This one is so weird that I wasnt going to post about it and its taken me an hour to decide to do so (if I think its really weird, who knows what any medical people here would think about this). It's to do with the blue veins SUDDENLY being prominent in my hands, fingers and wrists (I dont know if it also was affecting other veins of my body to, I think my arms veins were affected too (I forget even thou this just happened an hour ago). Just as suddenly as it occurs, after a very short time, it can just as suddenly go away. Ive just had it happen to me again (they only were very prominent for about 5-10mins, I was going to take photos and now wish I had but I wasnt expecting it to disappear again so quick) and Ive had it happen to me once before maybe a year ago. (If it happens again, Im going to get while happening and after happening photos). I cant remember the circumstances in which it happened with last time but this time Im quite sick with virally ME symptoms (hoping they arent about to go into pneumonia, they feel worst then when I was in hospital on a drip for double pneumonia last time) and had woken up due to breathing issues (the symptoms currently affecting my chest and my asthma puffer isnt helping this). Anyway. has anyone else here had this weird veiny thing go on in which their veins SUDDENLY go standing out? Ive just started trying to research this symptom to see what I could find and saw its spoken about on a FM thread http://www.medhelp.org/posts/Fibromyalgia/Highly-noticable-veins/show/788408 (and someone there mentions that heart muscle weakness can cause heart vein bulging issues... maybe during these bouts my heart has stopped working well but then its coming good and hence the situation then suddenly goes again??). Anyway, i hope it doesnt happen again, seeing that occur and not knowing why is kind of scary. This symptom is so weird that Im scared of telling a doctor about it (and I havent gone to doctor over my breathing issues currently as I dont have one locally and I know from my dr experiences that I just cant go to any of them without a recommendation that they are good for a ME person. If my breathing gets worst and Im going to pass out due to it, I'll just ring an ambulance (its just affecting my ability to talk at times, I was on phone before having some trouble speaking due to it, couldnt talk normally). If I die in my sleep or something, I hope people here wont forget me (my current viral reactivation thing going on right now is due to the stupid conditions that DisabilitySA has put on my support contract, which Helene told me verbally.. which caused me to over do it as I cant be in bed while support workers are here so prevented me from doing the pacing I knew I needed to not get sicker). If anything happens to me, I want to make sure its out there what happened and why Im sicker. anyway, heading back to bed now, I just wanted to post about this weird symptom in case something happens.
