The : The most important thing to rule-out based on your description, would be phlebitis, an inflamed clot in a vein. The veins at the ankle level are small, so it's unlikely you have a deep vein thrombosis, but you're also having systemic symptoms, which can be a significant finding.

Symptoms of a pulmonary embolus (a clot in your lung sent up from a leg vein) are shortness of breath and chest pain.

My veins are very visible and green in my chest/breast area as well as my shoulders and arms. Should I be concerned or what could be causing this?

Normal finding: I am amazed about how often I have women ask me about the veins on their breast. Occasionally they are spider veins but mostly they are blue veins. These are almost always normal findings and normal variations of chest veins. They tend to be more pronounced in fair skinned females and they may be related to hereditary factors or even pregnancies. See a vein specialist to evaluate. ...Read more

My husband was told that if got in an airplane would cause to much pressure in the blood vessels and they would bust?   Small vessel disease of  brain

Not true, but...: If there is any reason to believe you have a congenital brain aneurysm, or if you have a true headache problem, see a neurologist after a regular check-up with your pcp . Headaches should not simply be thought of 'it's just stress'; new onset of headaches, or a change in type or frequency of headache must be evaluated. ...Read more
