I have read your Question,
The Symptoms you have stated above , could be of varicose veins
/ spider veins
Varicose veins are enlarged veins that can be blue, red, or flesh-colored. They often look like cords and appear twisted and bulging. They can be swollen and raised above the surface of the skin. Varicose veins are often found on the thighs, backs of the calves, or the inside of the leg.
Spider veins are like varicose veins but smaller. They also are closer to the surface of the skin than varicose veins. Often, they are red or blue. They can look like tree branches or spiderwebs with their short, jagged lines. They can be found on the legs and face and can cover either a very small or very large area of skin.
Varicose veins can be caused by weak or damaged valves in the veins and spider veins can be caused by the backup of blood. They can also be caused by hormone changes, exposure to the sun, and injuries.
This Condition is completely curable either with the help of medicines or through surgery , so I suggest you not to panic and to consult a phlebologist/ vascular surgeon/ dermatologist
nearby for further Guidance.
Wishing you and your husband a good health,
