Could this be from poor circulation?

My primary exercise is walking, I walk at least 20 minutes a day if not more. I have very heavy legs, and while my upper body is fairly slim, I can't seem to make my hips, calves, ankles, and especially thighs much smaller. I just recently noticed all the veins that are popping out all over, there are thick black ones, tiny red ones, I'm not sure if it's bad circulation or not. Also, if I stretch my legs I get really bad Charlie horses especially in my calves, but occasionally in my thighs. I haven't asked a doctor about this, but if it does sound like a circulation problem, what can I do? I don't smoke or drink, I don't have any cholesteral or blood pressure problems, it just seems abnormal to me :confused:. Thanks for any advice!
