I have very active ra in my fingers. I type or write for 8 hours a day. So far the medications are not working very well. While I am typing my hands freezes up and I can’t move them. Then I take a break and have to run warm water over them to get them to start moving again. I might have to do this three or four times while I am at worrk. I s there any other thing that I can do besides the warm water and alot of breaks?
You didn’t mention the medications you are on. Look through this website. You will see that there are many options for the treatment for RA, including two recently approved drugs– Orencia and Rituxan. Talk with your rheumatologist to see if these or other medications might be appropriate for you.
