This is so frustrating! When ever im at work major hand/ finger swelling! :(

Next time you see your doctor you need to ask him/her about it. Does this only happen at work? Is ot because you're sitting for a long time and not moving a lot or is it too warm in your office. If I'm overheated my fingers will swell something fierce.

Im an aged care nurse so lots of moving around and not much sitting unfortunatly.
It happens at home too but more so when im up moving around

You know something, when I was able to do stuff I found it odd when I went roller skating or something like that my hands would swell badly. Sometimes in the summer when I'd be mucking out my horses stalls, they would swell also. Perhaps it has something to do with heat and activity? I wish I knew what to tell you. You're a wonderful persons being an aged care nurse. It's not ever an easy job but I bet your patients appreciate you.{{{Hugs}}}💕🙏🏻🌻😊

Ive done it for about 13 years and its kind of my sanity too. Heat packs have helped sometimes with tne swelling :)

Are you working under fluorescent lighting? They can affect you like sun and heat if you're battling lupus
