Re: Swelling hands
Hi There, Sorry for your pain. Swelling can be very uncomfortable. Basically any exertion can produce the swelling. The ealier you spot it and treat it the better. I have had swelling in various parts of my body all over. The previous post should help during exercise. After exercise I would elevate your legs if you get it in your feet and legs too. My hands swell from doing just about anything so I have a paraffin bath which helps reduce the swelling in my hands and feet. I keep it plugged in and ready all the time. Ice helps with the rest of the body or a chilled bath. I get swelling in what I call my hump (thoracic spine/neck/shoulders) and have to ice it several times a week.
The good news is that it's probably not anything serious, just another annoying symptom. They ultrasounded and x-rayed my hump last year but found nothing. So my doctor chalks it up to the subjective swelling of fibro.
Good luck with your hands.
