May be serious: I see this question submitted twice. I'm guessing you are very concerned. If you are having any shortness of breath or chest pressure, or jaw ache, I would take an aspirin and call an ambulance now. Feeling a bounding pulse can mean heart palpitations. If you are completely comfortable then it may not be important. Women' heart attack symptoms are sometimes unrecognized. Be cautious. Good luck! ...Read more

Veins in left arm popping out and feel tight with numbness in both hands and arms especially my right thumb?

Neurologist: I feel that a neurologist is best qualified to evaluate your symptoms as they may be due to nerve impingements or a peripheral neuropathy. The veins in your arm should collapse as you raise the arm to shoulder height. If the veins remain distended at that height, an obstruction higher in the arm would be possibly present and for this a vascular surgeon may be consulted. ...Read more

Why are the veins in my hands bursting? What causes this?

Why are the veins in my hands bursting? What causes this?

Weakened vein walls: It is normal for hand veins to become thinner (and therefore more prone to bruising marks, i.e."bursting") as you age. The skin overlying the hand veins also thins rather dramatically with older age, making the veins more prone to bruising w/ mild trauma. Blood thinners, such as Aspirin or plavix, (clopidogrel) increases the incidence of this. I expect the veins are not "diseased" and should not be treated. ...Read more

The back of my hand pops when I bend or move it. The popping isn't painful but my hand hurts most of the time. I have RA. Could this be the cause?

Classical Gas...: For the most part, popping sounds are caused by cavitating gases within the fluid inside the joints and tendons being moved over bony irregularities. As luck would have it, RA offers changes in both of these issues. People can exhibit this same popping without RA, as there are a host of other reasons for these phenomena to occur. If circumstances should change, consult with your RA specialist. ...Read more
