Ok.

There are many causes of pain on top of foot including varicose vein. Other includes trauma, use of ill fitting shoes, obesity, gout , osteoarthritis,seasamoiditis and metatarsalgia.
My advice for you is to use a painkiller like dicloran or naproxen sodium.
Take a consultation to a orthopedic regarding pain foot. So that he could have a look on it and may advice cetain tests. An x ray of foot may also be require some time.
Regarding varicose vein you need to visit a general surgeon to get evaluated. So that he could plan appropriate treatment.

I hope I answer your question and it is informative for you. If you need a detail information regarding treatment option of varicose vein I can help you. Thanks
