Written by Jamie M. August 28, 2017

We get many calls from various people of all ages. I had a recent call from a lady with these concerns, she said, and I "quote" I’m only 30 years old. I have cold feet, some spider veins and my legs ache at the end of the day. It seems way too early in my life to be having these kinds of problems. My mother has varicose veins. I do know, varicose veins can be hereditaryCould these symptoms be related to poor circulation?

All (3) of these symptoms or conditions could be associated with poor blood circulation in your legs.

There’s various reasons this could be happening:

  • Your Job, long periods of sitting or standing in one position too long
  • Heredity is a big possibility, especially on the mother’s side
  • Obesity, being overweight
  • Skin trauma such as a fall or injury
  • High blood pressure / High cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Tobacco smoking
  • Pregnancy

Your cold feet is a common cause of poor leg circulation. It can be called PVD – peripheral vascular disease, this disease involves blood vessels outside or on the periphery of the heart. These blood vessels carry blood back to your heart and carry blood away from your heart. Usually this means the blood flow from your heart, has slowed. The cold feet may especially happen at night when you are trying to sleep, also during periods of extended immobility.

 Your spider veins get their name, because they appear in a cluster like a “spider-web” typically small red or blue veins near the surface of your skin usually on the legs and most common behind the knee area. Spider veins are caused by in increase pressure in the veins that can trigger achy legs in some cases. Spider veins are not dangerous and are not essential for circulation, however they can be unattractive and could be a warning to have your legs checked for “venous insufficiency.”
