What should I do if my wrist vein is swollen?

It has been like this for 2 days but there is no pain.


Answer by  alanschech (256)

First you should ice it and elevate it. An aspirin to thin the blood could help as well. If this doesn't, it could indicate high blood pressure and you should consider seeing a doctor. It may indicate some sort of a blockage as well.


Answer by  kevincai96 (669)

This could be a blockage. The pain being nonexistent is probably because of the blockage preventing the nerves in your wrist from transmitting pain to your brain. The point is, this is serious. Get to the doctor as soon as possible. Yes-the wrist is that important. Be careful, and try not to mess with the area and see a doctor.

If your wrist vein is swollen put ice on it. Ice will make the swelling go down. Also, you can take some asprin to thin your blood to help with it.

Well if your vein is swollen it may be a result of physical activity. Give it some time to heal and apply some creme such as polysporin to eat. You might want to massage the area.


Answer by  fishy (1085)

The best practice would be to elevate it and use it as little as possible. Ice may help. Avoid taking blood thinning medicines and see a doctor if it persists.

Personally, i would go get a plastic bag, fill it with some ice, and hold it on the area that hurts for about a half hour. Take an Asprin as well.


Answer by  jcmaata2000yahoocom (37)

If it is not too serious, you can usually apply warm compress and some pain suppressant such as Advil. If you're really traumatized about it, let the doctor know what the condition is, it might be Carpal Tunnel syndrome, a condition caused by irregular routines done by the palm such as using the PC mouse.

It may be an indication of high blood pressure. Contact your physician immediately or go to an Urgent Care Clinic to be checked out. It could also be an indication of bad circulation or a clot int he vein.

Nothing it is very common t break a vessel sometimes they will be so bad they will even bruise the surrounding skin and be very sore fdor a few days but dont worry it will go away on its own in a few days.


Answer by  JJP (360)

I would ice and elevate your wrist several times a day. Also try wrapping it with an ace bandage might help relieve the swelling as well. If you do wrap the wrist start by wrapping your hand and then wrap up towards your elbow this will right rid of fluid that is around your wrist if there is any.
