Painful knots in my veins



Dear Professionals, I have some painful knots in my veins. One is in my right thigh and has been there for some time. The second is in a major vein down the right side of my neck. The third is on my upper right arm between two muscles. They are not going away. I have read your forums and no, I have not done any heavy lifting. Thank you!


It is unusual to have pain in veins in many different locations at one time. I would recommend you see your doctor.
