When should I seek Medical Advice?
If you’re concerned about how your veins look and feel, and self-care measures haven’t stopped your condition from getting worse, its time to make an appointment.
How is a diagnosis made?
In making a diagnosis, we will examine your legs while you’re standing and look for swelling. We will ask you to describe any pain or aching in your leg. Finally, it may be necessary to perform ultrasound tests to see if there’s any evidence of a blood clot, determine the location and size of the leaking valve, and to exclude other vascular conditions as contributing to your symptoms.
