Pain in wrist, swollen blue vein. Anything to worry about?

Hello! I was just putting the kids to bed and felt a slightly stinging, slightly achy pain on the bottom side of my wrist (the side you see when your palm faces up). I looked at it and the vein appears swollen and looks very blue. It isn t very painful and is only slightly annoying but it is definitely something you can see. From far away it looks like a big bruise but if you touch it you can feel a bit of swelling . Is this anything to worry about? Otherwise I feel completely fine. Thanks!

Hi, Thanks for writing into us.

Nothing to worry. The condition you have described is due to hard work only. I don't know whether you are female in gender. When lot of blood comes to the surface it will occur. Remote possibilities are post op complications, blunt injury. Apply turmeric paste to palm and take rest. Wish you a speedy recovery.
