While. What is the cause of my bulging neck vein when angry and how can I hide it?

Calm down: Anger causes one to strain, thus increasing the pressure within the chest. This pressure is transmitted to the veins in the chest, and upwards to the head and neck area, resulting in bulging veins, increased redness. A good example is when one sees a singer holding a note, or when a weight lifter strains to hold the barbells. Relax, count to ten taking slow breaths in and out to hide them. ...Read more

Why are my neck veins bulging lol?

Why are my neck veins bulging lol?

Increased pressure: The act of lol results in a valsalva maneuver, where holding of the breath causes increase in the chest pressure. This pressure acts upon the veins in the chest, and is pushed upwards to the head and neck area, resulting in bulging veins. This is a normal situation, so keep on lol; it's good for you. ...Read more

My neck vein above my left collarbone is always very visible almost bulging w/pulse. I've never had this before. What could cause this?

Normal variant?: It's possible that it could be a narrowing of the vein between there and the heart, or a clot in the vein, but either of those would be extremely unlikely in a healthy 20 year old man without a significant surgical history. The more likely cause is that it is just a normal variant. We all have a little abnormality or asymmetry with one thing or another. ...Read more

My 4 yr old daughter has a vein bulging out in her neck. It has gotten worse over time.

My 4 yr old daughter has a vein bulging out in her neck. It has gotten worse over time.

Vein in the Neck: All people have veins in the neck and some are more pronounced in some individuals. Those with little subcutaneous fat in the neck (usually children) can often prominently display these just below the skin (commonly the external jugular). With straining the muscles of the neck they can become more visible. If "congested" and very prominent at rest in a seated position, a check may be warranted. ...Read more

When my 2 year old son cries a vein in his neck seems to bulge out? Is this normal? My doc seemed to fob it off when questioned. 

When my 2 year old son cries a vein in his neck seems to bulge out? Is this normal? My doc seemed to fob it off when questioned. 

Could be: When you cry you increase the pressure inside your chest cavity. That in turn makes it more difficult for blood to flow back to the heart from the head. Think by analogy if you were stepping on a garden hose there would be a "bulging" of the hose behind your foot. Now as to why he is crying so hard, I am not sure and you have to supply more information. ...Read more

I've been noticing both my veins in my neck are permanently bulging even if I don't speak. Is it normal? How can I make it smaller again?

I've been noticing both my veins in my neck are permanently bulging even if I don't speak. Is it normal? How can I make it smaller again?

Normal: Neck veins distend when we lie with our head lower than our heart or when we strain. With straining, the pressure within the chest increases and the blood flow through the neck veins decrease resulting in them enlarging. This is normal. Levels of hydration, genetics, outside temperature and any increase in pressure within the chest will enlarge the neck veins. Your veins seem to be normal. L. ...Read more

I have a large bulge in my left neck vein I have seen a cardio doctor all my test have been good doctor wants blood work done now why would he want to?

Many possibilities: Without having the ability to examine you and have your full records it would be speculation. This may be a rare venous aneurysm or a lesion extrinsic to the vein pushing it out. If so, cardiologist may not know how to evaluate and is shooting blindly in hopes of hitting something. Sounds like you might want to see a good pcp. ...Read more

What causes bulging vein/ artery in neck with visible pulse? Is it a sign I'm too skinny? Or a different underlying condition?

What causes bulging vein/ artery in neck with visible pulse? Is it a sign I'm too skinny? Or a different underlying condition?

Common finding: Many people are thin enough to have easily visible neck veins and arteries. When you are lying down, these vessels are more prominent and the veins often become difficult to see when you are upright. If your vessels are more prominent than normal (a doctor's physical exam is needed), it can be a sign of a more serious vascular condition, but if you are otherwise healthy, that is very unlikely ...Read more

Why does my left neck vein bulge when I'm talking, laughing, lying down, bending down, or just when I'm sitting upright? It's very visible.

Why does my left neck vein bulge when I'm talking, laughing, lying down, bending down, or just when I'm sitting upright? It's very visible.

JVD: Jugular venous distension: most of time is normal in some individuals. The question is whether or not there is something compressing it nearby: sup. Vena cava syndrome or whether or not there is a disease in the heart or lungs that increases the pressure in the venous system (congestive heart failure, pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary emboli, copd, lung cancer. Get checked for lung and heart. ...Read more

My neck veins bulge a lot when I talk, laugh, lie down, or sometimes stand upright. Is this related to heart palpitations or how my neck veins twitch?

Normal variant: As long as you have normal blood pressure and no prior cardiac history, this is most likely a normal variant. If you are having palpitations, make sure you get that checked, that should be unrelated to prominent neck veins. ...Read more

Pulsation can b arterial or venous and 4 the dr 2 differentiate. ...Read more

Neck vein starting just above left collarbone bulges even in resting standing position. Leads to visible pulse where you would chk it. Possible tumor?

Veins are soft to fe: If you place your finger on this area and try to take a feel, you will know if it feels hard, firm or soft. Unless it is firm to hard in feel, it is probably just a normal vein. If you are still unsure and concerned then you need to have your doctor examine you and also check inside your chest with a Chest X-ray to make sure that there is no tumor inside your chest. ...Read more

Left neck vein bulges. Is that left heart failure?

Left neck vein bulges. Is that left heart failure?

Probably not: First, neck vein distension can be caused by many things, only one of which is heart failure. Second, if it were due to heart failure, it would likely be on both sides, and then would reflect problems on the right heart. But since the most common cause of right heart failure is left heart failure, neck vein distension is a sign of heart failure. But not likely in you. Talk to your own doctor. ...Read more

External jugular vein bulges (bubble) a little when I strain my neck and returns to normal when I relax the muscles. No pain/sensation. Is this normal?

Yes: When you Strain your neck you are probably doing a Valsalva maneuver (forceful expiration against a closed mouth). This causes the pressure in the thorax to increase, which results in reduced veinous return to the right atrium and subsequent back up of blood into the internal and external jugular veins. ...Read more

Why do your veins bulge when you're angry?

Change in pressures.: The veins in the face just as the veins in the rest of the body change in size depending on changes in position as well as changes in levels of hydration and changes in pressure in the chest and abdominal cavity. In the face, the veins decrease with standing and increase with lying down. Straining (when angry) can increase the pressure in the chest which can increase the size of the veins. ...Read more
