Increased pressure: The act of lol results in a valsalva maneuver, where holding of the breath causes increase in the chest pressure. This pressure acts upon the veins in the chest, and is pushed upwards to the head and neck area, resulting in bulging veins.

Why does my left neck vein bulge when i'm talking, laughing, lying down, bending down, or just when i'm sitting upright? It's very visible.

JVD: Jugular venous distension: most of time is normal in some individuals. The question is whether or not there is something compressing it nearby: sup.

My neck veins bulge a lot when i talk, laugh, lie down, or sometimes stand upright. Is this related to heart palpitations or how my neck veins twitch?

Normal variant: As long as you have normal blood pressure and no prior cardiac history, this is most likely a normal variant. If you are having palpitations, make sure you get that checked, that should be unrelated to prominent neck veins. ...Read more

Left neck vein bulges. Is that left heart failure?

Left neck vein bulges. Is that left heart failure?

Probably not: First, neck vein distension can be caused by many things, only one of which is heart failure. Second, if it were due to heart failure, it would likely be on both sides, and then would reflect problems on the right heart. But since the most common cause of right heart failure is left heart failure, neck vein distension is a sign of heart failure. But not likely in you. Talk to your own doctor. ...Read more

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

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

Calm down: 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. ...Read more

My neck vein above my left collarbone is always very visible almost bulging w/pulse. I've never had this before. What could cause this ?

Normal variant?: It's possible that it could be a narrowing of the vein between there and the heart, or a clot in the vein, but either of those would be extremely unlikely in a healthy 20 year old man without a significant surgical history. The more likely cause is that it is just a normal variant. We all have a little abnormality or asymmetry with one thing or another. ...Read more
