varicose-veins

Sorry for the typos! I've a wriggly 5wk old in my arms! PS. I believe it is best to treat varicose veins as early as possible, my ex husband ended up having to have an op to strip the veins (shudder!) as he left treatment for far too long and ended up in a lot of pain.
It is just the other way around. When your arms are hanging down, the blood in your hands has to fight gravity to be transported back through your veins to your heart. I notice, particularly on long walks (an hour or more) where your arms don't do much but generally hang down on your side, that even the whole hand and not just the veins are swollen.

I still have the pain and you can feel it even it you can't see the viens like in my arms I can feel the veins swell sometimes. My mother in law just had one do this next to her eye. She went in and they told her that it was because on the blood thinners that she is on??? I have talked to some people about this and some say that when the Drink green tea it makes it worse? I've tested that and sometimes I see a difference and sometimes I don't.
Other possibility is of varicose veins. Varicose veins are veins that have become enlarged and twisted.They are common in the superficial veins of the legs but can be present in arms also. Confirmatory tests are Doppler ultrasound and angiogram. I sincerely advise you to get it confirmed from a vascular surgeon. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep us posted if you have any additional queries. Kind regards.
The veins were one of the first things I noticed when I first thought I was preggers. I didn't have any purplish varicose ones, just my main blue blue veins became alot darker. And my nipples turned brown (usually pink) and I got lots of new bumps on them.. not to mention they got bigger and hurt like h*ll!
Hi, I also noticed sudden prominent veins in my arms, hands, feet , legs and across my chest and shoulders. I am also starting to see them on my jaw and the corners of my mouth down to my jaw and on my neck. I also notice to it more at night and after a shower ( but that usually is at night). I am also on levothyroxine and also lost about 12 lbs. I also get swollen ankles.I am 37 Any luck on finding out what the cause is??
Hi, thank for taking the time to answer me. Well I has stopped working out about 7 months ago. The. Last month I went back to working out I might have gotten a little too hard in the begging instead of starting slow again. At one point I though I had Varicose veins, but just yesterday my blood test results came back and doctor said everything looked fine. As far as the pain it still there but I feel like it's getting better, I keep putting Icy -Hot before I go to bed.
oops sorry i left that out. yes i am..
Have any of you noticed that your veins are more visible? Since December the veins in my arms, hands, chest, breasts, lower abdomen, and legs are a lot more noticable. I am not too concerned, but it looks creepy and started all of the sudden. I am drinking a lot of water now, but when it started I wasn't. I am just curious if this is part of fibro or just another weird/random symptom. Thanks!
I have recently gone through a separation which has hit me really hard and my anxiety levels are really high still after 7 months, symptoms are churning stomach loss of interest but the one that is really getting me is my veins in my arms and legs really pump up and get quite uncomfortable and it coincides with my feeling of anxiety.
I have the same problem. It's not normal because I didn't use to have it before. It's dark blue/purple veins in the shape of a pentagon that looks like it has arms and legs on the right side of my penis. There is bruising around the area which varies in discoloration from day to day but never completely goes away. I've seen other people post similar problems and the doctor's just say it's normal. My penis tends to bend to the left slightly now whether hard or soft.
I was in the ER over the weekend and in the same arm they put the IV I now have a vein sticking out on my inner arm...and it's very painful. Can you get varicose veins in your arms at 9 weeks?
I never rub them as I'm afraid they will get a clot. I have varicose and spider veins in my legs but the veins that do this are in my hands, arms, head, etc and are not varicose or spider. Also sometimes my legs will hurt and ache so bad. Any information you can give me will be greatly appreciated! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dear Myrtle: None of the symptoms you describe sounds like a blood clot.
Luckily it did no real harm but I always advise members to seek help just in case as blood clots are very serious. may I ask your age. You can PM me if you would like. There are many reasons for blood clots I will find a reputable site that will tell us each one and post it here. Please keep us posted so we know how your doing.
At the time of onset, I was suffering from extreme tendinitis in both elbows) I've always been pale, so you could see light traces of veins beneath my skin. But when my veins in my arms become engorged, they are remarkably different - they're so swollen that if I do not relieve the pressure, I am eventually physically unable to make a fist. At the beginning, each occurrence was quite painful. (And sufficiently frightening, obviously.
2 veins, one coming up each side. They also seem to be growing slowly. I also have very prominent veins in my arms, hands and feet. My legs and feet get very soar when I stand still and I almost always need to put my feet up after walking. I am very healthy, active and not overweight. My mother had vericose veins but nothing to the extent that I do. Has anyone else had a similar problem? Any suggestion on what else I could try to fix the problem?
I have been looking into this a lot myself and found out about spider veins and varicose veins and I think that is what they are. I have just begun a new birth control pill after some problems with my hormone levels and am also on the end of my recent period - could this be causing it? I read that it can if you are on the pill and have imbalanced hormones - such as being pregnant or on your period. Will they fade or disappear when my hormone levels are balanced?
This appears to be due to incompetent valves in deep veins of hands or varicose veins. You need to consult a surgeon for examination. You will have to undergo a duplex ultrasound of the veins to confirm the diagnosis. Hyperhidrosis, raynaud’s phenomenon are other possibilities and connective tissue disorders like scleroderma, polymyositis, rheumatoid arthritis, SLE etc. will have to be checked for. Hope this helps. Take care.
With varicose veins heat will tend to increase vein distention and lead to more pooling of blood so that makes sense why heat makes this even more unpleasant but I dont have varicose veins in my arms, or visible ones any where, which if this was varicose you'd expect to find some evidence.
I have had these symptoms for just over 4 years. We recently moved to the area and lived in our home for about a year and a half. They randomly appear and I honestly have no idea what triggers them. I have seen multiple dermatologist, who have run a plethora of blood test - all inconclusive. I have tried many creams, nothing that really helps. I have seen an allergist and even subjected myself to the food and pollen allergy panel of tests.
The most common local conditions that cause edema are varicose veins and thrombophlebitis (a blood clot with inflammation of the veins) of the deep veins of the legs. These conditions can cause inadequate pumping of the blood by the veins (venous insufficiency).
While you are standing with your arms held quietly at your side, you may be able to see the veins in your chest and arms. Distended veins are raised above the surface of the skin so that they are very noticeable. When veins are distended while you are in a position that is not affected by gravity this is often a sign of disease. An example of this would be if the veins in your legs were distended while sitting with your legs resting on a footrest.
Hi, There’re 2 possibilities which I can think of in your case. The first one is Varicose veins of the legs. Varicose veins are swollen, twisted, painful veins that have filled with an abnormal collection of blood. The diagnosis is made by duplex ultrasound exam of extremity. The other possibility is Vitamin B12 deficiency which can give rise to unexplained pains in the legs. I’ll suggest you to consult a physician and get these 2 possibilities ruled out before thinking of anything else.
Even warm weather doesn't relieve the feeling of burning, tingling and numbness. Then, my veins started popping out big and blue in my feet, hands and arms. I woke up with electrical tingling up the front of my legs and varicose veins began to form. Tests for blood flow showed everything was 'normal'. Then the frontal vein in my forehead began to swell too and is causing a very uncomfortable 'full' feeling in my left brow with a feeling of pressure in my left eye and left nasal cavity.
Your symptoms may be related to a vascular issue rather than a neurologic one. Specifically, varicose veins can cause a burning or pain in the feet and behind the knees that is felt less during movement. Most often, bulging veins will be visible on the legs. This is more likely if you stand a lot; treatment is with compression stockings, leg elevation, and sometimes there are injection or surgical treatments available.
As I mentioned earlier they are the signs of a deep vein thrombus. This then ultimately leads to varicose veins. Hope this helps. Do let me know if there is any thing else and keep me posted. Take care!
I am a 25 year old female that has been tested by many different doctors, 2 of which are Neurologist, 2 of which are Rheumatologists, 1 General Practitioner, and 1 Ear Nose & Throat Specialist. At my last appointment with my Rheumatologists they both agreed that I have Fibromyalgia, Myoclonus, Hypermobility Syndrome & Neuropathy. They also agreed that I have a Rheumatic Condition, but they were more worried with my Neurologic Condition.
But i was in the er couple times before with same symptoms and had normal ekg's, until the last eposide where i had a real bad spasm, ended up in hospital 4 days. So keep after your dr.s until you find the answer to your problems, ps my primary dr. told me it was anxiety!
