I have swollen blood vessels when hands are hanging, if I hold them above the chest level, they look normal. Is it normal?
Probably: Blood pumped by the heart goes to the hand in arteries and comes back in the veins, which have no pump. Veins have a thin wall and are easily distended. Gravity pulls the blood down, distending the veins. Lifting the arms pulls blood back to the heart and the veins shrink. Further tests would be needed if arm elevation did not empty the veins. ...Read more

You can consider taking Tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen for your pain. Also, applying a cool (not icy cold) compress to the area may be helpful. Best wishes. ...Read more

Vasculitis: The cause of most forms of vasculitis (inflammation of blood vessels) is unknown. However we know the immune system plays a role. The immune system is meant to protect the body, but when it becomes "overactive" due to some unknown trigger it can cause inflammation in the blood vessels. This causes narrowing of the blood vessel, decreased blood supply which can cause damage to surrounding tissues. ...Read more

Why did my daughter have a cut on her head when she was born? It was emergency C-section. Her blood vessels were popped and head was cone shaped.
C/section risk: The OB cuts through the layers of the uterus during the C-section to reveal a balloon like baby container. The distance between the last layer of uterus and the balloon like lining is the width of a thick sheet of paper. The baby & container presses tightly against the wall. Occasionally the knife nicks baby at what ever point they are under the cutting edge. Shallow nicks heal quickly. ...Read more
