What Are Varicose Veins?

According to Wikipedia, “Varicose veins are veins that have become enlarged and twisted. The term commonly refers to the veins on the leg, although varicose veins can occur elsewhere.”

 

According to WebMD.com (links added),

“Compression stockings help relieve the symptoms of varicose veins. They improve circulation and are a mainstay of treatment for varicose veins that are causing symptoms. (Mild varicose veins that are not causing symptoms don’t need treatment.) Compression stockings are tightest at the foot. They gradually loosen as they fit higher on the leg.

Doctors often recommend that you wear the stockings during the day to help relieve symptoms.

  • For very mild symptoms, you may want to start out using regular support panty hose, thigh highs, knee-highs, or knee high compression socks (which end just above the calf, below the knee). You may find that these help swelling and aching considerably. They are also very affordable compared with other medical compression brands. JINNI MD medical compression stockings and socks are available online or in store.
