Why Are The Veins In My Hands Puffy
Why do the back of my hand and top of my feet hurt.?My veins also seems to be a little bit puffy in those areas
Sharp pain in puffy vein by achilles. Later sudden feeling of wet and liquid running in my sole but nothing to see. Hematomas in hands same day. Why?
Potentially serious: Already on iron=good.Concerned about "puffy vein" followed by 'liquid running'.Anemia could be cause of hematomas, do you have tiny hematomas anywhere (petechiae)?Could be indication of thrombocytopenia (low platelets) or other serious blood disorder. Hypermobility also significant as it indicates connective tissue weakness & blood vessels can burst (Marfan v Ehlers-Danlos). See dr. IMMEDIATELY. ...Read more
Increased flow: Exercising increases blood flow to the muscles. That and increased pressure from straining increases the amount of blood in your veins so they are more visible. ...Read more
I just worked out and after my shower i noticed the veins in my hands were much bluer than usual.. Is this normal?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A couple of ways: You can either shrink the veins or fill in the tissue around the veins. Sclerotherapy will shrink the veins and generally gives lasting results for at least a couple of years. You would want to see a vein specialist to get this done. Dermal fillers can raise the tissue around the veins and make them less apparent. The results are generally quicker to be apparent but don't last as long. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Swollen hand veins.: Hand veins can swell for many reasons but the most common is certainly hereditary . Other factors would be level of hydration, aging, sun exposure and loss of elasticity and volume. Actually, I am amazed at the amount of women that i see with bulging hand veins. They can be easily treated with laser or sclerotherapy and usually a combination of both. ...Read more
Hi, I'm a 22 year old female and I've noticed recently my veins in my hands bulge out quite a bit whenever my hands are lowered. Why is this happening?
Very grave question!: When you are standing up and you lower your arms the blood in your veins will drop towards the floor (unless you are in a space capsule), due to the force of gravity. (Remember your HS Physics). You will see some small bumps too. Those are the valves in your veins which prevent backflow. If you lift your hands and arms above your heart the blood will quickly flow back to your heart. ...Read more
Temperature related?: Not an easy question as the pain could be coming from anywhere. But since your veins are one of the main ways our body tries to control our internal temperature, you may be experiencing discomfort as they change sizes - they may swell with activity and warmth and shrink when it is cold. As they change size the amount of blood flowing in them changes too. You may be sensitive to this change. ...Read more
