I accidentally banged the inside of lower left calf @ gym. A few days ago and now it's warm to touch, vein painful to touch.Will it go away?

Yes: but not right away. It's probably a hematoma which is a blood clot in the tissue. It could be a blood clot in the superficial vein call superficial thrombophlebitis. I can't guarantee that it's not a deeper blood clot in the deep vein in your calf so you should see your doctor. ...Read more

Dropped glass on my foot & a piece of it made a small puncture. Swollen vein & painful. Ice & elevated but goes back when I stand up. What do I do?

Dropped glass on my foot & a piece of it made a small puncture. Swollen vein & painful. Ice & elevated but goes back when I stand up. What do I do?

Inflammation: will certainly occur with an injury. Ice early, elevation then warmth later. The problem is that this presupposes that the injury Stopped occurring. If there is continuing injury, it's going to stay inflamed. Infection OR a retained shard of glass will keep the area inflamed until it is treated. Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health ...Read more

It depends: Although every procedure has some discomfort associated with it. How much you feel depends on what you are having done. If you have surgery or an endovenous thermal procedure, you will get an anesthetic during the procedure so that you won't feel anything. The amount of pain you will have afterwards will be worse with surgery but your doctor can prescribe medicine for you to keep you comfortable. ...Read more

Large swollen portion on penis told it was broken blood vessel, now there is a clear hard vein area painful to touch. Could it be a penis thrombosis?

Mondor's Disease: Probable thrombosed dorsal vein of penis or superficial venous thrombophlebitis. Should not be a problem, not like deep vein thrombosis of leg or coronary thrombosis. Commonest causes are masturbation or excessive sex. Penile swelling should settle down in time. This should not be confused with priapism, which is an erection which fails to go away & can be due to internal penile vessel thrombosis. ...Read more

Experienced hands: If something can be felt but not seen then often a clinician can determine the most likely diagnosis by palpating the area in physical exam. Superficial blood clots or varicosities are easily palpated, but more serious deep venous thrombosis usually are not. Cysts, lymph nodes, and a variety of skin nodules can be found behind the knee too. ...Read more

I experience painful blood vessels in hands feet,legs and arms,burst veins, cramp, painful spasms in neck, tinitus and tingling in hands and mouth?

Sounds like: some of your symptoms may be related to your fibromyalgia. It does not look like you are taking any medication for this. If you are having swelling/edema in your extremities that can also be a cause for the "burst veins". Varicose veins can also become inflamed, causing your symptoms. I would recommend you see your doctor to have these addressed. There ARE treatments for fibromyalgia! ...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

Is it normal for a varicose vein to be painful after giving birth?

Is it normal for a varicose vein to be painful after giving birth?

Not really: Although varicose veins can hurt after giving birth, you need to be cautious, as dr. Proffitt said. Pregnancy is a hypercoagulable condition. That means that your risk of getting a blood clot when pregnant is higher than normal. That increased risk doesn't go back to normal until at least 6 weeks after delivery. If you have a painful vein, see your doctor to make sure you don't have a clot. ...Read more
