Venous pressure: Venous pressure is supposed to be negative, which helps the thin walled veins return dirty blood, (often against gravity) back to the heart and lungs. When the delicate one way vein valves get damaged, the venous pressure goes up, above negative and sometimes quite high. Venous insufficiency typically DOES NOT affect arterial pressure aka blood pressure. Bad veins cause heavy, aching, burning legs ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
