What do veins intermittently popping out on forehead mean?

Loss of fat: Some people have less subcutaneous fat in the forehead, so the vein is more visible. Cosmetic treatment can be performed with a laser by a vein specialist or phlebologist.

Not likely: You are thirty years old and have two veins on your forehead which does not mean anything and does not suggest that you have had a stroke before. I don't know but you seem to have some anxiety about stroke The veins in forehead are nothing to worry about But I suggest you talk to your doctor as you need reassurance and may be treatment about your anxiety about having had a stroke

Temporal Arteritis: If there is a delay in treating this condition it can cause permanent loss of vision in one eye. Se your PCP for consultation and tests ASAP.

Positional change.: The veins in the face just as the veins in the rest of the body change in size depending on changes in position as well as changes in levels of hydration and changes in pressure in the chest and abdominal cavity. In the face, the veins decrease with standing and increase with lying down. Straining or laughing increase the the pressure in the chest which can increase the size of the facial veins.

Why do I get sharp pain on the side of my head, feels like a blood vessels popping, also feeling very weak. A After the pain leaves it feels cold at area?

Neuralgia: An irritable superficial scalp nerve may be the cause of this symptom. This is more of a nuisance disorder which usually resolves without any specific treatment. Less likely would be an inflamed temporal artery. A neurologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you if this symptom persists.

Havez it for a short while on my forehead. Will popping make it worse?

Havez it for a short while on my forehead. Will popping make it worse?

Likely: Squeezing zits (acne) can inadvertently force lipid and bacteria (contained in the pimple) deeper into the skin and subcutaneous fat. That may spread the infection and result in a deeper, more painful problem. It is better to spot treat the pimple with a product specially formulated to treat acne.

Skin? 's: You can see a cosmetic dermatologist. You might think about dermabrasion as one approach. Also, Botox but that involves continuing doctor visits.

Neck cracking/popping, forehead/scalp tingling, the result of pinched nerves in neck? MRI's and CT's of head were normal. Thanks.

Neck cracking/popping, forehead/scalp tingling, the result of pinched nerves in neck? MRI's and CT's of head were normal. Thanks.

More info: The MRI and CT you speak of were of the head. Did you have a neck imaging test?
Any pinched nerves come from the neck.
Scalp tingling is another separate issue. Need labs and more information.
Neck cracking and popping is benign and self limiting.

What causes : rapid appearance of brown spots on nose, under eyes, forehead. Feet cold and turn purple, sore breasts, acid reflux, popping joints?

What causes : rapid appearance of brown spots on nose, under eyes, forehead. Feet cold and turn purple, sore breasts, acid reflux, popping joints?

See your doctor: You have too many conditions happening at the same time to be able to address them here, without having a physical examination done by your doctor. It sounds like it's time to be seen for your annual physical, and to address these concerns with her/him. After the exam, s/he will know what other tests to order. You may want to have your vitamin d3, and micronutrient level checked as well.

Neck cracking/popping, forehead/scalp tingling, the result of pinched nerves in neck from bulges at C5-C6 and C6-C7 via neck MRI? MRI's and CT's of brain were normal. Thanks.

Neck cracking/popping, forehead/scalp tingling, the result of pinched nerves in neck from bulges at C5-C6 and C6-C7 via neck MRI? MRI's and CT's of brain were normal. Thanks.

Does not correlate.: The disk bulges at C5-C7 should affect your arm & neck, not the forehead & scalp. Many people live their ENTIRE LIVES with bulging disks & don't complain of any pain, so MRI or CT scan to "diagnose" bulging disks is actually a gross misuse of imaging. Talk to your doctor or a neurologist about your symptoms to undergo accurate testing. Or use HealthTap Prime. Good luck to you; hope you find cause.

Localization: Your description doesn't provide enough detail to localize the symptoms; if you haven't seen a neurologist, that might be a consideration to aid in assessment. But certainly a second opinion if you have might also be an option. And you should speak with your physician who ordered the imaging in the first place to determine if they have thoughts on the differential diagnosis.

How to hide forehead veins?

How to hide forehead veins?

Multiple options: I don't think that there is a single best way but there are mutiple options including sclerotherapy, ipl, laser, veinwave, veingogh and micro needle radio frequency. The size of the veins and the training and experience of the treating physician usually influence what treatment is recommended. My usual treatment is sclerotherapy or laser for very small veins. You should see a vein specialist.

What does it mean when the veins in my feet are popping out?

What does it mean when the veins in my feet are popping out?

Multiple reasons: Veins return blood back to the heart and can carry a large volume of blood. Depending on many factors including levels of hydration, genetics, outside temperature and even physical activity, the size of the veins will vary. Another important function of the veins is to help control body temperature and this too will affect vein size. Also with aging, veins enlarge as tissue volume decreases.

What does a blue vein popping out of my neck when I talk mean?

What does a blue vein popping out of my neck when I talk mean?

That is: Most probably your external jugular vein seen in certain people you shout, or blow into a trumpet. It means nothing. However in people who have heart problems or other chest pathology any little effort even speaking can make those veins on the side of your neck to bulge. To be sure go to check it out, see a professional.
