I have very painful veins in the bend of my left knee. It normally doesn't hurt much unless I do a lot of stairs and activity. I am over weight but working on loosing it. I recently moved into a new house that has 14 steps going into the house. After a weekend of carrying the boxes up the stairs, I can hardly walk! It is so painful in my left leg I can hardly bare it. When I do to bed my leg aches terribly and I can't sleep. It has been 3 days now and it is getting better since I am not doing much but going to work and resting when I get home. Does any one know how to relieve vein pain?
