Heavy, tired achy legs may be a sign of a venous insufficiency condition. When the valves in your leg veins begin to leak backwards, blood pools in the lower legs causing pain, pressure, itching and ankle swelling. Spider veins and bulging varicose veins may also develop.
New minimally invasive technologies now mean this condition can be treated in an office setting, returning you to an active lifestyle.
