Inner thigh and calf pain from possible varicose veins

Lately I’ve notice veins on my inner calf bulging out where I can feel them on my skin and they somewhat twist... as well as being able to feel my femoral vein running down my inner thigh to my knee cap, which I’m not sure if it’s normal to be able to feel that vein on the skin or not. But I’ve been having inner thigh pain and calf pain when I walk. Is this a serious issue or just common with varicose veins? I’m thinking about seeing my PC doc.

Hello, sorry about he delay in answering your question.  Inner thigh pain and groin pain are common with varicose veins.  Also, calf pain is included in that.  Please see your doctor if you have not already.  Let us know if you have seen them and what they have said.
