Just wondering....have compression gloves helped ease your pain, swelling and stiffness? I have been considering buying a pair. Any recommendations as to which brands or styles are better?
Thanks.

Yes I got a pair a few years ago and they are great although I did find I couldn't pick up things so I cut open the fingers on one hand this made it easier to do things while wearing them and I only lost a bit of compression

I did purchase a pair of compression gloves. I got Thermoskin. They cover my wrists which were really sore, and they have the fingertips cut off so it is easier to pick up things. I wear them all night and my fingers and wrists are not as sore/stiff/swollen in the morning. They cost around $30 and I love them! Now I have to work on something for my toes!
