Heavy legs, what to do?
Venous insufficiency is a common pathology that affects around 18 million people in France, the majority of whom are women. There is 1 in 2 women who suffer from it, and more particularly in the most developed countries.
What is venous insufficiency, how is it manifested?
Venous insufficiency is characterized by poor circulation of blood in the lower limbs: blood tends to stay in the lower limbs and has difficulty returning to the heart. This results in the following main symptoms:
Heavy legs: feeling that the legs are heavy, numb, swollen.
This usually happens at the end of the day, due to the heat, a long walk, a long standing or lying position, etc. The muscle pump is not used properly and this is when the insufficiency appears.
Cramps account for 30% of cases of venous insufficiency. This is characterized by a persistent and abnormal contraction of a muscle in the leg, especially when standing or lying down.
It's just an abnormally dilated vein
