    Question Dark visible veins

    Just wondering if anyone could help me with this question. In the past few months I have noticed that I have become very VERY veiny I mean I can practically see every vein in both legs and have very blue visible veins around each elbow and down arms. I have always been able to see veins but nowhere near this dark and they just showed up one day out of nowhere. I also see them on my chest and stomach just not as dark. They are not varicose and not painful. I also posted this on thyroid since they developed right after I was diagnosed hypothyroid and started meds but have had no answers and can not find visible veins listed anywhere as a symptom. Any ideas? Thanks

    I really don't know, but I hope you find some answers. Maybe it's a reaction to the meds you are taking?

    It's because your skin is transparent and/or thin and your veins are closer to the surface.

    I have the same thing.....and I don't like it at all. It's gotten worse as I'm getting older.

    Self-tanner will help them to not be so noticable as would a slight natural tan (melanin increase) -- but there are obvious side effects (tanning) if done consistently.

    I inherited mine......soon they'll be able to use me as a vein model!!

    It's all a matter of perspective!
