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

Leg pain: some symptoms that she will are describing are not consistent with varicose vein issues, specifically the tingling and numbness. These symptoms are more suggestive of a nerve compression and also may be the issue of the pain shooting down the leg. I would recommend that she will seek evaluation by your physician to determine the appropriate specialty that she evaluate this problem. ...Read more

Well,: Short of closing them or best removing them there is nothing you can do. I dislike injections as it takes long time to clear them up besides `i have seen residual ugly pigmentation. I remove them with tiny skin openings and hook. One single session in local anesthesia.
Excellent results. I do this since 1995! ...Read more

Not bad: It's unfortunate that you had this reaction, but I doubt that anything bad will happen. Don't worry about the bulging veins unless they get much worse or painful. If you are worried about heart attacks please stop smoking. ...Read more

I received 20mg of Depo medrol ultrasound injection. My question is if my nerve was injected to the median nerve and caused damage would it effect both sides and chest? I've had bulging veins burning pain on fire red when actively using my hands.

I received 20mg of Depo medrol ultrasound injection. My question is if my nerve was injected to the median nerve and caused damage would it effect both sides and chest?  I've had bulging veins burning pain on fire red when actively using my hands.

No: No, the median nerve supplies the thumb, index, and middle fingers; so even extreme damage to the median nerve would not directly affect the chest. But is possible you had more of a systemic reaction to the steroids you were given, although there are other potential causes as well. I would discuss the specifics of your case with your doctor. ...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

I can feel a bulging vein or artery on my temples and when I feel them they pulsate. Not that visible unless I stretch my skin. Slight headaches.

I can feel a bulging vein or artery on my temples and when I feel them they pulsate. Not that visible unless I stretch my skin. Slight headaches.

Normal finding: 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

I am 21, I am having a buldging pulsating vein on my left temple with headache and eye pain. I use computers alot. I had severe headache last night.

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

Headache every day 9 days after delivery. Is this from my epidural? I got it twice bc it went into vein first time. Will headache go away on its own?

Headache every day 9 days after delivery. Is this from my epidural? I got it twice bc it went into vein first time. Will headache go away on its own?

Maybe: Sometimes after the placement of an epidural, spinal fluid can leak out of your back. This decreases the pressure and gives you a headache. This headache will be worse when you are upright and improved when laying down. It will frequently go away after a couple of weeks. If it doesn't, you may need treatment. There are other causes of a headache after delivery so let your doctor know. ...Read more

Will bulging disc in c6&c7 cause horrible headaches 24 7. I have mgraines but this 1000 times worse?

Possible: Neck issues can cause headaches of different severity however, if these headaches are worse than migraines, I would make sure your physician is aware of the pain. Other medical conditions need to be ruled out and you need to inquire about receiving a CT or/and MRI of the head. I would not blame these headaches on the neck disc unless you already have had an adequate headache work up. Good luck ...Read more

My veins are popping out occasionally it's usually when i have headaches which is been very constant from past few months. Is this normal?

No: If it pulsates, it is an artery which may be associated with a migraine attack. However, migraine is not something which stays with you for a few months. I think it is only prudent for you to consult a doctor. ...Read more

Nasal veins: Nasal veins are very common and there are mutiple options for treatment including sclerotherapy, ipl, laser, veinwave, veingogh and micro needle radio frequency. The size of the veins and the training and experience of the treating physician usually influence what treatment is recommended. My usual treatment is sclerotherapy or laser for very small veins. You should see a vein specialist. ...Read more
