The
Right arm feels swollen compared to my left arm.

And it looks darker in one area.

I don't have any pain or anything. But like I said it looks bigger then the other arm.
I haven't been doing much but laying down all day and doing my homework.

I am right handed and been writing a lot.

But I still don't know if I should go to the emergency room.
I don't want Togo for no reason.
Can someone with advice on this please wrote to me
I am
Freking out

Do you have redness, swelling or tingling? Also,pinch your thumbnail til itself white, then release. If color comes back quickly, that's a good sign of good circulation.

With no pain or redness or tingling, I'd say you're unlikely to have a blood clot

I'm not gonna be liable for your actions so I won't tell you what to do....but usually you can call a nurse line and that may help quell your fears. The ER is costly and you said there is no pain. I'd wait a while to see what happens, that's just me. Best of luck.

I don't have any redness.
Or tingling .

It just appears swollen compared to my
Left one .

And you can see through my skin and you can see a big vein!!!!

Then !!! When I touch it with my finger it feels like a huge swollen vein.
It's creeping me
Out.

So did you say squeeze
My
Thumb? Or squeeze my nail?

Please help me
Figure out if I should go to the emergency room.

I go to the emergency room too many times I wanna
Make sure if I go it's because it's something Togo for.

I know you arnt liable . I just want to know what you would do, if you went to the bathroom, as
You go to wash your hands
You notice your right arm has a vein that looks darker then usual.????

Then when I saw that I started to get a huge anxiety attack and I touch my vein and it seems kinda big idk how I explain it. And I have random muscle twitches around my body.

I don't really feel any pain or anything yet

The veins in my left arm are more noticeable than the ones in my right arm. In fact, there's a vein you can't see in my right on my left. That's normal.

And the blanching test is when you pinch your thumbnail. Also, if you have a pulse in your wrist you are likely okay as well.

You were laying on your bed doing your homework and writing a lot and are right handed? That is your answer. I lay in bed and read a lot. Usually when I get up the viens in one arm look more noticable than the other. It's ok. If you had a blood clot your arm would be noticably whiter than the other, it would be hot to the touch, hurt and be very, very numb.

You're showing essentially no signs of a blood clot, so I would try to go do something that will get your mind off of things.
