    I just increased the LDN to 3mg a few days ago. I get this weird pain overall, but the weird thing is that last night my hands were hurting, when I looked down I saw my veins like popping out of my hands, the blue ones, I have seen this happens to me specially after showers or exercise.

    I am trying to figure if this is a normal symptom or something I should mention to the Dr as a clue of something going on? or is it a natural side effect of LDN?

    If it's new, and you are rather certain it is related to LDN, I do not see any harm in mentioning it, unless the Dr hesitantly prescribed LDN, and you think this will give them a reason to withdraw the med!

    PS Is the pain bearable or worse?

    I've always had this, even before the LDN and especially in hot summer weather or exercise.

    Do you happen to have bartonella? Or have you had your VEGF levels checked?

    Pain is better in the rest of the body now. But in the hand is persisting almost intolerable but just because of the movement, will try to get something to wrap it to minimize the movements.

    Marlene,
    VEGF levels checked? What is that, I guess I haven't if I don't know that it is.
