What is Leg Pain?

Leg pain is often one of the first symptoms people notice with vein disorders. The pain can range from a general achiness to sharp, burning pain in the area of the affected veins. The discomfort may increase after long periods of sitting or standing and may also worsen at the end of the day. Leg pain is often accompanied by swelling of the lower leg, ankle, and foot. Other types of leg pain you might experience include leg cramping, particularly at night when you try to rest.

How Much does Leg Pain Treatment Cost?

The cost of your leg pain treatment is going to vary depending on your current health insurance plan, the type of treatment you choose, and the extent of treatment needed to help you achieve your desired results. To get a more accurate estimate of the cost of your leg pain treatment, we encourage you to come into our office for a private consultation with Dr. Abrahamsen and his skilled team.

What is Causing my Leg Pain?

While leg pain is often caused by spider veins and varicose veins, people that suffer from leg pain may find that it comes from another underlying condition. Restless leg syndrome (RLS) is often associated with varicose veins. RLS is characterized by an irresistible urge to move the legs and most often occurs at night. Both leg cramps and RLS can interfere with a good night’s rest, exacerbating those symptoms and your vein condition overall. You may find that your symptoms improve when you elevate your legs for a period of time. This is an indication that your discomfort is directly related to your vein disorder and visiting a vein treatment center can help.

How Can I Treat my Leg Pain?

Fortunately, minimally-invasive treatments are available today to help you permanently relieve leg pain and eliminate visible signs of vein conditions like spider veins and varicose veins. Most patients find those uncomfortable symptoms are gone nearly instantly once treatment is completed. If you’re unsure which treatment is right to treat your leg pain, we encourage you to come in for a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Abrahamsen. He’ll be happy to sit down with you, assess your condition, listen to your concerns, and develop a fully personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your ultimate wellness goals.
