Blood vessel inflammation, or vasculitis, is a potentially serious condition that can lead to tissue damage and organ failure. It occurs when the walls of arteries, veins and capillaries become inflamed and swollen due to an autoimmune reaction, infection or other inflammatory processes. In some cases, it can even be life-threatening. When blood vessels become inflamed, they can narrow or weaken which reduces the amount of oxygenated blood that reaches vital organs such as the heart or brain. This can cause a number of symptoms such as fatigue, fever and joint pain as well as more serious complications like stroke or heart attack.


Other possible complications include kidney failure, blindness and nerve damage. These conditions can result in disability or death if not treated quickly. In addition to its potential for causing serious health issues, vasculitis also has long-term effects on overall health including increased risk for developing cancer and cardiovascular disease later in life due to weakened blood vessels leading to poor circulation in the body. Therefore it is important that anyone experiencing any symptoms associated with vasculitis should seek medical attention right away so that treatment options such as steroids, immunosuppressants or antibiotics can be started right away before any further damage occurs.

Early diagnosis is key for successful management of this condition and preventing long term health complications down the line. Contact Milner Vein & Vascular for a consultation.
