In brief: Exercise

The keys to minimizing varicose veins are exercise to keep the muscular vein pump of the leg working, elevation to decrease swelling, and support or compression hose to decrease vein size and provide counterpressure.

In brief: See vein specialist

I would see a vein specialist fopr evaluation of your varicose veins.
However, you might get some relief by elevating your leg(s) intermittently, getting up and walking around fairly frequently, and also wearing compression stockings. This may provide you with some relief until you can be evaluated.

In brief: Choices

Injections are an option, surgery and laser treatments are other options.
Your choices will depend on the reasons you have these veins. See a vascular surgeon or plastic surgeon to discuss your options.
