Leg heaviness is more common in people with professions that require them to be on their feet all day.
What Is Leg Heaviness?
Leg heaviness is a common symptom experienced by individuals with vein disease, typically caused by poor blood circulation in the legs. This sensation can feel like a heavy or achy pressure in the legs and may be accompanied by swelling, pain, or discomfort. It is important to seek evaluation by a qualified vein specialist if you experience leg heaviness, as it can be a symptom of more serious vein disease, such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Treatments for leg heaviness related to venous insufficiency are minimally-invasive, safe, and highly effective. At Vein Specialist Centers, we treat those suffering from leg heaviness with the utmost care.
