SAPF....how is your blood pressure? Have you had it checked lately? How is your fluid intake? ANd when you worked out....for example, walked, where your hands pumped above your heart? The reason I ask, is sometimes this happenes to me...and I do not have high blood pressure. It could be just poor circulation (yes, sometimes the two do go hand and hand). SOmetimes it is because I am workng out and not moving my arm. Just my 2 cents.
My fingers do the same thing, and I don't have high blood pressure. I think it has something to do with gravity - your hands are hanging by your sides, and fluid collects. When it happens to me, my fingers even tingle a bit. If I make sure to keep my arms moving when I walk, my fingers don't swell.

i thought i posted to this but i guess i didnt. i heard that if you keep your hands at or above waist level then it should help with the swelling. i have never had high blood pressure and when i used to walk around the park here i'd have this problem. i dont think i walked long enough to actually try the above the waist thing though.
