In brief: Clotted vein?

A bulging in an arm vein can be normal or due to an underlying problem. Some veins may bulge especially if the bulging is in an area of a valve.
Painful bulging areas especially if hard may be due to a clot in the vein. You should see a vein specialist for an evaluation.

In brief: Vein irritation

Did you have IV or blood draw sometime recently? Injury? It sounds like a vein irritation or inflammation called thrombophlebitis? See your family doctor.
