Bobby, usually it’s nothing serious. It might due to heat or just because you’ve been on your feet too long. The problem is that it might also be due to something more serious like high blood pressure, kidney or liver problems, thrombosis, etc. this is why the best would be to pay your doctor a visit and to have him make sure that it’s nothing serious. Good luck.
