Have a bulging vein tender to touch @ wrist (below backside of pinky) for months. Will this get dislodged, travel to lung & kill me if keep sedentary?

Have a bulging vein tender to touch @ wrist (below backside of pinky) for months. Will this get dislodged, travel to lung & kill me if keep sedentary?

If it continues to bother you then see a surgeon about possibly removing the vein. ...Read more

I had a nurse who pushed phenergan (promethazine) in my hand and it burned so bad now my hand still feels bruised and my vein is hard. How long will this last?

Too long. Get seen!: One of phenergan's black box warnings is severe tissue injury to injected areas due to chemical irritation and tissue damage which causes burning, pain, thrombophlebitis (clots in little veins) and tissue death in the local area injected. If you still have a hard vein and the burning pain is continuing, you should have it checked out by a physician. Some cases need minor surgery to treat. ...Read more
