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. ...Read more

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: 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. ...Read more

Arteries pulsate.: Arteries pulsate and veins do not. However, if a vein is close to the artery, the pulse of the artery will be transmitted to the vein so the vein will look as if it is pulsating. Certainly eye strain can occur when using a computer leading to headaches. I cannot say if the arterial pulsation has anything to do with the headache. If your symptoms persist then follow up with your medical doctor. ...Read more

What causes bulging veins in left wrist? When raising above head veins go normal when laying them down they bulge again

Bulging Veins: Bulging veins in the hands and wrists are often associated with aging, being thin and well hydrated. When the arms are down the blood in your veins have to work against gravity to return to the heart. When you raise your arms the blood flows with gravity to move more quickly toward the heart. Unlike the arteries which pulse blood, the movement of blood in the veins is more passive. ...Read more

I have a bulging vein on the top left side of my head been there for 3 months and doctor told me it's stress. I'm really concerned as it kinda hurts?

Vein or artery: Are you sure its a vein? If so, this may indicate nothing except that you are well hydrated. It could also mean higher than normal pressures in your chest, but this is unlikely. Given your age, its most likely just developmental. Follow up with your doctor if you remain concerned. If its an artery, it can be due to inflammation and your doctor may suggest some blood work. ...Read more

Weak: Weak pulse and bulging veins in one limb could indicate a serious problem with the blood vessels in that region. Such problems, which include something called arterial dissection and something called venous thrombosis, could threaten the limb or your life. These sort of symptoms should be evaluated right away. Problems with the large arteries and veins in the neck or in a limb are usually first tested with an ultrasound, using a probe placed on the skin. There is usually no discomfort involved. ...Read more
