The warmer it gets, the harder it will be to pull off wearing pants every day, but many women with spider veins struggle to bare their legs, for understandable reasons, and because of this, it may be worth taking a closer look at your limbs, as Dr. Craig Walker explains, because spider veins might be an indicator of a more serious medical problem.

Venous Disease Symptoms:

  • Swelling or heaviness in legs
  • Leg pain or cramping
  • Visible varicose or spider veins
  • Skin problems or discoloration
