Hello, I'm worried about my arm veins. They are bulging and more prominent now. I'm a 35-year-old tall and slim woman. I have a one-year old boy who I often carry on my arms. I exercised regularly at home for about 4 months. Now, I don't exercise for the fear of getting my veins worse. Can you help me. Thank you in advance.

I'm worried about my ugly hands and feet due to vein bulging. This started in the last 6 months and isn't normal for me. What's wrong?
Hand Vein Treatment -1 answer
My doctor was blasé about it. My veins are bulging a shocking amount. I rarely see anyone with more prominent veins than me. I'm very embarrassed and feel ugly and uncomfortable. My feet and hands feel very heavy. They throb and are hot most of the day. My feet swell from walking. My legs go very red and blotchy. I spend a lot of time with my hands above my head to relieve the discomfort.

I’d just like some advice really. I began experiencing a numbness in my foot in Sept. 2017.

This got worse at night and I now have red patches under the skin that come and go in hot and cold. I have pins and needles when I put pressure on my feet. I've had ear problems since Sept. with blocked eustation tubes. 3 weeks ago my whole body started tingling in the last 2 weeks and small broken capillaries showed up all over. My arm and hand are often numb and I wake up at night to dead limbs. If you pinch my skin blood comes to the surface. My blood's all clear and I had a chest X-ray.

My grandfather is 70 yrs old. Recently his hands have been swelling from fingers to wrist. Can this be cured?
Hand Vein Treatment -1 answer
He had surgery in the last year. He is diabetic which is under control. Our doctor said it was an infection which can be cured by taking a dosage of antibiotic injections. Is this problem life threatening or a normal one which can be cured? He is suffering from pain.

My arm veins become very dark when my arms are down, almost as if I've been drawn on with marker. Is this normal?
Hand Vein Treatment -2 answers
They don't bulge but are very visible and seem to darken very fast. My hand veins are almost gross because they bulge so much. I had a baby in June and was transfused. Since then my veins have seemed huge (they were tiny in the hospital). Is it normal that my arms and hand veins become so visible so quickly? I am 28 and only slightly active...maybe 3 times a week.

When practicing hot yoga, why do my hands turn white?
Hand Vein Treatment -2 answers
I am 27 years old and female. When I am in yoga class and having to hold a pose for sixty seconds (when my hands are raised above my head), it seems that all the blood drains from my hands and goes to my head. I get light-headed and dizzy, and have to drop my hands before the pose is over. Is this normal? Is there anything I can do to stop this from happening?

Why does one of the veins at the back of my left hand bulge, and only in one spot? The bulge is smaller or disappears when I raise my hand.

Why does one of the veins at the back of my left hand bulge, and only in one spot? The bulge is smaller or disappears when I raise my hand. No redness or discoloration; however, after doing research online, I feel a bit of pain. It might be because I am paranoid and I had a bad experience with an IV drip when I was a baby, so it is sensitive.
