Bleeding and Clotting Disorders

Painful Arm Veins



Hello, What do you think would be the cause for the veins in my arm to feel crimped and painful? I have 8% factor VIII and von willebrand. My blood is too thin for clots. I have HBP also. Thank you so much.


There really is no good explanation for the symptoms that you feel in your veins. The only thing that would give symptoms would be a thrombosis, or if there was a ruptured vein, you would see a bruise. There really isn't any other good explanation, and it is difficult to do much more in this forum.

If the symptoms persist, I would recommend that you see your physician.
