Your varicose veins may not just be a cosmetic problem. Varicose veins are a result of venous insufficiency. Veins are unable to return blood to your heart and lungs efficiently. The blood flows downward causing buildup in your veins. Restless leg syndrome is another side effect of venous insufficiency and is common in people with varicose veins. When blood doesn’t circulating properly you can feel the uncontrollable urge to move your legs when sitting or lying down for extended periods of time. Common symptoms include:
- Tension or pressure
