Not due to veins.: Your symptoms of pins and needles and tight chest have nothing to do with your varicose veins. You should first have the tight chest symptoms evaluated by a cardiologist to rule out any cardiac disease. A neurologist can evaluate your nerve symptoms and a vein specialist an evaluate your varicose veins.
