Throbbing In Blood Vessels?
why is there a vein that appears in front of the left ear, winding and throbbing, it seems like this vein spreads straight to the head … i guess it’s dangerous ..
Hello Henry M R,
Pulsations or pulses in the temporal part (the edge of the head including the area you mentioned) arise because there are superficial temporal arteries. This artery is a branch of the extra carotid artery in the neck. This arterial pulsation can be palpated in the zigomatic arch and in front of the ear tragus (in front of the ear). These superficial temporal arteries branch into arteries in the forehead, back and top of the head, in the upper part of the eye, the back ear arteries.
Generally the arteries are not visible from the surface of the skin but only feels the pulse. Curved veins that appear on the skin are veins, which usually go hand in hand with arteries, to bring back oxygen-poor blood back to the heart. Veins are located more to the surface of the skin, looking bluish or greenish.
Aside from being fingered using a finger, temporal blood vessel pulsation can be felt more in the following conditions:
Palpitations - palpitations, for example after exercising, after consumption of caffeine, an increase in heart rate beyond normal, etc. Migraine Tension headache (temporal type headache) Temporal arteritis Temporal pulses are normal, but if you feel them almost daily with headaches> 15 days a day 1 month, you should do an examination with a doctor to determine there are diseases that cause these symptoms. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
