I am a 32 year old female, who weighs 150 lbs and 5.9 feet tall. I have been experiencing a burning, stinging, or intensely sharp pain in different areas of my body, which always seems to be coming from a vein or artery on my neck where carotid is, in the leg, foot, arm, and temple. I have also noticed spider veins appearing in different locations. I have EDS (hypermobile type), a mildly dilated aortic root, and I am on beta blockers for arrhythmia and blood pressure. I have been experiencing occasional light-headedness and fatigue. Sometimes, I have shortness of breath, especially, when in the heat, but when I take my BP, it has been good lately. Should I be concerned? Is stinging, burning or sharp pain normal along veins, or is it possible it is just nerves that run alongside the vessels that I am feeling instead? Spider veins showing up on legs, ribcage, feet, and all over my breasts. I have multiple spider angiomas on arms and legs as well.

Thank you for your response. Yes, I have yearly echocardiograms done to monitor if there are any changes in my aortic root dilation, and my next one will be next month. As far as I know, other than what is on routine blood work, I have not had any other tests done on my liver. I had an ultrasound of my gallbladder two years ago, but I still have pain under my right ribcage nearly every day. The sensations I described seem to be worse at night and even wake me from my sleep. Not sure if related, but I also have an increased need to urinate after lying down as well. Despite limiting my fluid intake before bed and attempting to empty my bladder a few times before actually falling asleep, I still have to get up in the middle of the night to go. I am not very concerned that it is related to my issues, but I do feel the need to mention that MS does strongly run on my mother's side of the family, including my mother. Is having these issues primarily at night normal for EDS?
