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

Bulging Veins

Wrist_pain
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.

Dr. James H. Isobe answered:

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

Calm down

Anger
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.

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.

Bulging veins on top of hands cause?

Swollen hand veins.

Img_0512
Hand veins can swell for many reasons but the most common is certainly hereditary . Other factors would be level of hydration, aging, sun exposure and loss of elasticity and volume. Actually, i am amazed at the amount of women that I see with bulging hand veins. They can be easily treated with laser or sclerotherapy and usually a combination of both.

Dr. Suzanne Jones answered:

Unslightly bulging veins on hands-what's the cause?

Probably normal

Veins
Usually, these are just normal veins. If they shrink when the hand is raised, don't hurt, & are soft, there is most likely no problem. If there is swelling of the arm, pain, redness, or the veins are firm, further evaluation should be done for clot or infection. They can be treated with sclerotherapy to improve appearance if desired.
