There are a variety of causes.
The leading cause of venous insufficiency (venous reflux) is heredity. So if your Grandma and Mom had or have aching, throbbing, bulging veins on their legs, chances are good that you’ll get them too.
Another reason people get varicosities is because of their occupation––being on their feet all day. Other factors include:
- Age (the older you are, the more likely you can get them)
- Gender (women are more likely to develop the condition than men because of hormonal changes)
- Pregnancy (because of increased hormonal levels)
- Being overweight
- A lack of movement
- Leg trauma or bruises
