Pain and swollen vein in wrist

01/30/2007

Question:

I am a 25 year old female and my right wrist started to hurt a few days ago I noticed that the vein on the inner side of my wrist was bulging a bit and to touch was a little painful, even the hairs on my skin seemed sencitive it has gone down but am not sure what could have happened any suggestions?

Answer:

Not having the benefit of being able to see the vein, it may be just some local trauma or irritation to the vein. A warm compress and Advil may help.
