Hello Singhs,
As per your complaints this could be a case of Vericose veins (failure/diminish in venous return from the leg). Hence active voluntary leg muscle contracton and positioning leg above the height of heart facilitated venous return.
You can use compression stockings or crape bandage for your leg while working or standing.
Avoid prolonged standing in one position.
If the pain continues for long time then go for medical checkup.
In worst cases a surgery is indicated....

Wish you a good health soon
