swollen hand at nighttime
I am not sure if this could be heart related at all, but thought you guys would probably know. I woke up last night with my right hand swollen to the point where I could hardly close it. There was no injury to it and it was not painful - just swollen. I worked with it a few times and eventually went back to sleep. It was fine when I woke up this morning.
Could this be heart related? I do wake up with numb hands fairly often, but it is usually the left one. I have type II diabetes and hypertension, but they are both under control. I am 44 years old.
Today is Friday and I got home after office hours. Otherwise I would have called my cardiologist.
