dear friend, welcome to HCM.
long term presence of varicose veins
causes venous insufficiency
and limb pain and discoloration if untreated. later swelling, skin ulceration, infections occur.
so you need to get evaluated well by a surgeon, get a doppler of the sapheno-femoral junction for an incompetent valve there causing increased preesure below. look for thrombosis
(clotting) in the veins.
is there swelling, tightness, discoloration around the ankle/ foot?
is the pain relieved on keeping the leg elevated?
are you using elastic stockings?
pl. get medical advice
of a surgeon, keep legs elevated over pillows while resting, minimize standing/ walking for long. use elastocrepe bandages under guidance.
sometimes one needs a small surgery to treat varicosities.
I hope I have informed you well.
take care and keep me posted on your progress.
