I was showering today and noticed a lot of bright purplish-red veins leading up under my navel. I don't recall them being there yesterday, and they look rather alarming. I've tried Googling for information, and it says it can be connected to weight gain, but I don't know if they generally happen this suddenly. Should I see a doctor about them?

Are they still visible now?

Whenever there is a bodily change the cause of which we're unsure, it's a sound idea to check it out with a health care provider.

They're fainter now I'm not in a steamed-up bathroom, but still visible. I'll call the doctor in the morning if they're still there.

Next available doctor's appointment is in two weeks [Frown] Since it's not an emergency, I guess I'll leave it for now.
