I have noticed that my fingers swell much more when I'm running on days when I have had a lot of sodium. My hands used to swell at the time and I think it's because I was consistently eating way too much salt. Now that I track it on sparkpeople, I typically have a low sodium diet and my hands don't swell. On the days I eat more sodium that normal though, I now notice that my hands and feet swell more.
Interesting. I never worried about it because they always go back to normal eventually.

Thanks for posting this question! I have always (since a child) had this problem when I've been considerably active. And my fingers too are thinner in winter than in summer. I liked the link to Coach Dean's article about it from SP_COACH_NANCY. Please scroll down to the link and read it. He has some very good tips on things we can do to alleviate this during exercise. Thanks again for posting this question!
Ask your doctor- this can be many things from person to person.. If your worried about anything ask for a health check- this should be done always before starting any form of exercise.. I know what I am up against with my back and why I have a flat foot- I exercise basically without pain because I am taking consideration to known problems.. We can suggest stuff but if wrong it is you that gets hurt.. Ask the doctor why this happens to "YOU".
