Has anyone ever had a sore vein? My wrist has been hurting for a few days and i thought it was my joint but my vein is swollen and sore on the side of my wrist. It’s the vein that’s hurting when i bend my wrist. Will this just get better on it’s own or should i see my gp?

My rule of thumb is, any problem that isn’t showing any signs of getting better by itself after a week, or is getting worse in less time, should be seen by a GP. I’d ring and make an appointment for early next week - you can always cancel it if your wrist does get better over the weekend.
