Blood vessels

I have enlarged veins in my fingers and feet, and additional veins keep popping up, like alternative blood routes are being created.  At times I have severe pain and burning when this happens.  Any idea what this can be?  What kind of doctor should be seen for this?

Hi
Welcome to the forum!
The engorged veins can be a normal finding. However since you have a burning sensation, it is possible that you have deep vein thrombosis or clots or faulty valves of deep veins. Hence peripheral vascular pathologies have to be ruled out either by angiograms or by dopplar studies. You need to consult a vascular specialist regarding this.
Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
