Yes: Varicose veins are dilated and stretch the walls of the veins leading to an achy discomfort. They may also be a sign of increased venous pressure, causing pooling of fluid in the legs. Compression can help.

Could be.: Varicose veins cause many symptoms including aching, cramping, heaviness, tiredness, itching and restless legs. Pain can occur from varicose veins but it usually occurs if the veins are inflammed or clotted (superficial phlebitis). You should see a vein specialist for a full venous evaluation with a venous ultrasound exam.

Could be: Varicose veins typically cause aching, throbbing pain when standing. Legs can feel heavy and 'tired'. You may notice swelling at the end of the day. Iam assuming thatyour pain is in your legs.I suggest you see a phlebologist(vein specialist).
