Dehydration: Dehydration is one cause. Hydrate before, during and after the workout. If it persists, consider a cardiac evaluation.

Ulnar neuropathy: You have likely heard of carpal tunnel syndrome. This is a compression and irritation of the median nerve in the wrist. Ulnar tunnel syndrome, which it sounds like you may have, is a compression of the ulnar nerve in elbow. This nerve supplies the ring finger and pinky fingers. If it is compressed and irritated it can produce tingling and pain in those fingers. It is more common in pregnancy.

Feet maybe, hands no: The sciatic nerve runs from the gluteal region (your rear end) down the back of your leg, then branches to innervate the back of the thigh and leg as well as the outer part of the lower leg and then parts of the feet. An injury may cause those symptoms there, as well as problems with motion. The major nerves that serve the hands are the radial, ulnar and median.

A few possibilities: Depression is possible, hypothyroidism also and even autoimmune disorders like fibromyalgia. All can lead to fatigue, low libido, tiredness, foggy brain and low energy and motivation. Cold hands and feet are more likely along with fogginess to suggest medical problems. This is only a short list. A thorough medical and possibly psychiatric evaluation are in order.

Bad lower leg pain when walking. How can you tell if it is a nerve or circulation problem?

Time to relief: Most vascular problems cramp with duration of walking and respond over 2-5 minutes to rest. "neurogenic claudication" or pinched nerves from back arthritis come on more slowly, take longer to respond (try sitting) and feel better if you lean on a shopping cart, etc. Nerve pain from disc usually worse with sitting, and better standing up. However, these are not hard rules. Get it looked at!
