It sounds like you need a vein consultation for advanced vein disease.
There are many minimally invasive treatment options that could be helpful
in treating the underlying causes of your vein disease. An accurate
diagnosis is essential, though , before coming up with a treatment plan.

If you have bad veins combined with feelings of restless leg, you should be evaluated by a surgeon specializing in vein disease. Often there can be underlying valve insufficiency in the saphenous system which causes blood to "pool" in the lower legs. When you elevate your legs at night they legs "drain" and the nerves and muscles can be twitchy, painful and restless.
We find, in our practice, that wearing medical grade compression (20-30mmHg or above) can alleviate this symptom. These should be prescription, measure by a certified fitter early in the day.
The most important thing is to get a full evaluation including ultrasound examination. Insurance will pay for this with symptoms.

The legs "giving out" is a difficult one to answer. In regards to the
bleeding veins and restless legs, these are often completely improved after
treatment of the underlying insufficiency or leaky veins. If your legs give
out because of pain or aching, these symptoms may very well be directly
related to your insufficiency if you have serum building up in your skin,
fat and muscles in the legs. If your legs feel better in the morning and
are smaller in size in the morning and your legs feel progressively worse by
the end of the day this pattern of symptoms is also consistent with leaky
veins or venous insufficiency. I would suggest you find a well trained
qualified vein specialist and schedule a consult with them. You should be
asked to wear shorts or be offered a pair of shorts for your exam. Odd as
it may seem, just today 3 of the 15 new patients seen in my practice for the
above symptoms had seen other vein specialists and had never had their "legs
examined" before they were told they did not have a vein problem. All 3 had
severe venous insufficiency on my exam and I am confident ultrasound
evaluation will further define their anatomy and we will have >95% chance of
helping them.
