This evening a terrible long "bruise" showed up on my leg. It looks like the sort of veins you usually see in your arms, but this suddenly popped up down my right leg along a vein. It is about 7"-8" in length. I am a healthy 28 yr old woman. I know you are not my doctor- but does anyone know what this could be. Should I be concerned?
This is a picture but it is a little hard to see.

A few things that could possibly be relevant:
- I did heavy-ish squats the last two days and my legs are starting to get sore
- I took 2 ibuprofen pills this morning
- I had a glass of wine this evening
- I noticed it when I got out of a hot shower
- I bruise pretty easily
Any thoughts? When I try to google it all that comes up is varicose veins and aneurisms.
