Can Varicose Veins Cause Calf Pain?

Varicose veins are a disease that develops when a vein valve fails. They swell and become enlarged, often turning dark purple and taking on a bulging appearance. Since veins carry blood towards your heart, a failing vein means that you can develop problems in your extremities. However, varicose veins don’t always produce visible signs. In these instances, the varicose veins are deep inside of your body, making it impossible to see them.
