Causes of Varicose Veins
Veins, unlike arteries, carry blood against the force of gravity.
They rely on leg muscle contraction and one-way valves inside your veins to carry blood back to your heart. When the valve in a vein fails, gravity keeps blood from flowing back to your heart efficiently. This causes blood to pool or reflux in the veins of your legs and ankles, leading to bulging varicose veins.
Symptoms of Varicose Veins
Varicose veins can result from heredity, aging, hormonal factors such as puberty, pregnancy or menopause, or even injury.
