Bruises: If there has been no trauma to these areas you may be dealing with spontaneous bleeding into the skin caused by bone marrow pathology including amyloidosis, liver disease, vitamin K deficiency or kidney disease. I recommend consulting a hematologist so that appropriate testing will be done.

Multiple new veins: It is difficult to give a diagnosis based on your description. I would recommend seeing either an internist or hematologist for an evaluation and proper blood work. Depending on those results a recommendation can be made.

Doctor can evaluate: If finger muscle twitching lasts only a day, there may not be a problem. If symptoms recur, or if one's hand is numb, weak, swollen, or discolored, there may be too much pressure (constriction or swelling) inside the wrist. If so, one should see a primary care doctor or a hand surgeon, in case quick treatment is needed to prevent nerve damage at the wrist. Pregnancy often causes hands to swell.

See your doc: I would recommend and ultrasound of the pelvis and possibly abdomen. Maybe some blood tests also. If the pain becomes severe or gets worse, go to the er as it could be appendicitis.

Consult physician: As you can imagine there are several causes for your symptoms, some severe and some not severe. But a physician needs to see you to question you about them and perform a physical examination. Test may/may not be ordered according to the physician's impression, but most of the time he/she will do. Good luck!
