My veins in my arm hurt after I've been cold. Why does this happen?

There: Must be a misunderstanding of terminology.
Veins, and I have no idea what you may call veins, do not hurt. Even when there is a blood clot in them it is the surrounding inflamed tissue (s) that hurt and not the vein itself. In the leg bulging veins may hurt but is distension of the skin that is painful. So I do not have a satisfying response for u. Sorry! ...Read more

Yes,: Yes, you should report this to your physician right away. If associated with arm swelling and or color changes of the skin you should seek care urgently. Your description is not specific enough to be more precise. A condition known as Paget schroeder can occur commonly in young muscular men which leads to venous narrowing and ultimately venous clot. This has been termed effort vein thrombosis and is seen in the dominant upper extremity related to muscular and ligamentous attachments at the first rib and clavicle junction. However clearly there is not enough information to make a diagnosis. If determined by your physician, an ultrasound may be the next step. ...Read more

Why do I feel that my vein from my left arm hurt, what does it mean?

Arm vein pain: You are not too descriptive of what vein location or whether your arm is swollen.
Local inflammation is constant, warm and painful. Musculoskeletal structures near veins can produce intermittent pin prick sensations with motion. Blockage of the vein entering the shoulder can cause swelling and pain due to repetitive effort like pitching (padget-schroeder syndrome) and is serious. See your doctor. ...Read more

In my arm where my veins are its painful when I move. I just want to know why does it hurt?

This is a little: Difficult to sort out without talking with you in person. It would be very unusual for vein problems to be causing pain in your arm. Much more likely the muscle underneath is sore but what you can see is the veins. The pain most likely if from a strain/overuse: lifting, carrying, playing arm-related sports, etc. Put an ice bag (of peas!) over the sore spot; talk to your Doctor if persists:) ...Read more

What causes vein in arm to pop out and hurt?

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.

I have pain in my upper forearm. It hurts when I extend my arm. Nerves are more tense to the touch than other arm. I think it is my veins or nerves.?

Upper forearm pain: Pain which changes with position usually is related to muscle pain. The extensor muscles of the forearm, extensor carpi ulnaris, and radialis may be involved. The nerves that enervate these muscles, the ulnar and radial nerves will be more sensitive in certain positions. Usually veins and arteries don't cause pain unless the blood suppy to them is cut off. Seek medical attention for this. ...Read more
