It is time to see a Doctor about your veins

Spider or varicose veins in your legs may appear unattractive, but they are nothing to be concerned about. Leg veins, however, are cause for concern for reasons other than aesthetics. Vein issues may be dangerous, so here are six indicators that it's time to consult a vein expert.

If you're experiencing any of the following symptoms, it's time to contact a doctor:

You have swelling legs. Swelling is a frequent sign of varicose vein disease, which can affect one or both sides of the body.

Itchy skin is a problem for you. This might be a sign of chronic venous insufficiency, which is caused by blood collecting in your legs and can cause major circulation issues.
Your varicose veins have started to hemorrhage. If this happens, lie down and elevate the bleeding leg while applying pressure. If the bleeding does not stop, get medical assistance right away.
You're in a lot of discomfort. Of course, no one likes to be in agony, so you're definitely thinking of seeing your doctor right now. Exercise can help avoid discomfort from vein issues (always see your doctor before beginning an exercise plan), but if this isn't working or you're unable to exercise, your doctor can assist you in finding a solution that works for you.
Your veins are bluish-green in hue.
