I was diagnosed almost 1 year ago with sero positive RA. Was very 'lucky' (possibly not right word) that when I was diagnosed my joint damage was very minimal, however even with ALL the drugs have noticed my hands starting to get painful, particularly at night. I asked GP about splints or something - not really sure what - to help keep fingers straight when I sleep as I get some comfort with them being forced to be straight. GP said wouldn't help, that's what drugs are for. Just wondering if anyone has found anything helps I.e. splints?
