Popped blood vessels on lower back

Hello. I am a 29 year old male. This morning when I woke up my wife noticed some popped blood vessels on the lower half of my back. There are alot of them and they are centered mostly around my spine. They are somewhat sore to the touch and don't blanch when pressed. I have not participated in any rigorous physical activity lately. I've never had this happen before and am somewhat concerned. Is this something I should be worried about?

Hi,

Are there other symptoms present? Popped blood vessel may indicate obstruction somewhere along the vessel line  or  with circulatory problems. Have this evaluated further for proper management.  A complete blood count may also be done. A change of diet, special clothing to help promote circulation and sometimes medication may be indicated.

Take care and keep us posted.

I have the exact same symptoms, except I have developed pain associated with the area of the lower back with the burst blood vessels.  I need professional advice, but this is America and it costs dearly to visit doc.  Why are we behind so much as a nation?  It's a poor do.  Also, I have been cycling a lot so I suspect the ruptures are because of me leaning over to meet the handlebars.  damn, I wish I didn't get that DUI :(  My pain is so bad I need to be on Ibuprofen around the clock

This is known as Erythema-Ab- Igne.Skin change due to heat source. Though not much of a problem may cause difficulties in later years. No special treatment than to reduce or avoid the inciting source.
