well the answer i got twice was that its when you hold your fingers down pointing to the ground its the blood rushing to them so you should point you fingers up when exercising...and my aunt said she thinks the heat may have something to do with it as well

I heard somewhere that swelling in your fingers while walking means that you are dehyrated. Mine do the same thing too, and I don't think I'm always dehydrated, so who knows!

That happens to me sometimes too. I'm sure it has something to do with hydration and/or heart rate/ thermogenics. Doesn't our skin swell when we are hotter? I'm thinking that's it. My ring always fits looser when i am cold, and tighter when i'm hot and sweaty.

Here is an article about the cause/prevention from Wendy Bumgardner a veteran walker/trainer:
http://walking.about.com/cs/med/a/swollenhands.htm

I would recommend to check her walking about site/forum - it is one of the best in this subject.
