Do you notice your varicose vein symptoms getting worse towards the end of the day? As you are trying to sleep you may feel excruciatingly painful cramping and soreness in your lower extremities. This is due to the presence of varicose veins.
Symptoms of varicose veins in the legs:
- Aches and pains
These symptoms often worsen as the day goes on. This is due to many reasons, including: inactivity, overexertion, and other medical conditions. Inactivity throughout the day can worsen varicose vein symptoms at night. Spending prolonged periods of time seated or standing can result in poor blood circulation. This is heightened at nighttime as when the legs are extended and immobile, leg circulation is deficient. It is important to try and avoid long periods of inactivity during the day so that at night, the legs are able to withstand immobility effortlessly. Additionally, overexertion can lead to painful legs throughout the day.
Using your legs frequently throughout the day can lead to more soreness at night. Therefore, it is important to find a good balance of relaxation and utilization of your legs, to optimize sleep quality. A final reason for leg pain worsening at nighttime is due to an underlying medical condition, such as deep vein thrombosis, or blood clots. These health issues are much more serious and may require urgent treatment. These issues have other symptoms that include constant sharp pain.
