10 Hudson Valley Parent n March 2020 Get help for varicose veins Varicose veins are a common condition that happens when faulty valves in the veins allow blood to flow in the wrong direction or to pool. The condition can happen for a variety of reasons, such as aging, genetics, smoking, excessive sitting or standing, obesity, or pregnancy. If you have varicose veins and experience leg pain or fatigue, you may have venous reflux disease, a progressive medical condition. If left untreated, however, the condition may worsen and develop into a more serious form of venous disease, which can result in ulcers. Low impact exercise, such as walking or yoga, wearing compression stockings, and keeping your legs elevated can help alleviate pain caused by varicose veins. If symptoms persist, various treatments are available, such as vein removal surgeries, laser ablation, sclerotherapy, radiofrequency ablation, and gluing the veins closed.
