Puffy Hands

Posted by dexx215 (My Page) on

For the last month or so my hands are puffy. When I lean on my arms or when I'm sleeping I get pins and needles. My feet are not affected. I drink lots of water and not much salt (I think), so does anybody have an idea? Thanks.

Do you have trouble with your neck or upper back?

RE: Puffy Hands

No, no trouble with neck or upper back. Was looking on the internet and up comes thyroid problems, so maybe that's what I have. Dr. appt. coming up next month, so will check with her. Thanks.

RE: Puffy Hands

Mine get puffy from edema - I have high blood pressure and have to take a diuretic to control water retension.
