Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 3 years ago.
Hello,

How long the veins are like this?

Do you have pain, tenderness or any symptom in the tongue?

When did you start taking temazepam?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

today was the first time i noticed it

 

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 3 years ago.
Thank you for the information,

Temazepam is unlikely to be the cause of it.

You can read this link for its side effects.

http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/meds/a684003.html#side-effects

The vein may have been in this condition without any disease condition.

If you think it is exceptionally big & blue , you can get it checked by doctor.

Sometimes local inflammation or obstruction to venous drainage can cause it to be bigger than normal.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Regards.

i also have copd would that have anything to do with it?
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 3 years ago.
If you have excessive cough, then the vein can be engorged.

If the oxygen saturation is less, it can be bluish.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
no i do not have excessive cough
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 3 years ago.
It can be that it was there normally like this, you did not notice.

However, it is better to have look by your doctor to get it confirmed.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
no it was not there normally not like that, but my mouth has been very try, in the mornings i freak out when i noticed it tonite
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 3 years ago.
Then you should get it checked by your doctor.

As I told there can be an inflammation or blockage of the vein.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
one more question i do get restapory infections and my chest feels tight
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 3 years ago.
Tightness in the chest can be felt in COPD due to increased air trapping & pressure within thorax.

If the intrathoracic pressure is raised then there can be difficulty in venous return to heart which can cause engorgement of veins.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
is this serious or is it something i can wait on for cuople of days
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 3 years ago.
If you do not feel any symptom, then you can wait a few days for an examination.
