You : You need to be seen and have an ultrasound (vascular study) on your leg to be sure you don't have a blood clot, which can be fatal. If you don't have a blood clot, you can use compression stockings and medications such as advil (ibuprofen) for the discomfort. There are procedures that can fix varicose veins. However, please be sure immediately that you don't have a clot in your leg.
