If the veins are damaged or become stretched, the valves may fail to close appropriately. When these valves in the veins don’t work properly, blood can flow backward.

Chronic Venous Insufficiency Stages
Chronic venous insufficiency has three different stages depending on the severity of the symptoms.

Stage 2. Swelling, changes in skin-coloring, and dermatitis characterize this stage.
Stage 3. Swelling, changes in skin pigmentation, varicose veins, and ulcers characterize this stage.
Venous insufficiency can be a reason of chronic venous hypertension, a disorder characterized by high blood pressure in the veins of the legs. Blood clots or other blockages in the veins can also lead to this situation.
If left untreated, chronic venous hypertension can cause abnormalities in the capillaries within the leg nerves, causing ulceration, bump, and hyperpigmentation. This is a condition in which some areas of skin become darker than natural.
Some of the significant symptoms of venous insufficiency include:
• heaviness, burning, or dull aching in the legs
• inflammation of the legs and ankles
• itching or cramping in the legs
• spots of darker, brownish skin
• heavier or harder skin on the legs or ankles
• open sores
• blood clots
• varicose veins
Chronic venous insufficiency causes when a blood clot in the deep veins in your leg (called deep vein thrombosis DVT) can damage a valve. If you don’t exercise, that can cause chronic venous insufficiency too. That raises heaviness in your veins and may weaken the valve or blood vessels.
