There : Must be a misunderstanding of terminology. Veins, and I have no idea what you may call veins, do not hurt. Even when there is a blood clot in them it is the surrounding inflamed tissue(s) that hurt and not the vein itself. In the leg bulging veins may hurt but is distension of the skin that is painful. So I do not have a satisfying response for u. Sorry!

What causes vein in arm to pop out and hurt?

Multiple reasons: Veins return blood back to the heart and can carry a large volume of blood. Depending on many factors including levels of hydration, genetics, outside temperature and even physical activity, the size of the veins will vary. Another important function of the veins is to help control body temperature and this too will affect vein size. Also with aging, veins enlarge as tissue volume decreases.
