Evaluation needed: I recommend that you see a hand surgeon as you may have injured yourself beyond a sprain. History and physical exam performed by an experienced hand surgeon will help to determine if there are any more serious injuries. A simple x-ray can determine if there are any fractures and if necessary further imaging may be necessary for ligament tears. If it is just a sprain recovery can take 3-6 wk. ...Read more

I have a vein in left middle finger very painful swells up very sensitive to touch its a very sharp throbbing pain. I've had this broblem 10-15yrs?

Unusual: If the area is a vein (hard to say without exam), it would be somewhat unusual. An inflammation of the vein is called superficial thrombophlebitis. If it is this then taking an NSAID usually will speed resolution. However, for an accurate diagnosis you would have to see your physician while the area was swollen and painful.

I hope that helps ...Read more

Hands and veins very swollen and painful. My hands and feet often swell (due to stimulants?) but this is extreme. Veins on hands bulge more than feet

Discuss w/ provider: The provider who prescribed the stimulants needs to know about this symptom and consider if it is a side effect or something else. In any case, that can lead to a corrective plan. Perhaps alternatives to long term stimulants can be found - they play rough w/ bodies over time. Call ASAP and best wishes for resolving this. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with sciatica last Thursday and yesterday night my feet and hands start to throbbing and begin to swell is that normal or is that some?

Very odd: For a 20 yo to have sudden swelling of both hands and feet is a dangerous condition; one that requires urgent evaluation. Acute allergic reaction or acute renal failure could precipitate these signs and symptoms. Sciatic pain patten mistaken for thrombosis evolution might be explanatory, but not bilaterally, and certainly not if these symptoms involve the hands. ...Read more

Why do my veins in my hands and feet always swell whenever I am cleaning, walking, doing anything that involves movement. Feet go red, n I get a headache?

Exercise: Exertion induces increased blood flow to the area involved and this in turn leads to increase in the volume of blood returning to the heart/lung through your veins thus accounting for the swelling. I have no idea why your legs get red but the posture you assume during exertion may be a cause for your headache. Try to keep you neck position as erect as possible and see if this helps. ...Read more

Exam needed: Abnormal sweating with rather mild activities can be seen with hyperthyroidism or other hormonal imbalances. Swelling of hands and feet raises the question of fluid retention which is often caused by certain hormonal actions. The cough, productive of phlegm, may or may not require a course of antibiotics. See your physician for diagnosis and treatment. Appropriate tests can be ordered. ...Read more
