    is*toner gloves were recommende to me by two friends and l bought a pair (about 30) and l have not regretted it.

    Having said that l do beleive you could ask the GP to refer you to teh OT l think for assessment and you might just get some free :wink:

    Might be you need ones with splints in for instance?

    Love

    Hi Mig,

    I love my gloves. They help a lot with the swelling on bad days. I got given a pair by my OT, which saved a few pennies.

    I used to wear mine at night and my hands weren't so swollen in the morning. I'd highly recommend night-time glove wear.

    All the best. :)

    I've bought some off Amazon as well, based on recommendation here!

    Odd that they feel cold and warm at the same time. I've had some similar in the past that were thinner but didn't seem to support as much as these.

    Hi, I've seen them advertised and wondered if they might help. I'll get myself a pair. My hands are really painful and bother me as much as anything at the moment, with strange lumps growing!!! :mrgreen: Love Sue

    I've only had them a day but what a difference! My knuckles aren't aching and cracking any more!

    I tried wearing them overnight, as I think that my hands and wrists often end up in 'screwed up' positions and are stiff in the morning but I couldn't sleep with them, will try it again in a couple of days.

    I now need a sock version for my sore arthritic feet...

    Have now been wearing the gloves thru the night for about week and wear them most of the day,hands are hardly stiff in the morning so i can get going a bit earlier than usual (must remember to put rubber gloves on for washing dishes,forgot once).Amazon seem to be the cheapest i have seen for the large size.Could do with something like them for feet .
    Yep a whole body suit would be great but not practical.Mig
