Not all vein symptoms automatically mean you have a venous deficiency.

If you have aching swollen legs and show signs of spider or varicose veins you may automatically assume it to be so and while you are most likely spot on in your self-diagnoses it is important to follow up with a professional Vein Specialist in Tampa, Florida to pinpoint most accurately what exactly is going on with the health of your circulatory system.

The recommended treatment will depend on the type of venous issues you happen to have. This means that knowing for certain what you have really is the first step back to health. Lets briefly touch on different vein problems and what they look like.

  • Phlebitis: Vein swelling
  • Thrombosis: A thrombosis is a clot. A clot is a gathering together of blood cells that stick into one blob and will not let go of one another. Clots cause blockages within the veins. They can break free of their original position and travel through the system having the potential to cause heart attacks, strokes, and pulmonary embolisms.
  • Thrombophlebitis: This is the name for the swelling that is caused by the clot.
  • Post Thrombotic Syndrome: Once the clot is cleared if symptoms still are ongoing it is known as post-thrombotic syndrome. Either more of a clot is still remaining or it has caused damage to the veins and requires a closer look.
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis: Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is the term for a clot that forms in the deepest veins of the body including the pelvis, legs and even arms.
  • Venous Sores: Also known as ulcers. When left untreated for an extended period of time, ulcers will form. They are very difficult to heal.

The earlier you diagnose and treat any type of venous issue, the better the ultimate results will be. Visit and make an appointment for a consultation. Peace of mind and proper treatment are just a phone call away! 813-975-2800.
