Tingling Hands and Arms
Question: I have found that often, once I have been running for more than 15 minutes, I experience a tingling sensation in both hands and arms. Altering posture can sometimes help. Is this a common complaint?
Dear Lin, It’s possible that you symptoms are originating from your lower neck and upper back, as stiffness in this area can irritate the nerves which supply your upper limbs. This is relatively easy to treat and a chartered physiotherapist should be able to help you out. Alternatively they may be related to your circulation. If you speak to your local GP he should be able to check you over and refer you to a physiotherapist. Kind regards Angela Benjamin MSc MCSP Chartered Physiotherapist
