I have swollen blood vessels when  hands are hanging, if I hold them above  the chest level, they look normal.Is it normal?

Probably: Blood pumped by the heart goes to the hand in arteries and comes back in the veins, which have no pump. Veins have a thin wall and are easily distended. Gravity pulls the blood down, distending the veins. Lifting the arms pulls blood back to the heart and the veins shrink. Further tests would be needed if arm elevation did not empty the veins. ...Read more

Radiologist: In such cases I believe it's the responsibility of the primary care physician to sit down with the radiologist who interpreted the xray and review the findings, and get a differential diagnosis from the radiologist and then the two of them conclude whether further imaging studies such as a ct scan is advisable. After such consultation with the radiologist your physician will be able to advise you. ...Read more

Really intense cough: All the parts of your body are connected so if you have a really intense cough it is not surprising that you feel it rattling other parts of your body. Now the question is why are you coughing so intensely. I obviously don't know what is causing the cough. It could be an infectious process, an allergic one or something else. You should see your doc ASAP and get a work up. ...Read more

These are almost always normal findings and normal variations of chest veins.
