arthritis related pain

Is there a kind of device I could use for my very painful 2 fingers on my right hand? I use a mouse constantly and the pain becomes unbearable. I take 15mg loxiflam per day as well as a natural joint supplement. I have tried tying them up with elastoplast and even a splint with no success. not much pain when doing other normal chores.

sounds like the best solution for you would be a functional splint made by an occuptional therapist - they specialise in making splints for hands in the functional position. You should contact such a person in your area and should that not solve your problem you best consult with an orthopedic hand specialist

My daughter 28 is suffering from pain in her finger, ankle and shoulder. She is a graphic designer and uses the mouse all day long. She has been to see a orthopedic suregeon who took xrays and said he could see swelling and nothing else.
sHE is under treatment with a homeopath who has put her on a special diet to rectify the high levels of acid that was present in her body - this has helped her healthoverall but she is still sufering from severe pain. When making a fist with both hands and comparing the two hands'' knuckles the finger in question on her right hand - the ringfinger - looks like the knuckle could be out of place slightly. Please advise -
