Good mornin' everyone. For those of you who have consistently sore and swollen wrists, have you ever tried splinting them? My rheumy suggested I splint my wrists at night because you can irritate them by inadvertently sleeping on them. It seems to help a bit, but my wrists are getting progressively worse despite the night splinting. They were so sore this morning, I could barely drive--thankfully, I'm telecommuting today so I only had to drive 9 miles to get to the telecommute center instead of the normal 55 miles to my office! I have splints on them right now, and I'll see if it helps any, but I was just wondering if any of you have any other suggestions?
