Swollen vein in palm, burning sensation, tingling fingers. Have high blood pressure

Just researching. The vein in the palm of my hand was swollen-blue-burning pain. Not sure if it was a concern, since it occured around the same time I was moving my wrist to grab my cell phone. Just checking symptoms, fingers were feeling slightly tingly. The vein swelling is now going down, almost gone. Since I have high blood pressure I wanted to check. I did call my Dr. Office, nurse said I probably bruised it, just wanted to research myself.

Dear patient,

Thanks for your health concerns. Compression and flexion movements can make the superficial veins more evident; if they return back to their baseline state after some rest like in your case, I would not worry to much about it. If there is persistent pain and swelling on the contrary then additional investigations may be warranted.

Yours truly,
