What causes leg pain?

If you experience leg pain, it could be the sign of an underlying vascular problem. Common causes of leg pain, some of which can be serious, include:

  • Spider veins
  • Varicose veins
  • Restless leg syndrome
  • Leg wounds, ulcers, or open sores
  • Peripheral artery disease (PAD)
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Superficial venous thrombosis
  • Chronic venous insufficiency 
  • Other vein disorders
  • Restless leg syndrome

In addition to feeling pain in certain parts of your leg, you might also experience skin discoloration, swelling, cramping, fatigue, burning, itching, visible vein changes, or open sores.

How does my provider diagnose the cause of leg pain?

To find out if a vein disorder is responsible for leg pain, Dr. Kasha and his team review your symptoms and medical history. They examine your legs and veins and might recommend an ultrasound to evaluate blood circulation in your limbs.

During a vascular ultrasound, your vein specialist places a transducer on your skin over the affected veins. 

What are my leg pain treatment options?

To treat varicose veins or other vein disorders associated with leg pain, Dr. Kasha’s team might recommend one of the following treatments:

Lifestyle changes

Making certain lifestyle changes may help reduce vein disorders and the leg pain associated with them. Examples include weight loss, not sitting or standing for long periods, regular exercise, elevating your legs, and wearing compression stockings. 

Medications

Dr. Kasha might recommend you take medications to treat infections, prevent blood clots, or treat other vein disorders.

Sclerotherapy

During sclerotherapy, Dr. Kasha injects a special solution into the spider or varicose veins, causing them to disappear over time. The procedure is simple but can eliminate leg discomfort, boost your confidence, and reduce your risk of complications.

Radiofrequency ablation

With radiofrequency ablation, Dr. Kasha places a tiny catheter in a diseased vein and uses high-frequency radio waves to target and close off unhealthy veins, while minimizing the risk of bruising and bleeding. Blood reroutes to healthier nearby veins in your legs to reduce discomfort.

VenaSeal™

VenaSeal uses medical adhesive to get rid of varicose veins and other vascular issues. Dr. Kasha places a tiny catheter in a diseased vein to deliver adhesive and permanently close the vein. Blood reroutes to healthier nearby veins in your legs to reduce discomfort.

Surgical procedures

In some cases, Dr. Kasha might recommend minor surgical procedures to remove or eliminate diseased veins and reduce your risk of complications.

At the first sign of leg pain, schedule an evaluation with Dr. Kasha and his team at Desert West Vein & Surgery Center by calling the office or booking an appointment online.
