Also a DO, or doctor of osteopathic medicine can provide osteopathic treatment for relief. ...Read more

Nope: Sounds like you just have small veins. When they are sucking blood out, they could collapse, but that doesn't mean there is anything wrong with your veins, just the vial has too much suction for your veins. Anyways, I wouldn't worry about having small veins. ...Read more
