It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see a doctor, preferably a rheumatologist. Wish you good health!

Venous insufficiency of the legs is diagnosed with an ultrasound. On the other hand vasculitis is best looked for by a rheumatologist who will take a thorough history & system review and then order appropriate testing in order to make an accurate diagnosis.
