Got a varicose vain on my calf that I've had for years now that first became apparent when I was in 12th grade. It didn't give me any problems up until about 5 years ago where since then I experience some discomforting pain on and off. Its not even visible when sitting down but standing up or walking itll show.
Lately I've been giving a compression sock a try but I don't even know if its making a difference but to be fair I'm not very consistent with wearing it because I forget all the time to put it on before I go out.
Anywho, has anyone here ever had this issue and found a diy solution. I don't want to have to get surgery since I have shitty insurance and iirc the surgery usually doesn't resolve the issue and can even make it worse
Picrel is an example close to how mine looks
