Bulging Veins, Enlarged Veins, Muscle Cramps Or Spasms And Muscle Twitching (Painless)

Reviewed on 6/15/2020

Bulging veins may be seen in an athlete, especially after a workout in hot weather. They can also appear with varicose veins seen in aging, pregnancy, obese people, and those with heart failure, or cirrhosis. They can also occur in the setting of a venous blood clot. Sometimes varicose veins are inherited. When veins get infected (thrombophlebitis) or too large, or are caused by a clot, they can sometimes throb or ache. Cramping and muscle twitching is not seen with dilated veins.
