At least I'm not alone. When I go on walks, this totally happens to me too. Sometimes it can be painful depending on how swollen my hands get.

Tingling could be caused by nerve entrapment while swelling of hands could be due to a few things such as reaction to certain foods, imbalance of electrolytes, tightened first, compressed clothing, etc.
If something doesn't feel good, it's a sign that something is wrong. It might not be a huge deal but it's more than likely your body telling you something isn't right whether it's something in your diet, your footwear, clothing, jewelry, or muscles being overused/underused.
When this happened to me I went to my chiro and then all was well after a total body adjustment!

I've had this as well, I was told to move my arms more instead of just keeping them at my side but I dont' remember if it was actually a dr or not who told me

It happens to me too. If I feel like my hands are swollen, I walk for a little while with my arms bent. I clench and unclench a fist and keep my hands up by my shoulders. This alleviates the swelling quite a bit.
i've had this too and for me it was related to dehydration.

I've had the same problem, but it doesn't seem as bad if I walk with my arms bend as it is if I let my arms hang down by my sides. I don't know the answer for this though.

Great article. Thanks! I have the same exact problem, but it never alarmed me because it goes away after I've cooled off. I just figured it was something normal, for me at least. But now I know it's ok!

Hey Kelli - mine swell up too...totally normal. My legs tingle sometimes too...I think it's just a reaction to the increased blood flow. I also notice my skin itches depending on my temperature before I work out, like if my body heats up too fast. All completely normal :-)

When I do walking for exercise, particularly outdoors, my hands/fingers tend to swell up and get itchy. It lasts for about an hour after I am done, too. Anybody else have this happen? And what should I do to keep it from happening?
