Could inflamation: When veins get darker this means the stay longer in the leg, the circulation slow than normal, this could lead to superficial phlebitis or deep phlebitis? Check with your dr.

Phlebitis: A varicose vein that has been traumatized can become inflamed and hurt. Important to evaluate the underlying cause.
