Doctor :   Do you notice any veins in your leg becoming prominient

User :   but if i sit particularly on the floor
Doctor :  
Doctor :   as you have swelling with pain
Doctor :   I would advise you to see your family doctor
Doctor :   so that he can examine your legs and the knee
User :   ok

Doctor :   to see if any sort of vein problem is causing this
User :   why suddenly it will give?
User :   i am not even aged
Doctor :   It would be better to see the same doctor who prescribed those medicines for you
Doctor :   so that he will know what you are taking
Doctor :   so that he can change it-
Doctor :   if the medicine has caused the problem
Doctor :   these problems can happen anytime
