Has any one tried gloves made for people with RA or Raynauds? I have been looking at them on line for a while, but hate to order them and then they don't work. I wouldn't mind spending the money if I knew they would work . I know most people are straped for money , but I am hopeing someone has tried them and likes them.

" I never bought an y expensive ones, but my isotoners really helped put a little compression on my hands. I also occasionally used some cheap little knitted gloves (walmart, target type for $3) that gave a little compression. I think it's the compression that helps. "

" I have used some of the inexpensive gloves as well. I think they do help a bit, not a lot, but sometimes you must just take what you can get. "

" I'm about to buy my third pair of these:

I'm not sure if they help the swelling much. My hands are always cold, which makes them hurt more, and these help with that. I think they're also a distraction, the compressed feeling distracts a little from the pain feeling. I rarely go without wearing them at home, even in the summer. "

" I have these:
I keep a pair in my school bag and a pair in my desk at home. I think they are the same ones episteme recc. This is the best price I have found them for ($28 for two pair)

I used to cut the fingertips off of the $1 gloves from Walmart/Target, but they were too warm in summer months . . .
They aren't a sure fire fix, but they help. "

" My hands have been KILLING me lately, and I've been looking for options as to what to do. Those gloves look like they might be helpful, because while I've love a pair of the heated gloves (heat would feel lovely on my hurting knuckles), I wouldn't be able to type at work with those big bulky things on, and the arthritis gloves I could wear pretty much all the time, but they'd provide support and maybe relieve a bit of the pain. I may try that. I'm going to save the link and maybe buy a pair when I get paid Friday. Thanks for the tip! "

" I just bought a pair (or, rather, a box with 2 pairs). When they get delivered, I'll let people know how they work and if they help my hand pain. "

" I bought a pair at a place called Advanced Medical Supplies. When I have swelling and pain I wear them and they really do help. They hold in the heat and have light compression. I highly recommend them! "

" In the craft section at Walmart they have "crafters" fingerless gloves, reasonable price & easy to wear for everyday. "
