Yes, def happens to me sometimes. Always during cardio and if its hot. I read something about it being caused by your vasodilation or maybe retaining some fluids. I think it is pretty common.

There are two possible reasons for that:
1. When you exercise, you’re getting more blood flow to your extremities, like the “pump” that people talk about with their muscles.
2. If you’re walking outside (it looks like you are!) the heat may be causing you to swell. I live in South Florida, and I can tell you for sure that if I spend a lot of time outside, my ring (which I wear a half size too big) actually will get tight.
It doesn’t look too extreme to me, so I really wouldn’t be concerned, those are my thoughts, though!

Yes! My hands always get puffy when I do cardio. Anything where my heart rate is extremely elevated really.

LAX03: lizzieb: partyplanner83: Thanks ladies and while it does get tight and I cant get it off with out soap or water when right after work outs, It is stiff and not rotating but not cutting off circulation or anything like that. I just wondered if it was normal. I am in fact outside, but when Im just out there not excersising I dont swell anything like this. However I do swell really bad while sleeping?

Yes! I notice it more around my ankles/feet but this happens to me occasionally

Totalkaos1983: Happens to me all the time – but mostly in the summer when it’s really humid/hot out. My hands will swell up (happens to my sister and my mother too) and get super itchy. The only thing that helps is going back in AC and/or putting them in freezing cold water. I don’t think you have anything to worry about – just make sure you drink a lot of water!

Totalkaos1983: When I used to walk (I now use our recumbent bike due to foot pain) I used to swell up big time in my fingers. I noticed this especially when I’d walk outside for some reason. Even when it’s a hot day out, I swell! So much so that it is painful to wear rings. I don’t think it’s a major issue though I’m sure it couldn’t hurt to ask a doc, as my swelling usually goes down a bit once I cool down. I’ve just learned I can’t wear rings while exercising or dressed up on hot days at the Rennaissance Faire!

My hands always get puffy when I exercise or walk outside when it’s hot. I just don’t wear my rings when I know I will be exercising or walking a ton.

Totalkaos1983: yep for sure! I’m a runner and I pretty much never take my rings off. After long (10+ miles) runs the things are basically stuck on my hands for an hour. I don’t think it’s anything to worry about though : )

Mrs_Amanda: weatherbug: Ninebones: lolot: thank you ladies. At least I know it’s common, normal and o.k.. Do any of you take your rings off for certain things? If so what things or activities do you remove them for and why?

My hands swell up when I play volleyball and baseball.

lolot: 10+ miles?! I’d be dead! You’re hardcore!

Completely normal. If I go for a long walk and it’s warm out, my fingers definitely swell. It goes down quickly though once I am lounging around indoors, so it’s not concerning.

I definitely swell when I work out- especially hiking and running. I think it’d be weird if you didn’t!
