Question: I have a swollen vein on the underside of my wrist. I had quite a bit of physical therapy on that wrist for tendonitis, which helped, but left me with what looks like a swollen vein in the wrist. I get shooting pains in it occasionally. Could it have been exacerbated by the physical therapy? It does not look like a gangelone cyst.
