Understanding Vein Problems
Have you been diagnosed with varicose veins, deep vein thrombosis, thrombophlebitis or a blood clot? If so, you may wonder what is truly a health concern and what is simply a symptom of poor vein health or poor circulation. The following is a quick guide to vein problems that will help you understand if you need a doctor’s care or not.
Telangiectasia (Spider Veins)
You might not like how those tiny blue spider veins look, but they aren’t a health concern at all. They are simply dilated capillaries and are not to be worried about.
Varicose veins are bulging, discolored veins that protrude from the back of your calf, thigh, anal or vaginal area. They are caused by weak valves inside the veins that do not efficiently push the blood back to your heart.
Varicose veins only become worrisome if you sit for long periods of time and do not keep your blood pumping, putting yourself at risk for possible pooling of the blood (and consequential clotting.) Varicose veins can be removed or collapsed by a vein specialist to remove any concern of potential clotting. In most cases, varicose veins do not cause health problems, but anyone who has varicose veins should watch for swelling or warming of the area, signifying a possible blood clot.
Thrombophlebitis (Superficial Blood Clot)
Thrombophlebitis occurs when you get injured, and as a result of the injury, develop a superficial (close to the skin) blood clot where a vein was injured. If serious enough, you may need to elevate the limb and take blood thinners for a short while to protect yourself from the blood clot moving, but in most cases, thrombophlebitis is not serious. You should still get it checked out by doctor, just to make sure.
Deep Vein Thrombosis (Deep Blood Clot)
Deep vein thrombosis occurs when you develop a blood clot in a deep vein, such as inside your leg. Such a blood clot can become quite serious, since it can move in the blood stream to a place where it causes significant damage, or even death.
In most cases, you will realize your have a deep vein thrombosis after feeling significant swelling and pain in your leg. Your doctor will identify the blood clot through ultrasound or a blood test and then will prescribe blood thinners. It’s possible that your doctor will insert an umbrella screen inside your vein to prevent the clot from moving. You will then be instructed as to how to encourage the clot to break up and dissipate as well as how to prevent future clotting.
Vein Problems Summary
Most vein problems stem from heredity, obesity, smoking habits or elevated hormones (oral contraceptives, hormone replacement therapy, natural occurrences during pregnancy.) Ask your doctor if you should be concerned about your veins and possible blood clots if you notice suspicious symptoms.
