Have tachycardia sum brady did squats 1st in long time feel weak sat, and right neck vein pulsate hard periodicaly does so why left neck vein pulsate?

Many possibilities: Depending on your size (very thin?), and your position (up or down, leaning left or right), you may be seeing either your carotid artery or your jugular vein. Interpretation of your visible pulse would require a reasonably complete physical exam including your BP, pulse, presence or absence of volume overload, or murmur (aortic insufficiency?). What you see may be normal or not, depending. ...Read more

Occasional, but almost daily lately throbbing and sharp throat pain. Also wrist veins throb. Could this be from crutch use?

Dr. Can check throat: New throat pain can be from strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause like allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep). Crutches don't cause a sore throat unless one is heavily mouth-breathing while moving about. ...Read more

On my left side on neck the vein pops out, why?

On my left side on neck the vein pops out, why?

Normal: Neck veins distend when we lie with our head lower than our heart or when we strain. With straining, the pressure within the chest increases and the blood flow through the neck veins decrease resulting in them enlarging. This is normal. Levels of hydration, genetics, outside temperature and any increase in pressure within the chest will enlarge the neck veins. Your veins seem to be normal. L. ...Read more

The vein at the left side of my neck feels swollen especially when I try to get up from bed. Why is it like that?

Normal: Neck veins distend when we lie with our head lower than our heart or when we strain. With straining, the pressure within the chest increases and the blood flow through the neck veins decrease resulting in them enlarging. When straining is stopped, the pressure in the chest decreases and flow continues through the neck veins so they become less engorged. ...Read more

24 month son has a big veins o The sides of his neck when he is crying. Bigger on one side. Is this normal and just looks freaky?

Likely normal: Crying babies generate pressure on their veins, the same way you do if you hold your breath or bear down to make poo. This is reflected by the neck veins filling more under that pressure while they go down and become less prominent if the kid settles. You can see a similar filling of veins if you hold them upside down. You can discuss it with your doc at your next visit, but I wouldn't go in for it ...Read more

I have had a headache for about 4 days now and yesterday I also started experiencing pain in what feels like the vein on the right side of my neck.

Migraines are vascular headaches and could potentially cause pain in other blood vessels. For more info see: http://understandingmigraine. Blogspot. Com/.
