? Blood Clot: You need a detailed examination from a hand and upper extremity specialist. Bulging veins may signify poor venous drainage from your hand, and this could be due to a variety of reasons, including blood clots, thoracic outlet syndrome - to name two. ...Read more

Blue veins early pregnancy symptoms on hands?

Blue veins early pregnancy symptoms on hands?

Probably not: Hand veins can swell for many reasons but the most common is certainly hereditary . Other factors would be level of hydration, aging, sun exposure loss of elasticity and volume and possibly pregnancies.Actually, I am amazed at the amount of women that i see with bulging hand veins. There is no direct connection between blue hand veins and early pregnancy. ...Read more

I have notice blue veins in my neck right hand side is this normal?

I have notice blue veins in my neck right hand side is this normal?

Yes: Our veins carry blood that has had most of the oxygen removed from it -- that's why it looks blue. We often will notice something about our body that we haven't before -- that is normal. The best way to know if it is OK, is to see your doctor. If you're not worried, and no one else has noted, take a "selfie" of your neck, so you can watch for any change. If there is something, see your Dr. ...Read more

My wife had an IV in her arm and it was removed 3 days ago and now her arm hurts and the back side of her hand has blue veins. Is this normal?

My wife had an IV in her arm and it was removed 3 days ago and now her arm hurts and the back side of her hand has blue veins. Is this normal?

Not necessarily: An IV that has been out for three days shouldn't hurt or be uncomfortable anymore. The presence of distended or darker veins is concerning for a blood clot. If our wife is still in the hospital she should show it to a nurse or her doctor. If she is home she should call her doctor and have it checked out. ...Read more

I'm having blue veins on my breasts, hands , feet , arm and even my tights,been ttc for couple months . Had this symptoms with my son ??? Is it a sign

It is not : It is not a diagnostic indicator of pregnancy. But many women do have enlarged, blue veins on breasts as breasts become larger with pregnancy. If you have missed your period -would go ahead and take a home pregnancy test. Take care. ...Read more

Should i be concerned about the bright blue veins all over my chest, arms, and hands? They are flat. They are not painful. And I am not pregnant.

Should i be concerned about the bright blue veins all over my chest, arms, and hands?  They are flat. They are not painful. And I am not pregnant.

No.: Veins are blue because they carry blood back to the heart and this blood is lower in oxygen then arterial blood which is bright red. Veins will change in size due to many factors including genetics, aging, skin color and texture, levels of hydration and even outside temperature. You should not worry about these veins. ...Read more

Why are blue veins mire visible in breasts feet and hands over last two weeks. Not pregnancy. On period now?

Why are blue veins mire visible in breasts feet and hands over last two weeks. Not pregnancy. On period now?

Normal finding: I am amazed about how often I have women ask me about the veins on their breast. Occasionally they are spider veins but mostly they are blue veins. These are almost always normal findings and normal variations of chest veins. They tend to be more pronounced in fair skinned females and they may be related to hereditary factors, levels of hydration and even temperature changes. ...Read more
