Brief Answer:
Venous stasis is probable reason.

Detailed Answer:
Hi. Welcome to Healthcare Magic. I am Dr Anshul Varshney for your help.
Such symptoms are mostly find in chronic venous insufficiency or could be due to varicose veins. In simple language to understand this could be due to blood stasis in veins.
Now first of all you need to get a color venous doppler of your affected area and thyroid profile, blood sugar if not done yet.
So get the test done and write back to me with reports.
I hope it helps you.
If you have any further query please ask me.
