Superficial Vein Leak in Forearm
Hard to believe my problem is so rare I can't find it on Mayo Connect, but that's what's bringing me to start a discussion. A superficial vein on the inside of my forearm bled overnight, causing a subcutaneous bruise about 6 inches long and two inches wide with varying amounts of blood ranging from dark maroon along the vein to light discoloration around the rest of the bruise. No blood has leaked out, no pain is apparent, and I've recognized no other symptoms. Anybody with an athletic lifestyle have a similar experience?
