Let your symptoms be your guide and if they get worse as time progresses, such as more warmth or discomfort, it is worth having a consultation.

Counter pressure when you engage your core or with strenuous exercises such as squats will transiently increase the pressure in the veins in the lower extremities. This causes blood to accumulate in the more superficial veins (ones just below the surface of the skin). Sometimes these veins are functioning appropriately, and other times it may warrant evaluation.
