Why there is a feeling of heaviness in the legs
The primary participant in circulation in the legs is a venous outflow. It operates on the principle of a system of valves that open under the influence of blood pressure and are closed automatically, thus preventing the backflow of blood. This mechanism ensures the flow of blood up to the heart, in particular by reducing the calf muscles and due to the pressure in the vessels of the stage.
When the walls of the vessels become thinner, or the person leads a non-active lifestyle, the venous outflow is disturbed. Most often, the symptoms of such a disorder develop gradually in the form of a feeling of heat or fatigue in the legs.
