To treat these you must first undergo a venous reflux ultrasound to make the diagnosis and determine the proper treatment.

NO: All "bulging veins" are not varicose veins. Some bulgy veins are functioning normally. Common examples of such normal veins include prominent veins on the front of the shin bone or enlarged bulging veins on thin athletes or bodybuilders. In order for a vein to be classified as varicose, it must be not only dilated but also have diseased faulty broken valves within it that is causing blood to pool ...Read more
Change in pressures.: The veins in 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.

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

Abdominal wall veins: Bulging abdominal wall veins are abnormal and the cause is usually due to a blocked vein in another location such as the pelvis. The veins that form on the abdominal wall are called collateral veins and are alternative channels for the blood to flow when the main channels are compromised. Liver problems, clots in veins and even tumors can lead to vein forming on the abdominal wall. See a vein MD. ...Read more
I'm 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.

It looks like the vein pulsating because the vein sits over the artery and can move with the artery. ...Read more
