Is it possible to give yourself varicose veins by standing for one very prolonged time?
Vein disease is inherited and factors such as prolonged standing, prolonged sitting, heat, weight lifting, hormones, pregnancies etc aggravate the disorder. Sometimes the valves inside the veins get weak over time causing reflux- a backward flow of blood down the legs and this pressure can dilate the vessel wall.
It seems sudden, but it has been happening over time. Go to www.Morrisonvein.Org.
