As 2014 winds to a close, the staff at VasCare Vein Clinics would like to wish everyone a happy holidays and a prosperous New Year.
New Year’s resolutions often get a bad rap – and usually for good measure – but despite the negative connotations that come from oft-abandoned promises, the New Year is a great time to look at your personal health and commit to change.
While that resolution to be less stressed could be thrown out the window by February, deciding to embrace vein health has long term benefits. Varicose veins is a serious medical condition and if you’re exhibiting one of the following signs, you could be suffering from venous disease:
- Heavy or tired legs,
- achy legs,
- skin irritation,
- itching or burning,
- swelling of the legs, ankles, and/or feet,
- pain and discomfort, or
- leg cramps/restless legs.
These symptoms usually indicate an underlying disorder in the larger veins of the legs. If you are suffering from any of these symptoms, consider setting an appointment in our Beaumont or Corpus Christi centers. Treatment for varicose veins is considered medically necessary and could be covered by your insurance.
