I have a light bruise along a vein in my arm. The area hasn't experienced any trauma, should I be worried?
Bruise along vein: Keep an eye on it. It is not very common to have problems with the veins in the arms. Spontaneous blood clots in the arms are very rare in the absence of trauma. Phlebitis (vein inflammation) in the arms is also rare. If not swollen, red or painful, and if you don't have fevers or any other symptoms, just watch it. If it gets worse or you have bleeding other places, see a doctor. ...Read more

I have a vein on the inside part of my arm that's causing pain and bruising. You can follow the vein and as youfollow it there is bruising?

Have a doctor check if it doesn't go away. ...Read more

Unknown: Twenties male inquires how ehlers-danlos (eds) disorder causes paroxysmal orthostatic tachycardia (pots). I do not think there is official explanation.

My own theory is joint hypermobility of eds stimulates autonomic nerves within brachial & pelvic plexi; causing arterial muscle relaxation, blood pooling, vascular collapse & tachycardia. ...Read more
