Bleeding and Clotting Disorders

Painful Arm Veins

01/12/2010

Question:

Hello, What do you think would be the cause for the veins in my arm to feel crimped and painful? I have 8% factor VIII and von willebrand. My blood is too thin for clots. I have HBP also. Thank you so much.

Answer:

There really is no good explanation for the symptoms that you feel in your veins. The only thing that would give symptoms would be a thrombosis, or if there was a ruptured vein, you would see a bruise. There really isn't any other good explanation, and it is difficult to do much more in this forum.

If the symptoms persist, I would recommend that you see your physician.
