Learn how to identify symptoms of tired legs

Swelling related to tired legs is frequently related to body position. This swelling in the legs will be aggravated when spending long periods of time without moving. For example, when we sit or stand for long periods of time. The swelling associated with tired legs can also be made worse by heat. In addition, muscle crampspain and tingling in the  legs may occur. These symptoms related to tired legs may be the beginning of chronic venous insufficiency, a problem that progresses and gets worse, evolving, for example, into varicose veins. 1

Treatment with venotonic and venoprotective drugs has been shown to significantly improve the condition of symptoms related to oedema and chronic venous inefficiency (CVI). CVI is characterised by heavy legspain and cramps at night2
