Tingling in right hand while exercising

I walk briskly about 1.5 miles on a treadmill a couple of times a week. After walking for a few minutes, my right hand begins to go numb. It does not do this at any other time, and my hand returns to normal a few minutes after I stop walking. Any idea what is causing this temporary numbness?

Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question and a great question it is....I had to do some research but I found this website from the National Institute of Health that provides some explanation for possible tingling while walking. You can read more about your question here http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003206.htm.

Have you ever had any injury to your back or neck? Have you had your back and neck checked for any allignment issues? These are just some things I would go to your treating physician about if I were in your position. The tingling sensation is not normal so perhaps a check-up should solve your problem.


Can you keep us posted? I would be interested in what your physician tells you. Good luck.
