Tired, heavy-feeling legs
One of the first signs of vein disease- your legs feeling chronically tired and heavy. This is a clear indication that the return flow of blood from the legs to the heart is impaired. The result is oxygen depletion in your legs and pooling of blood, increasing the pressure in your legs, giving you that tired, heavy feeling.
Many people think it is normal to have tired, heavy legs or that it is a part of aging. It is not. If you or someone you know, suffers from these symptoms, especially legs that become tired and heavy toward the end of the day, causing you go slow down your activities to sit and elevate the legs, you should get checked out for venous insufficiency.
