View Full Version : Weird veins

I don't know if this is related, but I thought I would go ahead and ask anyway.

While looking at my face in the mirror (examing the blush after I had been in a hot car) I noticed that I have these tiny little veins on my face that you can see. It's like 3 tiny veins that spider out. it's really not that noticible unless your looking for it.

Is this a lupus thing or am I just getting old? LOL

I have funky sticking out veins, too... Not on my face... But everywhere else... it's like they get swollen and pop out all over my body!!

I know not very helpful, huh?

It's so weird that I have so many symptoms as well as diagnostic criteria, yet no diagnosis. Still waiting on blood work a WHOLE WEEK LATER.

I'll be very surpised if I DONT have it. I just wish I had an answer one way or the other. And if it's not Lupus, then WTH is going on?

Yeah... It helps to have a name... Because then at least they can try to treat it... :( I hope you find out soon!!

I sure hope you get an answer soon!

I have the veins, too.

Sorry you haven't gotten your bloodwork back. It took me nine years to get diagnosed, even though I always had at least four of the diagnostic criterea. I had a lot of horrible Doctors. I hope you get some info soon!
