Probably normal: It is unusual for arm veins to to hurt unless they are inflamed or have a clot in them. What you describe does not go along with either one. I do not think that your veins are the cause of the problem. Something else is causing your pain. ...Read more

Somehow your position is pulling on the roots of nerves to these areas in your neck or you're developing thoracic outlet syndrome ( pinching of nerve, vein & artery bundles as they leave your thorax, or chest). Other neurological disorders are less likely, but a neurologist can diagnose any or all of these. ...Read more

Wrist pain: Wrist pain with motion in an atraumitic hand can be a difficult diagnosis. Since it is with all axis of motion it most likely is a problem with the radiocarpal joint. An eval by a hand surgeon is essential. Good x-rays will help provide a diagnosis. Including kienbocks a vascular problem with a wrist bone. If still unsure an MRI will provide soft tissue imaging, possible a ganglion cyst. ...Read more

Work up: The wrist is without question the most complex and sophisticated joint in the body. Encompassing 8 bones and a multitude of ligaments not to mention the array of tendons, vessels, and nerves that traverse the wrist, any single or combination of structures can be involved so I recommend you start with your family doctor who can treat most problems or refer you to his trusted Hand Surgeon. ...Read more
