Veins bulging out and pulsating in right temple. Serious? Reason?

Not Sure

Veins
Prominent veins on the temple is common and not serious. It tends to run in families. They are more visible in fit people with fair skin. It is unusual for them to pulsate. I would recommend that you get it checked by a doctor especially if it is associated with a headache.

2yrs. ago had Craniotomy & the last couple headaches there has been a bulging vein on left side starting just above temple down to ear?

Worth Checking Out

Veins
This is probably OK. It is very common to have bulging veins with headaches. However, depending on why you had the craniotomy and exactly where the vein is and what it looks like, there is a small chance that you need additional evaluation. The best bet is to talk to your primary doctor, neurologist, or the surgeon who did the craniotomy.

I'm on BP meds..last few days having severe migraines and bulging veins in my temple area my eyes feel like they're shaking is this BP related?

USUALLY NOT

Assuming that your BP is either under control or minimally elevated, you are not having migraines due to hypertension, but you may be experiencing side effects to you meds. Migraines can be prevented, and would recommend that approach, as triptans, which stop headaches could well raise BP.

Dr. John Landi answered:

What could cause a large vein to bulge in my temple of my head?

Positional change.

Head
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 or laughing increase the the pressure in the chest which can increase the size of the facial veins.

Im 18 years old and i have bulging veins on my temples.They pulsate and i have been very anxious that this is serious. No pain when i touch them.

Arteries throb.

The temporal arteries and temporal veins lie immediately adjacent to each other. During exercise or increased activity, the arteries will pulsate because of increased heart rate and flow of blood. What you are seeing is the arterial pulsation. It looks like the vein pulsating because the vein sits over the artery and can move with the artery.

Unlikely

Your veins may be promonent in your temple area, but that does not mean that you have TA which is very rare at your age
