Nerves irritated: The nerves in the foot are being compressed. The fact that you mention the veins stand out means they are probably swollen (engorged) and can compress. Get checked. An ultrasound may be ordered to check the blood flow to the legs. Consider having your back checked too. Nerves in the feet stem from there and changes in back position can sometimes contribute to pain distally in the feet. ...Read more
