Hi Mitchell's Plain,
From the viewpoint of the viewer's response to your question, it would be safe to see a specialist to have the varicose vein confirmed. Many times, varicose veins are inherited. They only become painful when they become inflammed from some sort of damage. I would suggest that you see a specialist because it is highly unusual, if it was a vein, to be this painful.
