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

Bursted vein in arm, is it okay?

Bursted vein in arm, is it okay?

It is ok.: Trauma to an area will many times cause a vein to be injured and burst resulting in bleedind from the vein into the surrounding tissues resulting in a black and blue mark. This is called ecchymosis. Over a week or so this will slowly resolve. This is a normal occurrence. If, however, you have recurrent spontaneous bleeding without trauma then you should see a hematologist. Read more

What causes vein in arm to pop out and hurt?

What causes vein in arm to pop out and hurt?

Multiple reasons: Veins return blood back to the heart and can carry a large volume of blood. Depending on many factors including levels of hydration, genetics, outside temperature and even physical activity, the size of the veins will vary. Another important function of the veins is to help control body temperature and this too will affect vein size. Also with aging, veins enlarge as tissue volume decreases. Read more

Why is it that after I had a bloodtest in my arm I started to feel the vein move?

Why is it that after I had a bloodtest in my arm I started to feel the vein move?

Phebitis: In order to draw blood, the vein was entered with the needle. This local trauma by the needle can make the vein irritated...Phlebitis. A small blood clot or thrombosis could also be at the site. Leak of blood around the site can also cause a small hematoma. Treat with NSAID meds like aleve (naproxen) and heating pad or warm moist heat. If the pain progresses, seek physician review. Read more

How to get more noticible veins in arm area?

Do you want more?: If you want to see more veins, people with low body fat who lift weights seem to dilate their blood vessels more over time so you can see them, as well as long distance runners where gravity plays a role. If you want to hide or slow down the progression of noticeable veins- some people use compression sleeves while running or lifting weights to control the dilatation. Read more

My veins in my arm hurt after I've been cold. Why does this happen?

My veins in my arm hurt after I've been cold. Why does this happen?

There: Must be a misunderstanding of terminology. Veins, and I have no idea what you may call veins, do not hurt. Even when there is a blood clot in them it is the surrounding inflamed tissue (s) that hurt and not the vein itself. In the leg bulging veins may hurt but is distension of the skin that is painful. So I do not have a satisfying response for u. Sorry! Read more

Why do I feel that my vein from my left arm hurt, what does it mean?

Why do I feel that my vein from my left arm hurt, what does it mean?

Arm vein pain: You are not too descriptive of what vein location or whether your arm is swollen. Local inflammation is constant, warm and painful. Musculoskeletal structures near veins can produce intermittent pin prick sensations with motion. Blockage of the vein entering the shoulder can cause swelling and pain due to repetitive effort like pitching (padget-schroeder syndrome) and is serious. See your doctor. Read more

In my arm where my veins are its painful when I move. I just want to know why does it hurt?

In my arm where my veins are its painful when I move. I just want to know why does it hurt?

This is a little: Difficult to sort out without talking with you in person. It would be very unusual for vein problems to be causing pain in your arm. Much more likely the muscle underneath is sore but what you can see is the veins. The pain most likely if from a strain/overuse: lifting, carrying, playing arm-related sports, etc. Put an ice bag (of peas!) over the sore spot; talk to your Doctor if persists:) Read more
