Pins and needles in hands??

Does anyone get pins and needles in the hands after running a few miles? Is it just me??

Occasionally, but I find it is because either I have got the alarm strap on my arm to tight, or if I have rolled up my sleeves when I get too hot, although I do sometimes get it for no reason. I assume it's just the circulation in your arms isn't working so well, so I give them a shake and they are ok!

I find if its really cold out they go a little numb or if i hold them up too long in the same position but like Sarah a shake or clenching and reopening my fist soon gets some blood pumping..

Just a thought but have you ever had any neck problems? It sounds like pressure on a nerve there. Could be worth seeing a Chiropractor or some massage at least.

Thanks for that Ernie. Have had a few back problems and do get a tense neck after football or cycling for long periods or intense sessions. I tend to hold up the arms and get the blood flowing again.....

I get pins and needles all the time, particularly in my pinky finger of my right hand. Sometimes it spreads over to all my fingers but it is all down to a bad right shoulder! I don't tend to have specific problems when I run though, not unless it has been bothering me before hand.

Make sure you relax your shoulders when you run as if they are tense for me it makes it worse.
