The veins in your legs carry blood to your heart. They have one-way valves that keep blood from flowing backward. If you have chronic venous insufficiency, the valves don't work the way they should, and some of the blood may go back down to your legs.

This causes blood to collect in your veins. CVI, if left untreated, can cause pain and swelling. It can even cause skin alterations in your legs. It may also lead ulcers on your legs. Women are more prone to develop CVI. This condition can also cause varicose veins and skin that looks like leather. Without treatment, the pressure and swelling will burst the blood vessels in your legs called capillaries.
