Should I be worried about vericose veins? When should I see a doctor?

Last summer I was having pain in my calf. Ended up being nothing. Exercised and everything and the pain went away.

For the past two months I've been sick and unable to really do any form of exercise. As a result I've started to get some pain behind my knee and at the bottom of my ankle.

The pain is not constant, and i can visually see the veins too. My knees feel tight almost constantly though.

Would cardio help vericose veins? How often should I exercise daily? Is massage a good idea?

I got really scared after reading websites about it hence the questions.

How old are you? Vericose veins can be a sign of things like heart defects, but most of the time it just means you unfortunately have shit genes. Massage doesn't help. There's some debate weather exercise helps, does nothing, or actually makes things worse, but it's generally thought that things like walking are okay but things like weightlifting make them worse. It'd probably be worth it to talk to a general doctor, especially if it keeps hurting, but what they can do usually isn't worth it and you're probably just going to get more as you age.

I should add, even though it's very unlikely, you could have a blood clot. You mentioned being sick and less active, if you've been sitting or laying for long amounts of time it's a possibility. If you have an swelling or discoloration then go to the ER.

I'm 20y male
125lbs 5' 9"

My dad has vericise veins which i think were passed down to me.
I have a pair of compression socks and shorts that seem to help. I'm not sure if i should wear them while sleeping though.

I don't think I have swelling or discoloration yet thank god.

Second bump

I guess my main concern is how I can manage dealing with varicose veins?
Would cycling be a good or bad idea? Is there no way to naturally reverse varicose veins? Would taking low dose aspirin help?
