Suggest consult: I would suggest consulting your PCP on this; it sounds like you may have a venous blockage resulting in this.

Among other causes, prominent veins can be caused by various stages of dehydration. Consult your doctor so he/she can correlate this sign with the appropriate blood work and a full history & physical.
