Many patients suffer from pain due to their varicose veins. Surprisingly this often occurs with small veins just as much as from large varicose veins. In fact, the symptoms associated with thread veins can be worse than those which arise from large varicose veins.
Big varicose veins often cause some aching on standing but this does not usually result in severe symptoms. Thread veins give rise to symptoms ranging from tingling or itching and slight discomfort to severe, incapacitating pain on standing.
Some patients are distressed because many doctors do not believe that thread veins can cause severe pain. They find themselves passed from doctor to doctor without any explanation as to the cause of the pain ever being found!
The solution to these problems is to treat the veins. Modern vein treatments such as foam sclerotherapy and laser ablation are effective for large varices but microsclerotherapy is required for thread veins. The symptoms and the veins fade away together!
For patients who suffer the combination of large varicose veins and thread veins, foam sclerotherapy and laser ablation combined with microsclerotherapy eliminate the veins and the pain associated with them.
