I received 20mg of Depo medrol ultrasound injection. My question is if my nerve was injected to the median nerve and caused damage would it effect both sides and chest? I've had bulging veins burning pain on fire red when actively using my hands.
No: No, the median nerve supplies the thumb, index, and middle fingers; so even extreme damage to the median nerve would not directly affect the chest. But is possible you had more of a systemic reaction to the steroids you were given, although there are other potential causes as well. I would discuss the specifics of your case with your doctor. ...Read more
Twitching and and pain in calf and back of knee on left leg. Bulging veins in foot as well. Could this be a dvt?

Liver problems, clots in veins and even tumors can lead to vein forming on the abdominal wall. See a vein MD. ...Read more
