These are the compression gloves I have - they have copper in them too. They're like pulling on a pair of Spanx, but do give quite a lot of support and I can pretend I'm Michael Jackson
Hi Cwendyn mine are a godsend as well and bring down the pain and swelling in my hands a lot
Do you think they would help with a cluster of painful small lumps on the back of my hand, which are giving me hell at the minute. Can't remember what my rheumy said they were. The only thing I can google up that resembles them are called ganglions, but I don't think she called them that, more like something beginning with 'cyst.....?
Does anyone knows what they are?
Don't know. Ask your GP perhaps?
I have just been to my go as I am getting these lumpy cysts underneath my lower arms along the bones. I am having them removed at some point. The doc did mention that sometimes methotrexate Has something to do with it. Mine are not painful but troublesome. Hope that helps.
I'm not on methotrexate. These things are not painful all of the time but when they flare, which is pretty often, the stinging type pain is troublesome when I try to grip anything. They may well be cysts, I just didn't quite catch what my rheumy said they were. It's no big deal anyway, I'll ask her when I next see her in October.
Thanks sheels and Good luck having those cysts removed.
Thank you for your reply. I don’t think the Rheumy docs know 100% what or why cysts appear. Good luck with your cysts too. X
That doesn't surprise me. There's a load of RA stuff you presume they know about until you ask about something specific, and 'we're not really sure' is often the reply.
Very stylish, Cwendyn and if they help you that's brilliant
I do the odd talk every now and again and wore one of these the last time. It was a talking point!
I have no clue what compression 'globes' are - oops! Sorry for the typo
Haha me neither, but whatever they are they do sound like a serious piece of kit.
