Q:
What does venous stasis look like?

A:
Venous stasis, sometimes also called venous reflux, venous insufficiency, is a condition in which the blood flows slowly in the veins, mostly in the legs.

Venous is a risk factor of varicose veins and spider veins, and it can also lead to serious and painful conditions like stasis dermatitis, lipodermatosclerosis, and venous stasis ulcers.

In the early stages of venous stasis, it can cause edema, or water retention in your legs and ankles, usually painless. But as it develops and grows, the edema of venous stasis can be uncomfortable and even painful, and finally, it may cause fatigue, exhaustion, and achiness in your legs.
