MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - Clotting, cramping and swelling can all be the signs of having unhealthy veins.

Ochsner Rush Health offered patients access to information about vein-related diseases and how they can be treated.

A screening is mainly used as a preventative measure, but sometimes it finds some pretty severe problems.

“So typically we catch symptoms such as fatigue, heaviness, swelling. Sometimes we do see blood clot peripheral vascular disease, and we basically give patients a heads up whether they have this condition or not and invite them back to the clinic for a full work up,” said Dr. Jason Farrar.

Ochsner Rush Vein Center plans on hosting more of these free vein screenings in the future.
