Welcome to JustAnswer Health...and thank you for your question. I am a verified Expert and am delighted to help you today.WHile she may not recall, she may have had a bit of trauma to the area or she may have slept with her wrist bent or pressure on the wrist which may have caused irritation to the vein. A warm compress and ibuprofen according to package directions will help this feel better. Does she have any nymbness in any fingers..if so..which ones?
