THERE IS NO TEMPTATION TAKEN YOU BUT SUCH AS IS COMMON TO MAN; BUT GOD IS FAITHFUL, WHO WILL NOT SUFFER YOU TO BE TEMPTED ABOVE THAT YOU ARE ABLE BUT WILL WITH TEMPTATION ALSO MAKE A WAY OF ESCAPE THAT YOU MAY BE ABLE TO BEAR IT.

I too become dehydrated while walking in the heat, even early morning. I purchase a excellent water bottle that is attached to devise that slips over my had like a hand weight.

Thanks for all of your suggestions.... The article was quite informative.

I have been carrying 1lbs weights in my hands a few times when walking and didn't have any swelling. The hydration is a very important fact.... so I will incorporate that into my exercise routine... again Thank you emoticon emoticon

I read the article that DAVIDMAC1 posted just the other day and was going to post it. But he beat me to it, b/c I have a lot of swelling in my hands and feet most of the time. My swelling is b/c my feet have had a lot of surgeries on them while I was growing up and prolong standing causes it too. And I am disabled from it and all. Poor blood circulation causes my foot problems as well the doctors have told me. I have limit my walking and I love to walk when it's nice and not too hot outside. I cut out the salt in my meals about 6 years ago, so if you eat at my home; you would have bland diet. You would have to salt on your meal and I do keep it in my home.
Thank you, DAVIDMAC1 for posting it.

When I was in cardiac rehab I was told to drink water, before, during and after walking and exercising.

I expect to pass through this life but once. If, therefore, there can be any kindness I can show, or any good thing that I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now as I shall not pass this way again.

I read somewhere recently that you should drink a little water every 15 minutes when exercising... so that sounds about right when you look at the pattern you described. I agree, you should definitely take it with you!

I had the same problem until I started drinking water while walking. I used a football field. Everytime I did two laps I would drink water. I got my bottle from Walgreen's which have a strap which is long enough to wear. Try it.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthen me!!!

one thing there caught my eye..the water..you are waiting to drink it until you come back go with it and drink on a regular basis as you noted you drink the water and the swelling disappears..you are dehydrating and the blood and lymph move lower when that happens and the stuff sits in your extremities until you rehydrate
DRINK THE WATER ALL THE TIME EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO STRAP IT ON WHILE WALKING

A couple of things you might try would be to clench and unclench your firsts ever few seconds to see if you can keep the blood flowing. Also, you can try putting your hands on the top of your head to keep the blood from pooling.

Are you walking very hard with your arms swinging or is this happening on more of a stroll? If this is a low effort walk, I would talk to your doctor about the issue as blood circulation issues are not something you want to ignore.

I have an issue that I would appreciate any advice I can get.

During the summer when I walk my hands swell....
I try to wlk 45mins to an hour each time I walk.
About 10 -15mins in my hands start to swell...by the time the walk is done my fingers are so swollen it's difficult to make a fist. When I return to my car and drink water the tightness slowly releases and in about 10 mins or so te swelling is gone.

Is there anything I can do or not do to prevent this from happening?
