From time to time I get a sharp pain in one of my veins, usually in my hands or fingers,and then the vein seems to burst causing a bruise that spreads around the area. Doctors don't seem interested, but I'm afraid that this could happen in my brain. I have never got an answer to my question about this condition, and nobdy can put a name to it. Can anyone help?

  • Hi my mom has the same symptoms but says that she also feels heat during these attacks and afterward her speech is affected. Not slurred but like she had novacaine at the dentist. Did you ever get a diagnosis.
