Varicose veins in arms

Common Questions and Answers about Varicose veins in arms


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 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 n tn For example, when I started intense martial arts training in my teens, I developed large veins in my hands and arms. I think you tend to notice them more in leaner people who have more of their muscles showing. My youngest son (17) started weight training and martial arts last year and he too has huge veins in his hands/arms. He has lost weight and is more muscular. Everyone stores fat under the skin and this is thicker in some people than others, perhaps it hides the veins more in some people.
Avatar m tn When they get large enough they can cause other issues such as pain, and ulcers over the skin that they are in. I will say that varicose veins are quite unusual in 22 year old man. I wonder if what you have is something else. Only your doctor will be able to tell. I suggest that you schedule an appointment with your primary care physician. He or she can examine your legs and determine if what you have is actually varicose veins.
Avatar m tn The bulging vessels in my hands are veins. Some veins, such as those in the legs, have special flaps which trap blood to prevent it flowing back down to your feet through gravity. This is why surgeons have to ensure they are the right way around when grafting as a bypass, or they sometimes destroy the flaps.
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 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 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 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??
Avatar f tn 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!
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.
Avatar n tn oops sorry i left that out. yes i am..
Avatar n tn My veins are much more noticeable as well, all of a sudden. I don't know what that is all about. They usually couldn't find my veins in my arms for bloodwork. The veins in my body are showing all over as you have said.
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 n tn 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.
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 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 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 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 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.
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 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?
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.
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 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.
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).
