Often times, people on medications such as aspirin, coumadin, Plavix and Heparin will show signs of bleeding under the skin. ...Read more

Sounds like: some of your symptoms may be related to your fibromyalgia. It does not look like you are taking any medication for this. If you are having swelling/edema in your extremities that can also be a cause for the "burst veins". Varicose veins can also become inflamed, causing your symptoms. I would recommend you see your doctor to have these addressed. There ARE treatments for fibromyalgia! ...Read more

If you had a blood vessel that burst, would you feel it?

You should.: Blood vessels can burst in almost any location. If it is on the surface then you probably will feel some pain followed by evidence of bruising with black and blue marks.

Please tell me, could a burst blood vessel be recurring?

Yes/No: Spider veins in the legs are a common source of spontaneous bleeding, especially when one is heated as with exercise, or taking a hot bath/shower. These can be injected (sclerotherapy) for relief, and more importantly, evaluation of the leg veins with ultrasound is indicated. Should there be axial venous reflux, this can be easily fixed. See www.Phlebology.Org and visit a phlebologist. ...Read more
