Follow up is essential to make sure there is no DVT. Most likely it is what you describe, as injecting into large varicose veins can cause superficial vein thrombophlebitis to occur, especially if there is inadequate compression immediately after the proceure with ace bandages and thereafter with compression hose. I typically drain these with micropuncture techniques in order to minimize hyperpigmentation of the skin which will result as well as more pronounced telangiectasia (telangiectatic matting). I recommend a product called a Phlebitis Pak to my patients and also direct them to use topical creams (VenoQuin and VenoLucent) to prevent the hyperpigmentation.
Clinically, I would advise that you take ibuprofen for pain relief. Contact the vein specialist immediately to be seen for this.
