I have bulging veins in my hands. Does that mean that I have a heart problem?

No. There can be many causes for this. This could simply be due to the way your veins dilated over your lifetime. It may not signify any type of problem.
No. Prominent hand veins is normal . If one holds their hands below the level of their heart, the veins will fill. If one raises their hands above the level of their heart, the veins will flatten. Overwhelmingly, prominent veins on the back of one's hands is normal.
No. Some people just have bigger veins than others but the most common reason for a change in the prominence of hand veins is the loss of subcutaneous tissue on the backs of your hands that occurs with the aging process. Although your veins become more noticeable as a result, it is completely normal.

Prominent veins. There is nothing to worry about. The bulging veins are probably from having your blood pressure checked repeatedly on that arm. It should resolve by tomorrow. If your arm hurts or is discolored or enlarged that is another matter and you should go back to the ER.

A heart problem sometimes leads to stroke, but it does not cause problems of numbness. Read more...
