Are you on your feet all day for work? If so, are your legs and feet tired and achy after a long shift? While it may seem normal to have leg fatigue, swelling, and discomfort after standing all day, your body could be alerting you to the risk of venous disease. This can lead to lymphedema (chronic leg swelling), bulging varicose veins, and even blood clots.
You may have mentioned your concerns to your primary care doctor. Maybe you were told that it was normal to feel that way. It would be a shame if your symptoms were caused by hidden vein disease and were suffering needlessly. This is important to me because it is important to you to know that you may have a treated condition.
If standing all day makes your legs hurt, Vein Specialists of the South can help. We offer guidance on workplace changes (anti-fatigue mats and compression) and lifestyle adjustments (sensible shoes and exercise). For those who require treatment, we offer life changing, minimally invasive procedures with little to no downtime.
Thousands of Americans like you stand all day for work and their legs feel great. Whether you work in customer service, teach, or care for patients in a hospital setting, if your legs are suffering it is time to seek help.
