Hi, my vein is clotted in my right middle finger (palm side). I felt a sharp pain while doing housework. Then I saw the vein bloated. I’ve googled it is called palmar digital vein thrombosis. What can I do to fix it? It hurts the moment I exert pressure to do normal daily activities like opening a bottle. Maybe my yoga practice was too intense this morning?
