    Varicose veins causing calve swelling?

    I went to my primary care doc over a month ago and she said she didnít think I had varicose veins in my leg. But for the past week my calve has been aching.
    Iím not sure if I did something to my leg or not. Also Iím tryin to figure out if my calve is swollen or not. My left leg is my dominant leg and it is bigger than the other one. I just canít tell if itís swollen or naturally bigger. If your calf is swollen does it feel different than the other one? Is it hard when itís swollen?

    Swelling is usually not hard...its more squishy. Swelling is also usually caused by an accident or injury. Did you bump it?

    Varicose veins can cause swelling, but they are very obvious. There are vein clinics all over the country- usually run by cardiologists- who can take care of them with a laser.
