Leg : Leg symptoms that increase with standing (swelling, itching, bulging veins, pain, and--possibly--welts as you describe) suggest a problem with blood flow out of the leg. Blood gets back to the heart, against gravity, because of the pumping action of the leg veins. The system requires three things: muscle contractions, one-way valves in the veins, and an open channel for blood to flow through. Of these, the most piece that fails most often is the valves. When they let blood flow the wrong way, down the leg, you get the symptoms listed above. The best way to sort this out is to have your legs evaluated with ultrasound. An ultrasound study is really the only way to know whether the valves are working normally and whether there's some kind of blockage. ...Read more
