To answer your question about pain in your veins, an embolism (traveling blood clot) can cause pain that travels through the vascular system (arteries
and veins), so yes, there can be transient pain with your veins. Is there a family history of cardiovascular disease in your family? heart problems?
strokes? Is this the first time you have had this occur? (sorry but I am a nursing student so we dig for info!)....Embolisms can cause very serious
problems. Aspirin is also an antiplatelet which helps prevent blood clots. If any of this is making sense to you, you may want to make an appointment
with your doctor or NP. Just wanted to give you some feedback on your question...if you need any further info just ask.
Thank you fort the advice, yes, my family - being of pommie origin and used to the old english breakfast - have a history of stroke and diabetes, but
I'm the black sheep in this respect. I eat healthy, and up until a few years ago, I looked after myself above any of my relatives, who .. if put in a
room, I'd deny being related to. I don't much like my family.
But it is there.
My old man was on blood thinners right up till 94 when he died, and his brother died of a heart attack many years before - yet all the rest of these
morons eat eggs on fat, and chips with a side order of fat and fat with a large helping of fat... I don't however. So I know the hereditary nature of
my family, but I have opted for a healthier lifestyle - I might not live up to it these days, but I watch what I eat.
I try to anyway, and I cannot remember the last time I ate fast food. I cook all my own disgusting stuff, maybe twice a year. other than that, I make
sure I know what goes in.
sadly, I know none of that negates the possibility of such things as you say, but I'm hoping it's just the strain I went through the other day as
mentioned. I've just never had a pain appear to move - so I'm taking all advice on board.
And seeing a doc on tuesday this week, I'll mention it.
I'm sure it's nothing, just it kinda kept niggling at me, and I know the first place to run is NOT ATS for medical advice.
ha, but if not here,
then it's the neighbours if I had one last breath, and they'd just throw sand on me and tell me to turn the music down. Lol
Where the actual pain is, I feel the tendons and veins in my right arm, no matter if I tense the arm or not, and thats what it was on the other arm
yesterday, thats what made it stick in my mind.
I'm sure I'm fine.. *fingers crossed
* nah, it's a relief to have posted it and had reassurance, and your post adds to the fact I'll make sure
to mention it. if not, the neighbours will just have to put up with the smell sans the loud music
Feel a bit silly really, if it was getting worse, I'd feel more worried.. but the beer and the late time, in combination with other insight has
helped me put it at ease... It's the sort of pain that I only feel if I look for it. the more I do, the more I get worried. arm jumping pain,
Cheers though, much appreciated, and if I'm still around after easter, ... Sorry about all that, lol
