Normal finding: I am amazed about how often I have women ask me about the veins on their breast. Occasionally they are spider veins but mostly they are blue veins.

Yesterday I started feeling really sick out of the blue HA, runny nose, and cough. Also my chest is so sore to touch it. I feel horrible. Advice pleas?
Starting last night noticed blue veins all over my chest and breasts. Breasts are sore, been sick to my stomach and headaches for 2 days. Why?
No short answer:
Probably muscular strain. You may have twisted wrong or coughed or sneezed hard. Also going to sleep in a chair can cause you to lean over the arm & injure the muscles. Sometimes sleeping on your side on your arm will cause tenderness.
The treatment I like best is heat, hot shower, hot bath, or more often heating pad to the area for 15+ minutes 4 times a day when you can. Do not burn yourself. ...Read more

Musculoskeletal: The fact that the pain gets better on its own after a while, speaks to muscle-bone pain that abates. Since it is noticeable after awakening, perhaps you should try changing the position you sleep in and see if that helps. Is the pain on one side of rib cage, then sleep on other side or try sleeping on your stomach. ...Read more
