I am experiencing lots of burning, tightening and sharp pains

This answer was rated:

I am experiencing lots of burning, tightening and sharp pains in my legs at different areas when walking and sometimes when sitting. Sometimes it feels deep within my leg, sometimes it feels just under the surface. I have noticed it seems to be worse in the last couple of months. I am about 4st overweight and have been for many years. I am 38 and female.
Is this normal varicose vein type pain?
I have some red spider veins on both legs and one lumpy green vein on one leg.
Not necessarily.
You might have a lower back disc /spine problem.
You also need to be examined to make sure you have no blood clotting.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
