Is tingling in fingers and slight muscle pain due to exercise ?

I am a 43yr old male trying to lose a few excess pounds and improve my fitness, having recently purchased a treadmill.I am currently doing 2 x 2o minute sessions daily, heart rate starts at about 80 and rises to 140ish at end of session. I am experiencing slight tingling in my fingertips on both hands towards the end of each session, which soon disappears once the session has ended...should I be concerned as I am wanting to increase duration of sessions? I am also experiencing constant pain in my left elbow on the outer edge in the muscle, there have been no previous injury and no history of heart issues within my family..any ideas? I work within an office environment. 185 cm in height and 117 kilo s, no chest pain or diabetes , cholesterol when last checked was about 4

Hi Paul, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.

I Would like to know few more things from so that I suggest you better:

1.) What is your Height and Weight?
2.) Are you Diabetic or Hypertensive?
3.) Do you get chest pain on exertion?

You should be getting a Master Health check up done which would include,

1.) Blood Work up
2.) Urinalysis
3.) Serum Electrolytes
4.) EKG
5.) Physician Consultation

to see if everything is alright with you. Tingling sensation suggests a Nerve compression or reduced blood supply. Both these has to be ruled out.

Kindly do not delay and do not increase your Exercise sessions without consulting your Doctor.

Follow these lifestyle modifications:

1.) Avoid stress, practice relaxation techniques like Yoga and Meditation
2.) Not just treadmill, do regular cardio exercises and brisk walks for 30 to 40 minutes daily, 5 days a week
3.) eat healthy nutritious balanced diet which should include fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables
4.) Avoid smoking and alcoholism
5.) Avoid high calorie foods and saturated fats.

Wish you Good Health.

Take Care.
