In the back left of my head I feel a vein pulsing quickly, much faster than my heartbeat for 10-15 sec. 2-3x a day for the past 3 days. What is it?

Not a vessel: A blood vessel (either vein or artery) cannot pulsate any more quickly than your heart. So what you are experiencing is more likely a muscle twitching or spasm. Yes, there are muscles in the back of the head- try raising your eyebrows, and you will likely feel the back of your head tightening too. This is not likely worrisome, but if it persists, call your primary doctor. ...Read more

I have a throbbing vein on the left side of my forehead, what are the causes, should I be worried?

Likely tension headache: Most of the time when you have a throbbing area near the temple it's likely due to a migraine or tension headache. However, if the temple is very tender to the touch then we will be worried about something called giant cell arteritis. Are you having any numbness in the jaw or face? Are you having any issues with your vision?

Vein or artery: Are you sure its a vein? If so, this may indicate nothing except that you are well hydrated. It could also mean higher than normal pressures in your chest, but this is unlikely. Given your age, its most likely just developmental. Follow up with your doctor if you remain concerned. If its an artery, it can be due to inflammation and your doctor may suggest some blood work. ...Read more
