I have recently been given a new diagnosis of osteoporosis arthritis in several fingers ion both hands. Thankfully for me it doesn't affect any other joints (so far) so I guess I am lucky. I was wondering what people take for pain relief? my gp says I can't take 1000 mg of naproxen indefinetly as although it eases the pain it doesn't help the my fat fingers and they are still swollen.
I work with a keyboard every day and recently its been really hard by the end of the day as the pain is quite bad. My Gp says physio might help but any suggestions welcome from those who have tried different methods.
Reading some posts has made me feel quite lucky as mine is local to my hands only.
