This answer was rated:

I noticed a few weeks ago that on both temples, a vein seems enlarged. Mostly it is the left side and it seems to happen most when I am stressed, irritated, etc. I am on Losarton although never been diagnosed with HBP. My physician had put me on that because I am always stressed since I run 3 companies and am feeling the pressure at times. I am 61 years old and otherwise, very active. When I am actually in a height of anxiety, the left temple vein stands out and is very visible. Any thoughts?
Hello and welcome,

The temple veins can get prominent when we are stressed. This is because of the muscles of temple going in spasm or more contracted state. This hampers the blood flow of the veins and there is stagnation of the blood in them. So they look fuller and more prominent. This is not indicative of any medical condition if there is no associated other symptoms.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
