If you notice protruding veins on your legs, you may wonder, “Why are my veins bulging, and is this normal?” While you may consider them to be unsightly, bulging veins are not always a sign of unhealthy veins. Therefore, it is important understand the difference between visible veins that are healthy and those that signify underlying medical conditions that require a trip to see a vein specialist for evaluation and treatment.
At times, bulging veins can signify venous diseases that will get worse without evaluation and treatment. As vein disease worsens, it can affect your quality of life with pain, swelling, and skin changes. Varicose veins can also increase your risk of developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT), superficial vein thrombosis (SVT), and plumonary embolism (PE). These can be life threatening.
Blood vessel injuries due to trauma, underlying disease or being bedridden can also result in cases of bulging veins. Venous disease treatments are available with your vein specialists, many of which are minimally invasive “walk in, walk out” procedures.
Varicose veins are a common problem, especially for women of childbearing age. They typically appear during pregnancy and improve after you have your baby. In some cases, they can persist as unsightly spider and varicose veins, which can result in many bothersome symptoms. Some of these symptoms include a heavy feeling in the affected body part, discomfort or pain, itching, hardening of the affected veins or bleeding.
