Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
From the description that you have given, it appears that you are about to develop varicose veins. The bluish discoloration that you are describing can be the initial stage of varicose veins. However final comment can only be made by examining you or by seeing a snap of the lesion. This condition appears cause of excessive standing. You should sleep with legs elevated and wear elastic stockings at work. Doppler ultra sound can give a definite diagnosis.
Hope I am able to solve your concerns.
If you need any further help in detail, I will be more than happy to help you.
Wish you good health.
