My fingers swell-up | High Sierra Topix
If you've been searching for the best source of information and stimulating discussion related to Spring/Summer/Fall backpacking, hiking and camping in the Sierra Nevada...look no further!
It makes me feel much better knowing that I'm not the only one and that it's not a sign of something serious.

I get "sausage fingers" too if I'm on a long hike with a heavy pack.
What I usually do is hook my thumbs on my sternum strap for awhile and the swelling goes away.

Mine used to do that too. And they itched! For me, I lost a little weight (15 lbs)and stopped eating meat for other physical reasons (suggested by a cardiologist that I don't have to go to again-whee!) and my hands stopped doing that as a by product. Not sure why, but I'm not complaining! Dee
