Although stress may be the body’s natural defense when facing danger or difficulties, chronic stress can put you at risk for a number of both psychological and physical health issues. Chronic stress is emotional pressure suffered over a prolonged period of time.
Chronic or extreme stress can cause high levels of stress hormones in the body, at times leading to certain health problems including high blood pressure, muscular changes, and subsequently, varicose veins.
Varicose veins are caused by a weakening of the vein walls and their valves, which can cause blood to pool in the legs. Prolonged stress can create added pressure, swelling the weakened veins.
Additionally, unhealthy chronic stress management, such overeating can contribute to the problem. Being overweight or obese is a major contributor to the development of varicose veins, and those who are overweight also typically suffer from more severe symptoms. Extra weight places more pressure on veins.
To add further to the problem, additional stress may often be felt over the increased risk of health complications with varicose veins, such as deep vein thrombosis, or leg ulcers. Others may feel stress over the appearance of their unsightly veins.
However, taking a small but powerful step to reduce your stress and improve your health can have major beneficial effects. Varicose veins can be easily treated by a varicose vein specialist with stress-free laser vein removal.
Two highly effective modern therapies, sclerotherapy for varicose veins and endovenous laser ablation can provide treatment with minimal discomfort and most people can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment. Additionally, most major health insurance carriers provide coverage for the treatment of vein disease when medically necessary.
