Your doctor will practice a physical exam and look at your legs when you are standing to see whether there is swelling. You also need an ultrasound test to know whether you have a blood clot. If your varicose veins are not serious, following ways can help you:
  • Exercises.
  • Lose weight.
  • Elevate legs.
  • Avoid long-time standing or sitting.
  • Wear compression stockings.
If your condition is serious, your doctor may prescribe following treatments:
  • Sclerotherapy.
  • Foam sclerotherapy of large veins.
  • Laser surgeries.
  • Catheter-assisted procedures.
  • High ligation and vein stripping.
