Bright Blue veins when standing??
I don't know if this is the best board to post, but since I have such good rapport with so many on the board I figured I would ask advice from my friends.
I currently have hbp and Svts, but both seem to be under control. I have been doing pretty good on an exercise program started after the first of the year. Been doing a mile and a half every other day on the treadmill and have been feeling great.
This past week I kind of slacked off because of working late hours, and noticed that my blue veins in my arms and upper chest were really vibrant.
The last day I treadmilled was last Thursday and I did 3 and a quarter miles in 45 minutes. Well, I missed a few days until last night I did a mile and a half in 20 minutes.
I went up to shower a hour afterward, and noticed in the mirror that my veins seemed to be more apparent than normal. They were just so blue that you couldn't miss them. I went ahead and sat on the bed and took my blood pressure to be safe and it was 114/68. A nice normal number after a treadmill night. The veins seemed to disappear and I went to sleep.
This morning when I woke up, I noticed those same veins, very blue and very apparent. Blood pressure check was 118/72.
My left shoulder and arm have been sore for the past day, but it feels like a muscle issue rather than a vein issue.
Should I be worried??
