Test for varicose veins first
It is important that patients with thread veins are tested for varicose veins. Treatment of thread veins does not work very well until any varicose veins in the same leg have been removed. Thread veins usually cause minor aching or itching or no symptom at all. Mild to severe pain can be associated with dermal flares as well as fatigue, aching and throbbing. This can is often cyclical in women and related to their periods.
