i have tightness in my arms and hands some redness in my hands. it feels as if they are going to bust. it feels like when your hooked up to the blood preasure machine at the doctors office or at the store when your vitals are taken. or the rubber band around your arm when your blood is going to be taken and your veins pop out. thats the feeling i'm getting. What could that be? i'am also taking a diet pill called NV haven't had a problem with it so far I've been taking them on and off for a month now.

Hi. Given your history and present symptoms, I believe that the most important entity to consider now and eventually rule out is the possibility of a venous thrombosis. This can be an unusual side effect of your hypertension medication, or can be due to idiopathic causes. This is characterized by obstruction of the veins impeding venous return from the involved extremity. This would be manifested as tension, erythema and pain of the involved arm or leg. I suggest you have this seen by your doctor and possibly run some tests such as venous doppler studies to facilitate evaluation of the venous drainage. Regards.
