Question:

why does the vascular vein in my left leg is sticking out more. and its always in alot of pain. sometimes i can`t feel that leg.

Answer:

You likely have a varicose vein caused by venous insufficiency or problems with the thin valves in the veins. I would suggest a pair of compression stockings.
