my neck is hurting and swollen where the vein is?

User Profile
First off, sorry if this is in the wrong area.

Hi everyone, I was wondering if you could clear things up for me or let me know what might be going on. I'm 17 years old and pretty unhealthy for my age.. Weight wise.
The past few days I've noticed that I have intensely dark veins everywhere. I'm fair skinned, so I'm used to it, but this is more intense than usual. Today I've noticed that my neck (right side) is hurting and swollen where the vein is, and I'm wondering if this is something to worry about or not? Could this be a sign of a blood clot? And if it is, would that lead to stroke?

I also have chest pain, but I don't know whether that pain is just from me having anxiety about this or not.
