Your legs may get swollen if you have varicose veins because Varicose veins are associated with a condition called venous insufficiency which  causes a build up of back pressure within your veins at the ankle and high pressure in those veins. This causes fluid within your veins to seep out into the surrounding tissues which manifests as "swelling". This condition can be easily diagnosed using an ultrasound scan and can often be treated by a special type of compression stockings or minimally invasive out patient procedures. Left untreated this condition may progress to more severe presentations with pigmentation or ulceration of skin at the level of the ankle. Please discuss this with your doctor on your next visit.
