The liquid which accumulated in fabrics owing to the broken blood circulation does not find outflow and is distributed on all length of a leg. The patient can feel discomfort when walking: feeling of a raspiraniye or stiffness of skin, weight, small constraint when bending a leg in a knee. Sometimes hypostasis is so poorly expressed that becomes noticeable only when comparing of the affected extremity with healthy.

Vypiraniye of veins

Externally this symptom at a deep vein thrombosis is shown less clearly, than at a varicosis. The picture of so-called spidery veins can demonstrate already happened obstruction of a vessel: the dense venous grid which is accurately shown under skin located not only on a shin, but also on all other surface of an extremity.
