I also have ever multiplying spider veins on my face (and nope I am not a drinker ; )) and legs,
sometimes small blood vessels in my fingers and toes do, I think, just burst- without any reason (no knocks or whatever)- it feels like someone suddenly stabs a needle in my finger/toe and wildly wriggles/stabs it around and then I’m left with a deep and “bloddy under the skin’ bruise that takes ages to go away
( and of course I frequently ‘normally'(meaning without the ‘needle stabbing’ feeling, actually dont feel it at all, bruise ‘without any reason’), my veins are v visible (though I think that’s in part due to my v thin skin)-
Wow bearcat, you’re the first person I’ve come across who also has the strange small blood vessel ruptures in the fingers. I went to my family doc with it and he was stumped, but didn’t seem to think too much of it. I wondered if it was connected to the EDS. My diagnosis is classical with possible vascular, but my insurance wouldn’t pay for the genetic testing so the jury’s still out on that one. I’m sorry you have that crazy symptom, but glad to see that it’s not just me.
All the best to you.
