I don’t know who told you varicose veins happen to inactive people, but they actually usually happen to people who stand for long periods of time. Nurses, teachers and waiters all commonly get varicose veins. There’s also a large genetic component.

Genetics and standing. You may be very susceptible to them and unfortunately always being on your feet made them worse. Sorry about that! If you treat them, get something else fixed on you that requires you off your feet for the same length of time. It's week/s of recovery time depending on how much was removed.

umm do you think 9 hours of exercise a week is alot? thats might be your problem there.
Walking or cycling to work takes me 40 minutes daily
Going to the store means a 5 mile walk
and i work a manual labor job where i lift heavy boxes all day
so i get 10-12 hours of exercise a day

Hang on a second, I have to get out my tiny violin so I can score this "and I walked up hill both ways through six feet of snow barefoot" one-upping.

You are poorly misinformed about varicose veins. You can get them at almost any age, whether or not you’ll get them is largely genetic, and proper hydration can help alleviate them (to an extent).
