What causes sharp pain and purple vein in palm area?
Possible RP and PVD.?Needs Confirmation.
I understand your concern.
Yes certainly this could indicate a vascular disorder,more aptly called peripheral vascular disorder/PVD.
This can present with colour changes and pain.
This is called Raynaud's phenomenon/RP.
I advise you to get a Colour Duplex scan of the blood vessels in the involved upper limb.
This can detect any organised blood clots or blood vessel pathology.
Further management is based on the test results.
Post your further queries if any.
Thanks for reviewing my situation and providing the information. I've attached two photos that show what the area looked like after the swelling went away. These were taken at least a few hours after it happened. You'll see a purple colored triangle below the area described - underneath my index finger. It is still a little tender with some slight pain when I press on it today. I wanted to provide the followup and photos after this happening. What causes the purple color and slight pain a day later?
Changes are part of the process.
This is how the changes proceed in Raynaud's Phenomenon.
Initial blockade of blood vessel will cause whitening or swelling.
Later this will cause cyanotic changes leading to purple colour.
These changes are accompanied by pain.
