Large dark blue veins under tongue, infected pic line, blood clots, multiple myeloma. Causes?

My wifes veins under her tongue are very large bulging and dark blueish in colour. This started a while ago however the veins are getting larger. She has had migraines for the past few days. I m concerned because she had a pic line that got very infected and developed a few blood clots from that. She is currently on 20mg of Xarelto for the clots. She also have a immune diffeciency & 1st stage Multiple Myeloma ( proteins currently stable). She receives IVIG treatments every 3 weeks. Looking for a reason for the large veins under her tongue.

Welcome to healthcare magic forum.

I have read your concern.

The enlargement of veins under tongue may be probably caused due to-Adverse effect of medicines administered.

I would suggest you to visit your physician,get the alternative medication .

Meanwhile,take a balanced nutritious diet.

Include plenty of fluids as well as fruits with leafy vegetables into your diet.

Usually in such cases,vitamin b and iron supplements has to be administered.

Take care.
