Re: Pulsating vein
that is more than likely not a vein you are seeing but the brachial artery. it really should not be that close to the surface where you can actually even see it tho,all of our arterys are usually much deeper for protection of them vs the veins that sit more towards the surface. this could be a couple of things actually that i can think of off the top of my head(i am sure there are others too) but it could be that that particular vein is sitting on top of that brachial and making it "appear" as tho its the vein that is actually throbbing. OR, it could be a higher than normal BP going on?
veins actually carry very low pressure within their walls with the arterys carrying the much higher pressures. you should never actually see a vein itself actually throbbing. if it actually is this vein,it really does need to be evaluated by your doc soon. you just really need to find out what is going on in that area just to make certain it isn;t a symptom of something else. just see your doc about thisand have them fully evaluate it. trying to actually Dx this just on a forum is pretty difficult,espescially when you cannot see it,ya know? hopefully iti s just the placement of your brachial that is making it appear this way right now. but get it checked soon. please keep me posted as to what you find out,K? **
