Hands going numb when walking

Patient

Q: I am a 48 yr old woman. I started walking alot lately. but when I am walking, my hands get numb and feel like they are swollen but they are not, it's just hard to make them into a fist. my feet also hurt but I just figured it was because I am over weight and not used to exercising but today I noticed they get very red. It takes about 10 to fifteen 15mins for the symtoms to go away after I sit down and rest. Why does that happen?
