Leg Veins: I cannot answer your questions based on your explanation alone. This could be a serious vein condition, particularly due to your your age. You should seek immediate attention from a physician and get an ultrasound of your leg veins to make sure you don't have a blood clot or thrombophlebitis of the leg veins. A vascular specialist, such as a vascular surgeon, may need to examine your leg as well
