Why does one leg feel heavier than the other?  Leg swelling and vein disease don’t have to occur at the same time on both legs.  Some patients have problems on one side only and require treatment on one side only.  If your leg (or legs) are feeling heavier than you are used to, you may very well have poor venous circulation.  Blood that is not routed back to the heart efficiently can cause pain, varicose veins, swelling and heaviness.  It is important to your quality of life to fix the damaged veins and valves causing problems in your leg(s).  When you see us for consultation, we will assess both legs and determine which leg deserves more immediate attention.  Ultrasound is a great tool to help determine the severity and exact location of your venous problem.  Come see us if one or both of your legs are feeling heavy.  Call 267-416-9534 and set up your consultation.
