Spider Veins and Varicose Veins: A Sign of Something Serious

Some people feel discomfort in their legs such as aching, pain, cramping, or swelling when they are standing or walking. Unfortunately they incorrectly believe it is just part of growing older. Others see discoloration of the skin or even see a few spider or varicose veins on their legs . They also incorrectly believe it is “not a big deal”.  In this video, Dr. James St. George of St. Johns Vein Center visits First Coast Living to clarify that spider veins and varicose veins may be a sign of something serious.
