Has anyone tried the finger stalls/supports please?

Hi I am a completely new member and have just joined today, although I have been diagnosed with OA for approximately a year. I know it's very minor, but annoying all the same, I have recently developed a large 'node' that has appeared on the end joint of my smallest left finger and I am no longer able to straighten it. Having searched on line I have seen numerous finger 'stalls'/supports so I was wondering whether anyone has tried any of them and if so, are they any good? Or should I try something else?
I am not taking any medication and would rather hold off on that for as long as possible but my finger is very painful..
Any advice from members would be gratefully received.
Thank you!

    Hi Cindyb

    As Val said if it is people's experiences you want to hear about you will find more succes on the Living with Arthritis forum. Alternatively if you want professional advice it may be a good idea to speak to a good physio who specialises in hands as they would know the best type of support to use for your particular situation.

    Best Wishes

    thank you both very much and apologies for adding this in on a general page - I guess it is my newness! Next time I have a query I will know where exactly to post it.

    Amazing to get such nice speedy replies anyway!
