Anorexics have similar,. critical self-perceptions. In some cases its called muscle dysmorphia. Our bodies, tissues, organs, etc. are in a constant state of flux. Calorie and water intake can affect this, as well as many other factors. I wouldnt worry about it, unless an underlying disease is the cause. Its normal for weight lifting males to be somewhat concerned about the size of their arms. The bottom line is genetics, you wont get any bigger than your DNA says you will. Perhaps your DNA is conversing with you.

There are so many factors in this
Inflammation from training
Don't be hyper critical of it. I use my vascularity as a gauge for my relative hydration/glycogen levels, but I don't fret too much when they're not visible.

I go by the weight on the scale and how I look in the mirror. As long as the scale is going up and I'm not getting fat, I'm good.

When i ate less and trained hardcore i would be visibly smaller days after due to not eating properly and/or catibolism.
I used to ride this neverending rollercoaster not really getting much stronger and being a "hardgainer" it was only hard to gain cause i didnt eat enough healthy foods and i had a very fast metbolism.
