Could a vein collapse cause hand to have pain

Customer Question

Could a vein collapse cause hand to have pain

Hi Dr. Ashori here.

Yes, it is possible, the nerve can collapse and die off which isn't dangerous but usually you would get bruising in the area as well. And yes, pain will develop which can last a few weeks.

Is this what is going on with your hand?

Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 11 months ago.

This can happen from dehydration or trauma to the hand.
