Varicose veins arms

Common Questions and Answers about Varicose veins arms


Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn My 10 year old son has blue veins in his arms and legs that are visible...these veins aren't varicose or spider veins. They are just normal looking blue veins. Is this normal?
Avatar m tn I don't think you have varicose veins, because varicose veins are always there, not just when you stand up. And they are blue. I think it is more serious. You might have something some kind of POOLING OF BLOOD in the veins. But I don't know what causes it. Tell your doctor and let him see the photo also.
Avatar n tn Everyone stores fat under the skin and this is thicker in some people than others, perhaps it hides the veins more in some people. Varicose veins are a different thing and you still don't have to be old to get those.
Avatar n tn for few mounths i have had veins apperer on my back back of arms tops legs and backicly everywhere cant see without mirror and the back ones you can feel easy and some look like rash and i have few bruse type things on top of leg and stomach and went for blood test liver and that all fine and i dont drink smoke and im adverage weight im 18 what is wrong
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn My mother has had varicose veins, but as far as I'm aware those are permanent swelling of the veins. I'm seeing my doctor again about these symptoms, but when I saw him before he was rather baffled. Any suggestions or advice would be very much appreciated.
Avatar f tn Is that the same thing as little spidery purple veins? Not varicose veins, just tiny little networks of purplish veins in the breasts.
Avatar m tn The veins just below the skin in the arms and legs are unsupported by adjacent muscle tissue and are more prone to expansion due to pressure. The greatest influence is gravity. This is most evident by its cause for varicose veins....the valves in the legs are there to keep the blood from pooling due to gravity, however over time they begin to leak and the resulting pooling of blood results in greatly expanded veins. This effect is less prominent in the arms for a variety of reasons...
Avatar n tn oops sorry i left that out. yes i am..
Avatar n tn I've had this since november, it doesn't really seem to be getting worse, but I am very self-concious about it and have not been with anyone since. I'm thinking they are varicose veins which would explain the deflated head and inflated shaft, but I think tiny busted cappilaries coming off the v.v.'s are causing the bruising. I wish there was something I could do but I've pretty much accepted the fact that I'm screwed for life, which really, really sucks.
Avatar n tn are very noticeble on my chest, breasts, arms etc. Some days the veins look darker than others. I also get blue black veins appearing more visible that aren't usually there, when this happens it always freaks me out because the palms of my hands and fingers look almost black with every single little vein so vivid to the surface. Although I also have raynaud's in my hands which may worsen things.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar f tn I often see the veins in my arms get really dark like this, but that was the first time it's been so prominent and widespread, or at least the first time I've seen it. Thank you in advance for any insight you can offer.
Avatar f tn Visible veins and varicose veins are not synonymous. Some people have a more translucent skin where even the normal veins are visible. Varicose veins are not found outside of the legs unless there has been some blockage that backs up the blood. In the legs, valves that are designed to only allow blood to flow towards the heart go bad and let blood rush towards the feet in the superficial veins. This increases the pressure and causes them to ilate and become tortuous.
Avatar f tn 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.
435652 tn?1204315393 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.
Avatar m tn I stopped taking Lisinopril over two weeks ago after taking it for 4 years because it was keeping my resting pulse at 100 and it started to increase to 130 and the doctor's finally caught it. I am exercising and eating right as best I can now, but now I can see the veins in my arms and legs. MY blood pressure fluctuates during the day but my pulse pressure says between 50-60. I am a 24 year old over weight male 190 5"5' who just started exercising and walking.
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn Some of the medical conditions that can lead to the formation of blood clots are heart ailments and diseases, infections, cancer, autoimmune disorders (lupus or rheumatoid arthritis), bleeding disorders (hemophilia), inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease), history of varicose veins or other vascular diseases, pregnancy, high blood pressure (hypertension) and stroke. Aside from these, blood clots can also come as a result of other factors.
Avatar n tn My ankles continued to burn so when I went with my wife to her cardiologist he suggested an ultrasound of my legs since I have bad varicose veins. I will be meeting with him Thursday. Since then I noticed an intermittent burning sensation in my face, kind of like a sunburn. Like when I cringle my face it burns. My neck hurts when move it, but only moderately and arms have some numbness. I have always been used to the numbness because of the herniated disk, but usually just on right side.
987762 tn?1331031553 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.
Avatar n tn Shamefully, for almost 8 years I have been getting very small itchy blisters on various spots on my arms and legs. The small blisters develop and immediately itch intensely, which is how I know they're there. They have a clear fluid inside, with no puss. When I scratch them in my sleep or when they break, they often weep a little amber colored liquid. Also, when I scratch them, more tiny blisters will develop around the original blister, signifying an infection.
Avatar n tn 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).
Avatar f tn 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?
