. In women, symptoms can grow worse during menstruation or pregnancy. Varicose Veins increase with age and can affect 30-60% of the adult population.

What are the causes of Sore Veins?

Varicose and Spider veins often occur when healthy vein walls become weak and swell. This will cause the blood to back up and pool inside the vein. Varicose veins can also be attributed to an increased pressure in the leg veins or defective valves in the veins.

There are a number of factors that can bring about the development of sore veins, the most common factors being heredity, advancing age, jobs and activities where prolonged standing occurs, obesity, birth control pill use, hormonal fluctuations during pregnancy or menstruation, hormone replacement therapy, wearing tight clothing, injury to the veins, blood clots and certain disease of the liver.
