veins popped up?

I've noticed my veins in my hands, legs and feet are protruding above my skin surface. This may sound crazy... they hurt! If I should rub the top of my foot with my other (like I do a lot, RLS) ...I feel like I painfully rolled my veins. Anyone else experience this?

Do your veins hurt?

So there are times that I swear my veins are on fire; I have expressed this to Doctor's in the past and they look at me like I am nuts, or they tell me "you cannot feel your veins, it's just in your head"

Does anyone else experience this? If so what do you do to relieve it, if anything?

Thank you
Angel

I feel this burning sensation mostly in my calves. Sometimes using a heating pad helps. I also take warm Epsom salt baths. Hope you feel better soon!
