About Artery and Vein Pain
Arteries and veins are part of a complex circulatory system of vessels that carry blood. Veins carry blood from the body to the heart. Arteries carry oxygen-rich blood from the heart to every part of the body. Artery and vein pain, otherwise known as vascular pain, is caused by the disruption of blood flow to the tissues and muscles, resulting in numbness, weakness, or tingling feelings felt in fingertips, hands, toes, feet, and legs.
Different kinds of vascular diseases potentially could cause this type of pain, including:
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Peripheral vascular disease
- Coronary artery disease
- Varicose veins
If you are experiencing a lack of circulation, pain, or heaviness in certain areas, schedule a consultation at Pain Zero to find out how our team can help you in Central Ohio.
Artery and Vein Pain Treatment
Vascular pain patients may not experience severe pain, but vascular pain may be a sign of serious vascular diseases, such as deep vein thrombosis and arteriosclerosis. Immediate treatments for artery and vein pain can include procedures to correct the circulatory system by opening blocked arteries and bypass surgery. Our pain care specialists at Pain Zero can also treat vascular pain with medications, including aspirin therapy, and in some cases, pain management is successful by using nerve blocks, specifically sympathetic blocks, ablations, and spinal cord stimulation to reduce pain and improve circulation.
To reduce the risk of developing certain vascular conditions, doctors advise patients to commit to a series of lifestyle changes such as weight loss, not smoking, and regular exercise. Our staff also recommends keeping your legs elevated and avoiding standing for long periods of time. Compression clothing, like socks, stockings, gloves, and sportswear, also aids in promoting circulation and avoiding swelling in the limbs.
