Leg pain

My leg is a little swollen and it hurts. It hurts more when I move it a certain way. Also the veins are more noticable in that leg. What can it be?

Could you have sprained it? Is the leg red and hot? If so possible cellulitis or an infection.

Do you have varicose veins by chance? If so and your leg is hot to touch and the pain is real bad, I would ask a doctor about it, could be what I get. Phlebitis, warm compresses usually help me
