What can I do with bulging veins on my calves?

What can I do with bulging veins on my calves?

Maybe nothing: Often, bulging veins in your calves are completely normal, especially if you are slender and exercise frequently. On the other hand, bulging veins can be a sign that you have underlying vein trouble that you can't see, even if your veins don't hurt.

Varicose veins: Twitching or not, if there is aching and pain over the veins and in the leg along with ankle or leg swelling, a Duplex vein scan should be done to see if there is associated venous insufficiency.

Bulging veins with bad swelling of legs ankles and feet? Associated with snri or estrogen?

Not likely to be ...: Either one. Although almost any medicine can cause almost any side effect, bulging veins and feet and ankle swelling wouldn't be likely to be due to taking an snri. Estrogen could conceivably contribute to swelling and visible veins but, as dr. Isobe said, neither is likely to be the cause. Bulging veins and swelling generally means that you have an underlying vein problem that should be treated. ...Read more

Is it normal to have bulging veins in your feet, legs, arms, hands if you are skinny and fit for the most part? I'm 24 year old male 158lbs 5"11

Is it normal to have bulging veins in your feet, legs, arms, hands if you are skinny and fit for the most part? I'm 24 year old male 158lbs 5"11

Yes: Skinny people have less subcutaneous fat which makes veins more visible. Men tend to have bigger more noticeable veins and physically active people have larger veins to handle the volume of blood required to oxygenate active peripheral muscle in the body. So active men have bigger veins generally than inactive men and most women and in skinny people veins are more apparent. You are normal. ...Read more

Twitching and and pain in calf and back of knee on left leg. Bulging veins in foot as well. Could this be a dvt?

Not impossible: Stacy, the twitching sounds more like a muscle spasm, but DVT is not impossible, especially if you have risk factors (recent travel, birth control, smoking, recent hospitalizations). It might be a good idea to visit your doctor and get an ultrasound. If you develop chest pain or difficulty breathing, this could be sign of a pulmonary embolism (lung clot), and you should go to the ER. ...Read more
