I have just noticed small lumps in my forearm vein - just my left one. They look like bbs just under the surface spaced about .5 to 1 inch apart up the vein. They don't hurt, I just found it odd that they would only be in one arm and that I had just noticed it recently. Is there anything to worry about, does anyone else have these?

That's what you have. Stress from blood supply overload, weakened walls or a faulty valve. I had the same thing. It eventually ruptured but since the pressure is so low it is more a pain to deal with than anything. After it ruptured the blood that accumulated, a small amount the size of a pea, hardened and then it hurt a little. I went to the doc and he cut it out in the office and stitched me up( 3 stiches). It was in my right forearm. A nuisance for sure but just to be safe have it looked at by your Doc before it ruptures.
