I have had a wierd condition. For last couple years my veins in my left arm may suddenly bulge. If i am carrying something heavy or just have my arms by my side during one of these inflations the veins will protrude more significantly, and may hurt.
One place, just above my wrist, can protrude up to half an inche. On the inside of my arm i can see small bumps along my vien, presumably where my valvs are.
I can work the blood through the veins by smothing them out with my hand but they immediatly reinflate.
Sometimes they hurt. soemtimes it jsut feels a bit wierd...
about 1 year ago, for a week, the condition was happening more often then not -- and in both arms. During that periode when the veins became inflamed it was always painfull. during an inflation, which could last hours, I could not keep my arms by my side too long (over 30 seconds) or the pain would become agonizing.
im an adolescent male. active. eat normaly...
none of the research i have done describes vein inflamation in arms -- its always in legs, necks or other specific areas.
I have had difficulty determing a pattern of when it happens, and am inclined to say its random. its does not for example occur often when i workout but may occur when i play sports.
