Welcome to Cross County Cardiology

Leg Edema, Swollen Legs and Tired Legs

Many patients fail to seek treatment from Hackensack vascular specialists because they mistakenly believe that if they don’t have any visible varicose veins, they don’t need to worry about having vein disease. This is not true. There are many other symptoms that can indicate the presence of vein disease.

Leg edema (swelling) is one of the most common. Many people experience swelling in their legs and ankles occasionally, for example as the result of a strain or “overdoing it” while playing sports. But if the swelling persists for weeks or months, it may be a sign of a vein disease that is causing problems with your circulation. Another potential sign of “hidden” vein disease is having legs that feel tired all the time. This isn’t a “sign of aging” or “slowing down as you get older,” as many people believe. More often it’s an indication that vein diseases such as chronic venous insufficiency or deep vein thrombosis may be present and impairing circulation to your legs.

Find out for sure by visiting Cross County Cardiology, home of the best vein doctors in Bergen County. Our diagnostic equipment is the best available, and our ultrasound technicians are extensively trained in how to use it. We diagnose swelling and tiredness in the legs using Venous Doppler Ultrasound because it provides the most accurate picture of diseased veins that may be hidden deep beneath the surface of the skin, and gives us the information we need to prescribe the most effective treatment.
