Causes for prominent veins? Over the past few days I've noticed my veins are showing more and more of them are visible everywhere above my pelvis.

Causes for prominent veins? Over the past few days I've noticed my veins are showing more and more of them are visible everywhere above my pelvis.

Veins showing: Veins are closer to your skin surface than arteries are. Maybe like like most young healthy women you are exercising and trying to keep your wt down.

They often appear on prenant women and on the skin overlying the muscles of body builders. Anyone can get them during after a rapid growth spurt. They often show up on the hips & buttocks. They aren't harmful. ...Read more

I've noticed veins popping more around my body and hips. Heard this is a preg symptom but had period 2 weeks ago and had sex once w/protection?

Not likely: The size of the veins in parts of your body have much more to do with hydration status than anything else. If you are well hydrated, your veins will be full and "pop out" more. This is not a symptom associated with pregnancy. If you miss your next period and are concerned about pregnancy, get a pregnancy test. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Sometimes I get a swishing vibrating feeling in groin it pulses. My hip is hypermobile. Worried I'm pinching arteries or veins? Is it possible todo?

It's certainly: Possible to temporarily cut off circulation of the large arteries altho circulation returns ASA the pressure is released. However, since you have Ehler-Danlos syndrome, your large arteries might be more vulnerable to compression than average. I recommend that you see a doctor about this to find out if what you're experiencing is clinically relevant ...Read more

Hi iv just noticed this morning that I have large purple veins on both sides of my hips and Afew littler red spider veins on my right side. What is it?

Lateral thigh veins: Without seeing this, it could be branches of the lateral subdermal venous system, which is the arc of thigh veins on the upper thigh. When damaged, they become visually prominent. Usually they respond well to injection treatment. They are a cosmetic problem. Have a doctor view them for proper diagnosis. ...Read more

I started BC June 2nd, since the veins in my breasts/hips/thighs/palms have become more noticeable. Normal hormone side effects?

Hormone effects: Likely, the prominence of veins is a direct effect of the BCP you are now taking. This is normal. It is a good idea to report this to the prescribing physician. Perhaps the dose can be modified. And, be aware that venous thrombosis is a recognized side effect of BCP, though unusual. ...Read more

Hormone and veins: Female hormones : estrogen and especially Progesterone cause veins to dilate and enlarge. This occurs all over the body including the breasts and trunk. Veins are more noticeable in fair skinned and thin skinned individuals. It is probably a normal variant but it is best to get it checked out by a doctor. ...Read more

Why does my leg/hip hurt more with rest. Esp if elevated takes 10 mins to weight bare each time? I do have quite bad varicose veins on both legs.

Fluid and blood pool: Varicose veins can cause pain when we are still due to pooling of fluid in veins and tissue. Elevation helps but takes time. It does not prevent occurrence of symptoms long term. Compression stockings can be real helpful on day to day basis to prevent pooling. Eventually may need vein ablation after a proper evaluation. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I have cellulite on my arms and legs, and I have spider veins on my hips. How can I get rid of them?

Possibilities: The easy answer is the spider veins. They are usually easily treated with sclerotherapy, as long as there isn't untreated underlying vein disease that is causing them to be there. Cellulite is more difficult. As dr. Westfried said, there are treatments for cellulite. The problem is that it takes several treatments to achieve success and touch-up and maintenance is required. ...Read more

Long saphenous vein blocked on left leg. Could this cause sciatica? Pain back of both legs, hips and right side groin. Worse right side

Long saphenous vein blocked on left leg. Could this cause sciatica? Pain back of both legs, hips and right side groin. Worse right side

No.: Development of a clot of what was once called the long saphenous vein may cause discomfort, tenderness to touch, redness, or warmth over the length of the vein itself -- something called thrombophlebitis. This is a local issue, self-limited, and should not lead to discomfort in the other leg or the hips. If the clot extends near its junction with the deep veins, it may lead to a DVT. ...Read more
