Just some soreness: Majorities do not need any pain medications. May be just some tylenol (acetaminophen) or other over the counter medications for pain.

Mild discomfort: Pain is typically mild and is relieved by over the counter non-narcotic analgesics. Ibuprofen or Naproxen sodium are typically used.

Little pain: Most people describe a pulling or tight feeling, almost like a sore muscle. It rarely keeps anyone from doing anything. Over the counter pain meds are usually all that is needed, if anything is needed at all.

Vein Laser Symptoms: I suspect you are referring to EVLT laser ablation treatment. Since the vein is initially numb from Novacaine anesthetic, there is usually numbness of the skin for a couple of hours. Then you will have some mild soreness & tenderness of the treated vein (usually inner thigh) for several days. After that, there may be some intermittant aching & tugging sensations at the therapy site for about 1 wk.
