Heavy legs

One of the most common signs of venous insufficiency is unequivocally a feeling of heavy legs. To relieve this symptom, you can elevate your legs, wear compression stockings or apply cold to your legs (water, spray) starting from the ankles and moving up to the thighs.


The sensation of heavy legs is accompanied in most cases by swelling. The appearance of edema (unusual swelling of the legs and/or ankles) can also be observed. This edema may also be accompanied by a burning sensation and discomfort, especially when temperatures are high.
