Varicose vein problem

I was treated for varicose veins 12 years ago; injections. Worked ok but they came back after a few years and I just lived with them in my left leg. However, I now experience aching sometimes, esp. at night while sleeping. Leg also feels tired. A couple of questions: 1. I need to find the right doctor to evaluate my problem. What is this specialty called? 2. Will insurance cover this, since it is beyond just cosmetic? (my leg really does bother me a lot). I am 55, except for a treated high blood pressure problem in general good health. Thank you!

Re: Varicose vein problem

You would need to find a vascular surgeon.
If your insurance covers it would depend upon if your condition is life threatening. That would be up to the doctor to make the call, and to your insurance company. You could always call your inurance company and ask them if they cover it....
