Question: My Fiancé has an enlarged or bulging vein on the inside part of her wrist. No real pain, just a little sore if she moves it/squeezes things.
This just started yesterday after we got back from the beach.
Should we be worried?

Brief Answer:
Enlarged vein is not a problem.

Detailed Answer:
Enlarged vein is not a problem.
It will cause complications when it gets infected and inflammed, a condition called Thrombophlebitis.
I prescribe Ointment called THROMBOPHOBE to my patients with similar complaints.
If the pain is severe,she can take Anti inflammatory tablet twice daily after food till symptoms subside.
Hope I answered your query.
If you have any questions, I will clarify further.
Wish you good health.
