alan: you assessment may go along with what my surgeon found when looking into my tarsal tunnel and surrounding area. he found a large vericose vein inside the tunnel. if you are exercising (bike,running,walking,etc.) it makes sense a vericose vein would swell to support the increased blood supply. if it is touching or near a nerve then the result could be pain. it may make sense to wear support stockings which are frequently prescribed for vericose veins to see if there is any difference.
