I just wanted to let anyone who has arthritis in the hands or swelling or pain in these joints how much I love my new compression gloves. There are many types out there and I opted for the Isotoner brand that have the seams on the outside. They have really helped the pain in my knuckles and have allowed the pain meds to give me more relief. I have found if I wear them at night I get numb fingers so I don't. I usually have the most pain after dressing or after cooking. The pulling/pushing/lifting is what causes my fingers to ache. I have swelling in a couple fingers too and they have really made that better. Just wanted to let anyone who is thinking about it how much I like mine.
