After excersizing, or even just WALKING my fingers swell up?!?
Answers: Cut way down on your salt intake.
You may have high blood pressure. Get checked by a doctor as soon as possible.
I get that too.
Could be due to blood pooling in the fingers, since they're held down at your sides.
Hi Hamie. This is a classic sign of a condition called "Thoracic Outlet Syndrome" (TOS). TOS is a group of conditions in the neck/shoulder area that can compress the artery, nerves, vein and/or lymphatics that feed into the arm and hand. Generally, swelling of the hand suggests compression of the veins and/or lymphatic vessels.
TOS is usually the long-term result of a whiplash type of injury (e.g. car accident, fall, sports injury, etc.). This condition often gets progressively worse, so you may want to get professional help with it. A good Chiropractor can help you diagnose and treat this condition.
Best wishes and good luck.
I don't think you should worry too much about that...it happens almost every time I go for a long walk and am swinging my arms around. Actually, I think it happens to quite a lot of people... The swelling should go down after you stop whatever it is you're doing and sit and relax for a few minutes.
