Experiencing Leg Heaviness and Fatigue?
The sensation of heavy legs, often described as having lead weights stuffed inside your pants is a very common symptom of lower extremity venous insufficiency. The heaviness is often worse after long periods of standing or sitting. At times, the heavy leg sensation may be chronic. The cause of leg heaviness is multi-factorial and may relate to increased venous pressures in the legs due to venous reflux. The heavy sensation is often accompanied by easy leg fatigue.
