Circulation Problems while Running

Discussion in 'General Fitness' started by [email protected], Dec 19, 2005.

  1. Hi,
    I count myself as a pretty fit, active 34 year old and I've been
    running between 25 and 30 miles a week for the past year or so. I've
    noticed that on prolonged periods of hard running that the circulation
    in my right arm and hand gets considerably worse. It gets to the point
    where my hand gets so cold it goes numb and afterwards takes many hours
    to return to normal.
    My other arm and the rest of my body is fine.
    Anyone had or heard of similar circulation problems that seem
    concentrated to one area of the body?

    Thanks for any help.

    And it will, until the full coronary hits. Get your stuff in order,
    your hours are numbered.

    Just a thought, but it's possible that you may have some extra tension
    in the right arm. Try relaxing and shaking out that arm once in a
    while.

    I've had a bit of that recently.

    At least for me, my hunch is that the biggest factor is that I "mouse"
    with my right hand. Do you use a computer hours each day?

    I'm thinking about trying a keyboard with built-in pointing device
    (touchpad? not sure what's available these days), see if that has any
    effect on my right arm.

    Phil is correct, it's a common "over masturbation" injury in runners.
    Just don't try "shaking it out" while you're holding your penis...

    I have had similar feelings, especially when the weather first turns
    cool in fall and early winter. Mostly I feel this numbness in the 3rd and
    4th fingers and the lower part of my forearms from the elbows down - I
    attribute it to numbness of the ulnar nerve. Mittens don't help. However,
    it's never painful or very persistent - after I stop running and warm my
    body up it goes away.
    I've figured it's related to some muscles in my arm or shoulder that
    don't relax as much in the cold, and therefore pinch some sensation in my
    arms. But I have no proof of that. Wearing a vest may help to keep those
    muscles warm without much sweating.

    Go to a chiropractor, and STFU. Dumbass
