Reasons for swollen hands

Swollen hands and fingers can have many causes. So it’s important to discuss your symptoms with your doctor if you’re experiencing this condition.

According to the UK’s National Health Service (NHS), swelling in the arms and hands is caused by fluid buildup and this usually goes away on its own.

Taking certain blood pressure medications, birth control pills, antidepressants, or steroids

The NHS recommends doing the following to reduce swelling:
