On my left side on neck the vein pops out, why?

Normal: Neck veins distend when we lie with our head lower than our heart or when we strain.

Jugular: The most prominent vein in the neck is the jugular vein that drains into the chest and then the heart via the superior vena cava...As it is in such close proximitry to the heart it will reflect the strength of the heart..In halation will make the vein collapse while straining wil produc ehte opposite effect. ...Read more
