Question enlarged veins, nerve tests, etc

Can fibromyalgia cause veins to enlarge (particularly on the hands)?
Also, if the nerves are bothersome, why wouldn't it show up as a problem on a nerve test where electrodes are used?

Are there certain activities one should avoid if that activity causes pain?

And out of sheer curiosity, how could a woman become pregnant with such a condition? It would seem unbearable.

Re: enlarged veins, nerve tests, etc

Hello

are you getting spasms when your veins enlarges?

I also have enlarged veins on hands. Initially I had vasodilation constantly for about a month and during that time, I had muscle spasms on hands everyday. nowaday, my veins dilate only when I get spasms or cramps.
I think it's something that's assosiate with the spasms.
I noticed that elevating arm helped with pain when I get vasodilation.
I asked Dr. about it, but she didn't make a such big deal out of it, she just said it's normal for veins to dilate when gravity is pulling. I couldn't convince her that it is a symptom.
I also did EMG which is nerve conduction test, it will tell you if something is wrong with your nerve or muscle. In my case, it came out normal.

I hope you feel better.
