I have had leg veins treated and still get pain

In a small group of people who struggle with heaviness and aching in their legs, it may not completely be their varicose veins causing the symptoms.

The other possibilities could be:

  1. Pelvic congestion syndrome – In this condition the veins in the pelvis or higher are causing the symptoms
  2. May Thurners Syndrome
  3. Nut cracker Syndrome

The latter two are not common whilst pelvic veins can be common and cause symptoms.

Unfortunately all these conditions can co-exist with varicose veins and most clinicians often treat the varicose veins to see if symptoms improve before looking for other causes.
