Pain in my hands

Jul 16, 2017 1:47 AM

I have had a ton of pain in my hands lately! They are so sore these days! I find myself rubbing them constantly trying to relieve the pain! It drives me crazy!

I used to always use hot packs, but I eventually just bought a clay hot/cold pack. It heats in the microwave and offers a lot of relief.

What sort of pain is it, like burning or stabbing?

Do you have neuropathy?

I am not to sure my hands ache and some times feel like pins and needles and have a dull ache and sometimes sharp pains!

I have had Fibro for many,many years as well as osteoarthritis! As well as other things associated with Fibro.

I bought a pair of compression gloves at Walgreens last year and I LOVE them! My hands definitely last a lot longer when I wear the gloves. I usually only wear them when I'm doing needlework or typing or artwork - things with a lot of repetition. However, when the pain is especially bad I also sleep in them. It helps a ton. They were pretty cheap, too - especially for the amount of relief they provide.

@fatiguedFighter Are they really tight and uncomfortable or are they quite comfy?

They are snug, but not tight. They don't have finger tips, so they're not full gloves. I think they're quite comfy! I love mine. They make a big difference. I found I was always rubbing my hands, or sitting on them, or sliding them under my legs as I tried to fall asleep. All of those activities are replaced by the gloves.

Ooo they sound great I might have to get some I get a lot of pain in my hands!

I have to agree about the gloves they have definitely helped me a lot as well. When I get the pins and needles sensation ice helps. And for the soreness I also use heat and it helps a lot
