You’re sitting in a meeting at work, and your legs begin to ache. You can’t seem to get comfortable no matter how hard you try. Or maybe you’ve been on your feet all day, walking around the house while doing chores or running errands, and now they’re heavy, tired, and throbbing with pain. Sometimes leg aches have a simple explanation such as fatigue from exercise or you’re under the weather. If you can’t find a simple cause or the leg aches persist, however, it’s a good idea to make an appointment with your doctor or a vein specialist for an examination.
In this blog article, we will help you answer the question, “Why do my legs ache?” by exploring different causes for leg discomfort, such as varicose veins and blood clots, and why it’s important to seek care if you have persistent, unexplained leg symptoms such as heaviness, fatigue, pain, and more.
If you are concerned with leg pain or other symptoms, we invite you to book an appointment with Vein Specialists of the South in one of our three convenient locations in Macon, Warner Robins, and Locust Grove, Georgia.
