Re: vein in temple is pulsating why?

how are your normal blood pressures running?you might want to just bring this up to your primary at your next visit and have him evaluate it a bit more closely.Marcia

Re: vein in temple is pulsating why?

if this has been a thing that kind of comes and goes,it wouldn;t hurt to just buy yourself one of those home blood pressure kits?they are pretty reasonably priced these days and you can buy them at like any drug store.it would be interesting just to be taking a normal morning,midday and night BP to just get the 'baseline" BPs when this is NOT occuring then take them again at various times when it is occuring just to see if there IS actually an elevation in BP that is causing this vessel to become more prominent during higher BP episodes.just something you can try at home and keep track of yourself ya know?this would either possibly rule in or out your BPs as a possible reason/trigger for the vessel becomming more prominent at times.

did this just suddenly start for you one day out of the blue or has this kind of always done this?Marcia

Re: vein in temple is pulsating why?

I would discuss with your doctor about having an ultrasound on your carotid and possibly temporal arteries. It may be a sign of occlusion due to plaque buildup. When the blood supply is restricted due to vasoconstriction it will cause more force on the blood vessels as the fluid is trying to flow through which could give you the pulsating sensation. I'm not a doctor but I will be attending nursing school this year. This is just my two cents. Good luck!
