When the legs begin to swell and become heavy in the evening (we recall, earlier “FACTS” told about what diseases the leg edema signals ), many people do not rush to the doctor. Houses make a warm bath, put a pillow under the feet.
– Even if the swelling and severity by the morning pass by themselves, and the more expressive vascular net on a person’s legs does not bother, it is advisable to consult a doctor, – warns the vascular surgeon of the highest category of the Vascular Surgery Clinic of the Main Military Clinical Hospital of the Ministry of Defense Alexander Borkivets. – The earlier the diagnosis of varicose veins is made, the easier it is for the patient to help. Over time, the manifestations of the disease are increasing: the edema does not disappear even in the morning, the diameter of the veins increases, they become convex, nodular, pain in the legs. The skin darkens, it is easy to injure, scratches poorly heal. There are trophic ulcers that are difficult to treat.
