Leg Pain and Swelling in Dallas, TX

Vanguard Vascular & Vein treats leg pain and swelling for the residents of Garland, Rowlett, and the Greater Dallas area.

According to Duke University of Medicine, approximately 15% of all adults in the country suffer from venous disease. Some adults may not experience symptoms because the disease does not progress. Others develop chronic venous problems that may develop into more severe issues. Recognizing symptoms in the early stages is the key to keeping your veins and circulation as healthy as possible.

Leg pain and swelling is one of the most commonly missed symptoms. Many people relate the symptoms to a possible injury, strain due to normal and recreational activities, or another event. Leg pain and swelling, however, may be a secondary symptom of varicose veins. As varicose veins become more advanced, abnormalities in the veins worsen. When this happens, fluid escapes into surrounding tissues and forms pockets of fluid. These pockets of fluid increase the pressure in your tissues, which causes leg pain and swelling.

Am I at Risk for Leg Pain and Swelling?

If you have varicose veins on your legs, you are at risk for developing leg pain and swelling. Because leg pain and swelling result from venous disease, you may also be at risk for leg pain and swelling if any of the following apply to you:

  • Family history of venous disease
  • Obesity
  • Pregnancy
  • Working in a profession that requires long hours of standing
  • Prior history of blood clots in your veins

What Are the Symptoms of Leg Pain and Swelling?

In addition to aching, cramping, and swelling, the condition causes other symptoms that you may recognize as significant. Your legs may feel:

  • Tired
  • Heavy
  • Restless
  • Itchy
