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. An ultrasound evaluation of your veins will tell you what is going on. I would see a vein specialist for a check up and treatment if indicated. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I am experiencing arm pain and bulging veins. The following also describes me: Calf pain. What should I do?
I've always had very pronounced/bulging veins on my arms/legs. I've noticed them a bit more pronounced the last day or so. What could cause this?
Bulging veins.: Varicose veins are due to leaking valves in the saphenous vein system. There is a strong hereditary component. Leaking (refluxing) valves can lead to varicose veins, leg and foot swelling. If you have varicose veins, then you should see a vein specialist for a full venous evaluation including a venous ultrasound to help to make the diagnosis and determine treatment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Knee pain. Also have slightly bulging veins in knee and calf near knee. Veins twitch some times. Im 70 lbs overweight. Shud i be worried?
During the last 2years I've gotten spider veins all over my outer tights and recently I've noticed bulging veins in right legs knee pit.Any guess why?
Vein incompetence: Likely you have a case of venous reflux disease "varicose veins" with or without deep venous obstructive pathology; an ultrasound sound study should follow a physical examination; good lifestyle changes may help some; eg : lean body weight,avoid pelvic constrictive garment, wear compression stockings, avoid constipation straining etc. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
None that works.: Varicose veins are due to leaking valves in the saphenous vein system. There is a strong hereditary component. There are many potential home remedies such as horse chestnut, witch hazel and certain kinds of berries but none of these work. If you have varicose veins, then you should see a vein specialist for a f/u venous evaluation including a venous ultrasound. ...Read more
Buttock veins.: Buttock veins are not the routine for location of varicose veins and when they occur, sources for them such as the saphenous vein, branches of the saphenous vein or even reflux from pelvic and ovarian veins need to be considered. A venous duplex ultrasound of the leg veins may help and, sometimes, a CT scan of the pelvis may be necessary. See a vein specialist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Here's why: A man with prominent veins very likely has little body fat and also has more blood on board -- it's stored in the veins of the body. Some of this is genetic, and some reflects fitness training. An aerobic athlete is likely to have 20-30% more blood volume, which explains why track athletes tend to have veiny arms. Heavy muscles on the thoracic inlet may also make arm veins prominent. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I am experiencing bulging veins that are very sensitive. I don't know where this came from I'm a gymnast and it's hurting badly.
Veins: Are these on your legs? You are young to have varicose veins, but they surely can be painful. Especially during the menstrual cycle for many women. These can be treated with either laser or "stripping". Compression stockings help quite a bit with symptoms and to prevent worsening of them. Also, avoid standing for long periods, and try not to sit with legs crossed. ...Read more
