View Full Version : veins

05-23-2006, 07:10 PM
At the end of my training yesterday, my forearm veins were quite visible and ropey (not that unusual, I know). However, they itched and burned. It took about 20 minutes or more for the sensation to go away.

Have others experienced this?

Not the itching/burning, no.

A number of times I've experienced that all over my torso skin after an intense HIIT session on a hot day...doubt it's related but I thought the sensation was really weird too!

It means you're dying.

Maybe it's like hemorrhoids -- those itch and burn. Or so I'm told :unsure: .

Sometimes when I do cardio my legs get itchy, mabye it's something like that.

dunno...allergic reaction to something in your detergent?

I've felt this way after cardio, too. I think it's the sweat getting in my pores causing the itchiness because it goes away after I shower.

Me too on the skin itchiness.

Maybe is has to do with bodywash or lotion or something in the pores...?

I've heard that after getting a massage in an area that has been tight, it itches when blood flow increases to that area. Maybe this is the case with weights-you are increasing blood to the area. Who knows-but I'm sure you're not going to die :p
