Popped Blood Vessel

This happened couple times before but i never really paid attention to it but it was never as tender as this time… but i was deadlifting, and while pulling a maximal load, a blood vessel in my right arm popped right by the bicep/elbow area.

It was kind of tender to the touch for a while but it’s fine now. like no pain whatsoever…

nothing to worry about right?

or should i still ice this or something…

Yeah, if it’s not interfering with range of motion and there’s no pain during movement or to the touch, I’d just treat it like a normal bruise. Maybe pop some extra vitamin C. And ice seems to fix everything. Kinda like the duct tape of the medical universe.
