Heavy Legs

What Are Heavy Legs?

Heavy Legs are typically described as your legs feeling heavy, tight, and fatigued. They may be difficult to raise and mobility can be challenging. This sensation might be triggered by a number of factors, including vein disease. The first step toward alleviation is to figure out what’s causing the problem.

What Causes Heavy Legs?

A variety of conditions can cause heavy legs. A few of the most common include:
  • Varicose Veins:

    Varicose Veins are veins that expand and become rough and knotty, commonly in the legs and feet. When these veins lose their flexibility and valves deteriorate, blood that typically recirculates through the body pools in the legs. Legs might get heavy and weary as a result of the pooled blood.

  • Peripheral Arterial Disease:

    This occurs when fatty deposits accumulate in the walls of your arteries, constricting them. It can affect any part of the body, although it most commonly involves the legs. Your legs might feel sluggish, cramped, and sore if there isn't enough blood flowing through them.

  • Chronic Venous Insufficiency:

    Veins are responsible for returning blood to the heart and ensuring proper blood flow. When it becomes difficult for these veins to return blood to the heart, particularly if their valves are malfunctioning, blood can begin to build up in the legs.
