I have been having numbness/tingling problems in my hands for while now. Slowly getting worse, still in my hands just keeps lasting longer and longer. Now, whenever I exercise, the numbness and tingling gets to be unbearable. All I do is a simple walking workout (low back problems keep me from doing much else) but after a few minutes of repetitively swinging my arms, my hands go numb in a bad way.
I am still waiting to get an appt with a neurologist for a nerve conduction test and some other tests. My family practice doc isn't too sure it is carpal tunnel and is thinking it may be a problem somewhere up further my arm or neck.
I am wondering if it would be ok for me to keep working out through the numbness or if that could possibly make things worse.
Does anyone else have this problem with the numbess and tingling getting worse with extremely minimal exercise?
