I have a pain along the left vein in my neck for 4 days now with out increase in pain. It feels similar to swollen gland and I have no other symptoms.

Neck pain: Pain in that area could be from a muscle strain, inflamed thyroid or lymph gland, or inflammation of the carotid artery. I don't think it's related to a neck vein. If the discomfort persists, get examined by your physician. ...Read more

Should I worry about veins in my neck?

Should I worry about veins in my neck?

Normal: Neck veins distend when we lie with our head lower than our heart or when we strain. With straining, the pressure within the chest increases and the blood flow through the neck veins decrease resulting in them enlarging. This is normal. Levels of hydration, genetics, outside temperature and any increase in pressure within the chest will enlarge the neck veins. Your veins are most likely normal. ...Read more

I'm young & healthy. Noticed the veins in my neck and left cheek and forhead are all now visible (never noticed before)worried...could it be anxiety?

No need to worry: Visible veins are not a cause for concern. You may wish to consult a doctor for anxiety, not the veins.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Veins in my neck and chest are very visible, this is a new thing. Also, I am experiencing a lot of neck pain and headaches since last night. Thoughts?

Veins in my neck and chest are very visible, this is a new thing. Also, I am experiencing a lot of neck pain and headaches since last night. Thoughts?

Should check it out: This does not sound normal. Although u r a bit on the young side, the superior vena cava syndrome--blockage of the large vein that returns blood to the heart. Thus obstruction of the vein results in swelling of the head/neck/face/chest etc...Of course starting out as distended veins, headache, shortness of breath, arm swelling etc... If this does not get better tomorrow, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

I have notice blue veins in my neck right hand side is this normal?

I have notice blue veins in my neck right hand side is this normal?

Yes: Our veins carry blood that has had most of the oxygen removed from it -- that's why it looks blue. We often will notice something about our body that we haven't before -- that is normal. The best way to know if it is OK, is to see your doctor. If you're not worried, and no one else has noted, take a "selfie" of your neck, so you can watch for any change. If there is something, see your Dr. ...Read more

When I blink my left eye, the veins in my neck on the left side twitch. Is this something to worry about?

When I blink my left eye, the veins in my neck on the left side twitch. Is this something to worry about?

Blink your left eye?: When most people blink, they blink both eyes at once. "Blinking" one eye at a time is a voluntary act that is usually called a "wink, " not a blink. You live in Texas & your English seems good, so I assume you aren't just misusing a word. Your post is confusing. Please repeat it with clarifications. ...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

Very stressed/overwhelmed lately, right neck vein bulges and feels like it's gonna explode. I try to calm down n it feels soar. How do I relax?

De-stressing: You can try massage, or shopping spree. Or if you were me, a musical concert (classical or symphonic, not hard rock or metal) and a glass of wine in the evenings. Good luck. ...Read more

I have had a headache for about 4 days now and yesterday I also started experiencing pain in what feels like the vein on the right side of my neck.

Possibly migraine: It is not common to have a headache that lasts for 4 days. Migraine headaches which often cause throbbing pain could last this long. Migraines are vascular headaches and could potentially cause pain in other blood vessels. For more info see: http://understandingmigraine. Blogspot. Com/. If this is not usual for you, you should be evaluated by a doctor to determine the cause and get treatment. ...Read more
