Varicose veins pain

Hi I have small bluish spider veins in legs for a long time. Since last one year my legs have been experiencing increasing pain and fatigue. Esp around my periods the leg pain increases. Went to a vascular surgeon who diagnosed it as chronic venous insufficiency. Gave me daflon and radlin for a month. And wear compression stockings. I have started wearing compression stockings and the pain is reduced now. But I have not yet started taking daflon or radlin. Please advise how safe these medicines are and if they will really help with thigh pain and stiffness that comes from time to time or from exertion. What else can I try. Any alternative medicines. I am not keen on taking too many medicines as I already suffer from acidity and gastric problems. Thanks.
