Nerve Tension

I'm entering the time of year now where nerve and muscle tightness, particularly in the head to hand area, really becomes a problem. During this time of year I frequently experience pretty major problems at social events, particularly concerts that require prolonged sitting without movement in tight confines. I have over the past few years also had serious difficulties at Super Bowl parties held by a friend of mine.

Does anyone have tips for overcoming these issues so that I can go through the next few months with less worry over disastrous outcomes? I already put myself through a pretty extensive stretching routine, but that has never been sufficient come winter.

Andy - would warm water help? If so, perhaps a warm bath prior to the event may provide some relief. Heat patches may also help in some capacity.

That's really not a bad thing to try. We have a tub upstairs that has jets and all. I just haven't done it because I don't tend to take baths. That shouldn't stop me from trying though.
