My mother is having a heart pain since yesterday and she has varicose veins in the calf muscles. She is not able to stand for very long and getting exhausted very easily. She always complains about having a fast heart beat after every meal. What could be the reason? Does varicose veins has anything to do with this?

There are a few things to be ruled out
One is Deep Vein Thrombosis
Second is Pulmonary Embolism
Third is Coronary artery disease
Initially get an ECG, 2D Echo and bilateral lower limb venous and arterial Doppler done
If that comes out normal further evaluation by CT CAG would be best to rule out both CAD and PE
