Aventura, Florida, is a suburban city in Miami-Dade County, Florida. It is the most populous municipality of South Florida. People in this city live more healthily, and they do everything to live a good quality of life even longer (with healthy habits). However, one of the major health issues people suffer from is vascular problems. Aventura vascular problems are of a wide range, and if you have any, you should see a vascular specialist as soon as possible.
The following are some of the most common vascular problems you will encounter in Aventura:
Varicose veins are a condition where the veins swell and become enlarged. They often look blue or dark purple, and they can be itchy and painful. As you might imagine, this vascular problem causes the legs to feel heavy and tired; so think about your legs every time your feet ache after standing for a long time at work. You are more likely to have a blood clot when you have varicose veins. When these two conditions exist, it can lead to pulmonary embolism, which can be fatal if not treated in time.
A pulmonary embolism is another vascular problem where a blood clot forms and goes to your lungs and causes pulmonary hypertension and heart failure. If you have Aventura vascular problems, one of the symptoms is difficulty breathing. Another symptom is sudden unexplained coughing which can produce blood-stained sputum (spit).
Arterial Disease (Peripheral Artery Disease)
This vascular problem consists of arteriosclerosis or hardening of the artery walls. The primary victims of this condition are people who have diabetes and smokers. The symptoms include pain in the legs or back, cramping, and stiffness. Suppose you experience sudden swelling of your feet (or ankles) and restlessness because the pain disturbs your sleep. In that case, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible to treat the vascular problem.
Spider veins are tiny blood vessels that look like spiders. These veins appear because of pressure on the legs, varicose veins, and obesity, to mention just a few causes. The people who suffer from this condition often feel embarrassed when they expose their legs in public because these unsightly veins make them less confident. Spider veins vary in color from blue to purple, and they look like a great number of minor veins. A blood clot can also appear in spider veins which is another symptom that shows that you have this vascular problem.
High Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is another vascular problem that everyone should take more seriously. Every year, thousands of people suffer from heart attacks and strokes because they do not know they have high blood pressure, also called hypertension. Although people are less likely to get high blood pressure under 45, you need to check your blood pressure regularly, even if you are below this age group.
If you suffer from one of the above-mentioned vascular problems, go and see your doctor and discuss your condition (you can also use a diagnostic tool like ultrasound to determine if you have varicose veins or not). Many treatments prevent further damage, such as sclerotherapy, endovenous laser treatment, ambulatory phlebectomy, and arterial surgery.
