I am 21 years old and last year had an echo, stress test and ekg and a holter everything was normal the doc said my heart would speed up or slow done for a beat or two but not to worry since it made me nervous he put me on inderal for 3 months then took me off my question is i have a vein on each side of my neck that sticks out and goes to right below my ear area i heard that distended neck veins are very bad so should i have this looked at or is it harmless and normal?
For most of my life my veins in my neck distend badly when I bend over etc.... It looks scary but I think after 10 years something bad would have already happened to me. Try to relax. I think you will be just fine.
PS: If you are still concerned you can ask for a Carotid Artery test, they do this by looking at your veins and how they carry blood. It is like getting a sonogram of your neck.I had one a few years back because of the same scenario I mentioned above in my previous post.
