no numbness - no observed discoloration that I have seen. Legs don't hurt while resting or sitting -- just when I get up and start to move -- muscles feel tight and I have trouble walking until I am able to stretch out muscles.
Related to diagnosis - as soon as I mentioned leg pain - with many questions - dr said he wanted to do ultrasound on legs because he thought it was vein issue - ultasound showed that veins were leaky backwards - so they put in to my insurance to do a procedure that goes into the damaged veins and shuts them down - but my legs really hurt and everything I read about varicose veins, etc. is there may be some pain but that isn't primary.
