One of the most common yet painful issues is Varicose Veins. In this condition, the patient’s veins grow abnormally large; so much that the veins appear bulged out against the skin, especially at the calves or the thigh regions.
This condition may accompany restlessness and fatigue along with bad to severe pain in the legs. Feelings of throbbing, tingling, burning and heaviness in the legs may also accompany this disease.
