Full finger arthritis gloves

Common Questions and Answers about Full finger arthritis gloves

finger

About 14 months ago one of my fingers was hyper extended when I tried to catch a softball and my ring finger was bent very far back. My finger healed for the most part, I have a full range of motion and no pain at all except when I press hard on the finger. None of my other fingers hurt when I press on them and this one only hurts when I press hard on it but it does hurt quite a bit when I press on it. Yesterday I asked the doctor about this and he prescribed Naproxen.
I started with confusion. I lost the gloves i knitted. Then, 1 week later I lost my winter jacket. I was arguing with my husband about something and said the word "Christmas" instead of the word I meant to say, which had nothing to do with "Christmas". I was shocked by it. My 10 year old comment on it. I have found trouble finding the right words (not usually an issue for me regularly ;)....so I stumble slightly. I get frustrated with this. I have become very flightly.
I have Raynauds and I have Rheumatoid arthritis, Gloves can't warm up cold hands unless you warm them first. My Rheumatologist sends me in to hospital every October or November to have isloprost infusions ( 5 Days for 5hours) iwhich help me a lot. So see a rhuematologist is my advice. |I tried pills but they gave me very swollen ankles. and did not really help me. Also I carry fisherman's hand warmers wherever I go and you can get these for your feet too.
I had it once so severely that I went to the emergency room where they gave me meds to open my arteries. My index finger was so swollen that if I waited a day or two longer it would have gone gangreen. I've been to vascular surgeons, cardiologists. hand surgeons and regular md's and no one can help me. This just happened again to my thumb after 10 years and my cardiologist prescribed high blood pressure meds...and I DON'T have high blood pressure, I've been running for 25 years!
My hands itch so bad scratching with my nails and interlocking my finger of both hands and rubbing causes a relief while doing this that reaches a level of cessation. Then 5 minutes later it returns with more intensity. This continues for close to an hour sometimes. By this time my hands are burnng hot and swollen to more than twice their size lasting into the next day. Very hot water helps. You'll know how hot. Then a freezer bag filled with ice. Thats all I can help with.

A Always nice to see you. You were definitely not dreaming, lol There are gloves that are used by SCI patients too, and some good websites with those items. I know for my brother in law, keeping the fingers out like that w/the glove is painful. But, may be less pain for an MSer. And, there is also botox. Will see if I have any book marks on those accessories, and hopefully some other will see this too and offer those items they've experience with, or know about.
Wear light cotton gloves when doing light work with hands at home/work (am doing so now as typing can affect the finger ends), and wear heavy gloves over them when needing to do hard work (gardening, lifting furniture, etc). Do not wear the cotton gloves for too long as they will after 20-30 mins start to dry out the skin. Use a Urea based ‘repair’ cream 4-6 times daily when the condition flares, and 2 times a day when it has abated (after a shower/bath is best absorption time).
they are always around the finger joints and a little tender to run your finger over. I am worried it is the onset of a nodular arthritis as it runs in the family and as a piano teacher would be a great nuisance to say the least!
Started in left hand (pinky and ring finger), progressed to whole hand....... after about five weeks, hand first occurance in right hand. that was my first call to my doctor. This all started about June 2007, Now it is mid august and I cannot sleep one night without having my hands completely numb each night. I wake up to shake and rub them......... they come back and a try to go back to sleep.
A tender, painful bump began to grow on the knuckle nearest the nail on my right hand middle finger, but as I have arthritis anyway I'm quite used to swollen painful knuckles and at first thought nothing of it. But it kept growing, and I kept bumping it against things - ow ow ow, really painful - and about 10 days ago I popped it with a sterilised needle and squeezed. As a very early post reported, it was like a very clear thick syrup, colourless; tasted a bit salty.
I think sL is good telling you can have a good cardio work up, to be certain your ticker is nont this cause. the full work-up can be alot of testing, but you want to tr y and see wher e this may be coming from. It may helep for you to have a holter, since this 'static' should up on the EKG. I am really fortunate to have doctors listen to me even when tests are unfounding/inconclusive. ekg, echo, holter, event monitor, tilt table, all have been neg.
The scientific papers they cite seem, mostly, generic rather than specifically about the Zona Plus itself. Harvard Health Newsletter did do a full-page spread on it. Anyone with experience with this device?
they used to have me put it all over my arms and then wrap them in plastic wrap---and they had me put it on my hands and then wear cotton gloves covered with plastic gloves. they had me do this when i went to bed at night. since then, i have read that you are not supposed to put occlusive bandages over this kind of medication. wonder how much i was absorbing into my system back in those days??!!

mostly my pinky finger, the tip looks chemically burned and my ring finger is also totally numb. The numbness travels up my hand into my wrist and a little further up. I've also noticed my eye sight isn't what it used to be. But like I said I have no regrets of tx. and I am going to do a tx again! I wish you the best in yrs to come of a complete heathly life. I was told by my pschologist that the sx should go away in 2 yrs or so. He has been doing extensive studies on the lasting effects of tx.
The excision of the scaphoid is said to be the only solution with partial fution of the wrist since I have alredy developed arthritis on the concerned wrist. My current situation is the following: almost no extention or flexion on the wrist; all other movements intact. If I keep the hand continuously in a splint i'll have no pain, but if i take it out i'll have pain in a very short time, doing even minor tasks. Since I am quite young (29yrs) I am wondering what should I do.
I live in Colorado and I find that if I walk out to start my car (when it is cold out) without gloves on my hands burn, my finger turn purple when they are cold. A doctor told me I have reynauds, which could be the case, but I was curious about the posts above about diet. I have been a vegetarian for 23 years. My diet is all veggies, carbs and dairy. I am studying to be a nurse and my biggest fear is my patients being freaked out by my ugly, red, (or purple) fingers! keep talking...
Put on warm socks and gloves in the winter, keep your feet and fingers warm by any means, and otherwise forget about Raynauds, it's a very minor issue. Forget about Rheumatoid factor as well, it comes with type 2 cryo, which you probably have, and more then likely will always remain pos, even if you SVR. Too long to go in to the dynamics of it, but believe me, it's nothing you can do about it.
The last thing i want to do is spread them to other parts of my body as they r so contagious, so i shower with disposable gloves on and don't take the gloves off until i am dressed and have treated my foot. I then take off the gloves and scrub my hands with a moisture soap, dry them & treat them as well.
Now I have a beautiful neck, just like when I was a teenager with a scar that is so minimal, it blends into my crease (I am 56 years old).
if you're having redness and this sore, and you're wearing anything with latex/spandex or your partner uses latex condoms, it might be the cause. I worked in the medical field and wore latex gloves all day, every day and now I'm super sensitive. If I'm exposed to latex, I get open sores and my skin swells and splits and if I miss fabric content lists and there's latex (like around the top of support hose or stockings), I'll get redness and irritation. Might want to check that.
I am very open about having been in tx for hepc, I guess because I feel it's from contact with my late husband rather than from drug use, altho I did do some of that (very little) in the early 80s, but since I had no liver damage etc and I did share his toothbrush and cared for him without gloves at the end it made more sense that it was from blood contact with him. Either way I believe the public is coming to be more compassionate about this illness than it used to be.
sensation occur on my right hand between my ring finger and middle finger. The cool wetness sensation started about a week and a half ago. I had attributed it to lack of sleep (I have sleep apnea and tend to wake myself up at night, ergo lack of REAL sleep). At any rate I appreciate the fact that everyone here has been sharing their experiences because I thought I was flipping out or something (well, kinda). It typically happens when I'm NOT thinking about it...
when i work at the mall I always go to starbucks and get a VENTI glass full of ice and when i'm working at the nursing home i keep my water bottle full of ice. it's ridiculous. I have this face wash taht when i am washing my face it smells sooo good i want to eat it and it scares me half to death. But the doctor says it's just because i'm low on iron.
My favorite is if you touch the left side of my face-especially if you lightly run a finger over my cheek-it'll paralyze the entire left side, even down the side of my neck. I'll cringe, and the ringing in my left ear goes CRAZY(!) Also, and I have no idea if it's part of the Chiari or not, but if I grip something (like the other day when I was chipping ice), I can NOT open my fingers back up. I physically have to get someone else to open them for me. Weird? Or "common"?
I have an MD appointment tomorrow, 10/31/08, and will share any diagnosis I receive. My left big toe is in on the action now as is the middle finger tip of my left hand. No pain, just annoying as prior posts mention.
