Fortunately, chronic venous disease is treatable in its earliest stages, with medicine or vascular surgery.

Alongside spider veins, the condition may also cause swelling in the legs and ankles, as well as a tight feeling in the calves or itchy, painful legs.

Patients often experience pain when walking that stops during rest, or brown-coloured skin that appears around the ankles.

There is evidence that some of the damage to venous valves can be repaired naturally, but for the most part, they won’t heal themselves.
