    I have veins that seen to bulge out a lot in my hands and feet... Only started happening when I got anxious. Someone else on this forum told me it happened to them too, but that their doctor said that can be due to muscle tension, which is very classic to anxiety. It seems to happen to me especially when I get freaked out, although it happens a lot randomly too.

    Never risk your health, because your worried that people may think you are making a drama. It sounds very serious and worth checking with your doctor. Persist until you feel satisfied with the answers they give you. Health problems can go undetected and then flare up; especially in extreme conditions, such as this heat wave, with pollen and pollution and dry weather on top. Have your blood pressure monitored and ask for a referral to a Consultant who could check your circulatory system including your heart and ot an ENT referral may be of use.

    Anxiety can be a symptom and can also make us feel physically worse. You have justifiable concerns. You sound very stressed and this may make your sleep worse. Perhaps you should try to get some holistic support for this, as it will also help your other challenges and could also be a symptom of your physiological complaints. You may be waking with panic attacks which are affecting your sleep phases.

    If your bodily system is under stress, perhaps you could discusss medications to help your sinus infection; antibiotics if it's gone on longer than a week, perhaps saline drops or spray, steaming may help (although be careful not to get too hot in this weather). You will need more fluids than normal, even for a heatwave;...if you also have an infection. Sometimes when the body is dehydrated, it can wake us up and affect our circulation too. We can feel much more holistically stressed.

    Some of my worse sinusitis infections have been lacking mucus and stuffiness at points and sometimes at all, becuase the sinuses are so wide ranging - every case has to be assessed individually. Sometimes the symptoms seem atypical, but are just as severe, sometimes more so. if you may have a chronic circulatory problem then infections may be more intrangible. Again fluids may aid the body to expell what it needs to better & a range of them, to balance the body's electrolytes. The problem that you have had for a year may also compiund any symptoms of an infection and vice versa.

    I hope you feel much better soon! Nalia~
