Is there any connection between varicose veins and swelling and pain in feet?

Possibly: Varicose veins, by themselves, seldom cause symptoms in the feet. There may be associated abnormalities in the deep venous system which may cause or contribute to swelling. An ultrasound test can often help in determining the reason for the swelling and discomfort.
