Well it has gotten worse and I have them all. I can no longer do anthing with my hands...could this be arthritis, fibro, or both? I just ordered some compression gloves to try... what do you do for yours?
Compression gloves have definitely helped me! I can actually do a lot with them on and the pain subsides to a dullness I can work with. Everyone’s pain level is different though so my dull may not be your level of dull. Hope they alleviate your pain!
My thumb and right hand but especially thump and first finger and left hand/wrist...aching, swelling. Doctor thinks it's arthritis and the fibro. I wear a hard brace during the day but kind of hard to use my hands. I wear a soft one st night especially if it is swollen. Also use an ice wrap that goes around hand and wrist. Compression gloves if I need and can do work around the house.
Ive had bilateral carpal tunnels surgeries in 2018. Mine kept me up at nite and was dropping things, hard to drive had to switch hands all time. I do compression gloves even now at nite especially in winter. The pain is back in left but that one was the worst and i have problem w left shoulder and neck constant pain. The surgery isn't bad at all but pain is back on left side?! You should proly see dr.
I use wrist compression supports but going to try splints as the compression bands, altough support my wrist, will also cause pain in my whole thumbe area. I find resting it helps a lot
