my mother suffers from chronic nasal allergies and sinuses, and she often gets head and neck aches from time to time .
and i keep noticing those veins, many of them popping out of her forehead. They look very scary.
what might be the cause of those veins?? and is it something serious??

Hi!
Yes, it is possible that stress can cause bulging vein in the forehead. Anything that increases the blood flow to the head area can cause a bulging vein. A bulging vein at the temple could be a normal finding—which may disappear with time. It could be due to increased blood pressure. Temporal arteritis is another possibility. Tension headaches too cause a bulging vein at the temple with headaches. First of all get your mother’s blood pressure checked. If this is high, then this needs to be controlled. Tension headache is often diagnosed by the symptoms alone. Clots in the vein and deep vein thrombosis are another possibility. Please consult your PCP to get your mother examined. Monitor her blood pressure. Get her eyes examined for sight problems like far or near sightedness. Keep a headache calendar, how the symptoms started, how they progressed, what medication you took and how and when they disappeared
Take care!
