Do varicose veins hurt?

I think I am starting to develop them all over my legs during this pregnancy, but some of them are red (particularly the ones around my ankles) and the others are blackish, like almost bruised looking. None of them are uncomfortable except for this new one that just happened to show up this week and it is on the center of my calf. It is a similar feeling to getting a shot, that stinging sensation. My next Dr. appt is Monday so i'm holding off until then but just wanted to ask anyone who may have experience with these.

  • I have many and they do not hurt. But some probably do hurt like you mentioned. Talk to Dr and see what can be done. Best wishes with the baby!
