Thanks for writing to us.
The pain you are having is likely to be due to a nerve related pain. A prominent spider like venous prominence can be due to a local inflammation in the area. A direct examination of the area is necessary for proper diagnosis and treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
