Accidental Injection Into Vein
I take kineret (anakinra) injections sub-cu.I didn't notice that i accidentally hit & possibly injected the med into a vein until i was finished.Advice?
Ignore it: I doubt you injected it into a vein. It is more likely that the needle passed through a small vein and caused some bleeding. If nothing has happened by now, nothing will. ...Read more
Vascular/Phlebology/Sclerotherapy: Generally, how likely is it that an injection into leg spider veins accidently pierces a close artery? Then what?
An actual artery: isn't likely to be injected. And, the solutions used to treat spider veins are weak and might not damage an artery. However, very small arteries - called "arterioles" - commonly communicate with spider veins. Arteriole pressure usually prevents the solution from entering, but if it does, a small wound ("cutaneous necrosis") may occur which heals very slowly. Good technique lowers this risk. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

No: Many mistakenly believe this but it is actually exactly the opposite of what really happens. It is safe to say that treating your veins now will help to prevent you from developing as much new vein trouble as you would have done otherwise without treatment. Unfortunately, though, nothing can guarantee that no new veins will ever show up in your lifetime even after effective treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

When i abused heroin 3years ago, right after the IV injection, my veins on my right bicep went totally red. It was thick red lines. What happend?
This is simple,: As the substance and possible the impurities within induced and irritation / injury of the inner lining of the vein.

Had an IV in from the hospital they "caught" my vein and the injection site very swollen now 3 months later there are lumps higher up the vein is this?
Superficial clot.: Occasionally following an IV insertion, the vein can become irritated from the IV solution and form a clot. This is called superficial phlebitis and is not dangerous. The clot does not move but it is easily felt and sometimes painful. Initial treatment is a warm compress. If the clot is painful then it can be surgically removed under local anesthesia but this rarely needs to be done. ...Read more

There is no downtime from sclerotherapy on the nose or face other than possibly some bruising. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Is having an injection a good remedy for vericose.I ve had an operation 10 years ago and nw on d same leg aside of d operated areas, vericose veins.
Could be.: Injection ("sclerotherapy") of varicose veins can work well. Your doctor should check to make sure your underlying veins are normal first. Also, if the veins are very large (say, as big as your finger), you may actually heal faster if the veins are just removed ("phlebectomy"), but your doctor can answer that question better by examining you. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Not very long: Sclerotherapy works by causing inflammation. As a result, you will probably have some discomfort afterwards. You can get a sort itchy, stingy feeling for about 20 minutes afterwards and then a tender, bruised feeling for a couple of days. None of this is likely to keep you from doing anything but Ibuprofen helps. Wearing compression stockings afterwards usually helps too. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Phlebitis: You probably have a local vein inflammation called phlebitis. Ice 20 minutes twice a day for one or two weeks often helps calm it down sooner. Also for 7-14 days take an over the counter anti-inflammatory like Ibuprofen (2-3 200 mg tablets 3 times a day) or Naproxen (220 mg tablets 1-2 twice a day). If not better or improving, see your primary care doctor. ...Read more
