When should I see a vein specialist?

The earlier you seek help from a vein specialist, the more straightforward your treatment may be. Don't wait until you have leg ulcers.

 It is never too soon or too late to seek an evaluation from a vein specialist. Varicose veins may be a sign of venous reflux disease. Signs or symptoms of venous reflux disease include leg pain, feeling of heavy legs, tiredness in your legs, swelling of your lower extremities, leg cramping, restlessness legs, numbness or tingling or you have slow healing wounds or leg ulcers. Keep in mind that diseased veins are normally easier to treat and control the sooner the disease process has been identified, especially because of the progressive nature of venous disease.
