Tired, Swollen, Aching legs

In a healthy state about 10% of the venous blood flow comes from the superficial veins and about 90% comes from the deep lying veins. When you develop a venous disease the deep veins are increasingly pushing blood into the superficial system where it accumulates. The pressure increases, the superficial veins dilate. The ankles are swollen in the evening, the person feels heavy congested legs, pain and a feeling of restlessness in the legs. Ignoring these symptoms can soon lead spider veins and varicose veins to develop.

Due to the various types of venous diseases and lymphatic diseases please consult a physician for proper diagnosis and treatment.
