Chronic Venous Insufficiency
Chronic venous insufficiency is a very common problem. It is caused by the veins in the legs losing the ability to send the blood back to the heart as nature intended. The veins contain valves, and when they do not work well, the blood can pool in your legs.
The symptoms of this condition include pain, swelling, cramps, heaviness, tiredness, changes in skin, varicose veins, and leg ulcers. This condition can be the result of hereditary, excess weight, an injury, or can occur during pregnancy.
