It may be, cannot be ruled out. But it can be due to compression of nerve also.
Consult a vascular surgeon, if you want to be sure.

It would be better if you can get it evaluated by a General Surgeon who might order for a color doppler to determine the circulation in your lower limbs.

I think i had a vein burst Lindsey

I have severely itchy lower calves! Started on my left leg, and now both legs and has even started around my ankle on one foot! I know that I have compromised circulation and warned that at some point I will have discoloration etc at an earlier age then some! Could this be circulatory related?! Tried creams/lotions to no avail! I scratch them almost raw since it happens almost non-stop all night! HELP!
