Interesting... I'll have to look into those.

Hey Karen. On December 21st last year, HMATTAX (Heather) posted this information about warming gloves:


The USB gloves are here: http://usb.brando.com/prod_detail.php?prod
_id=00037 and are $22 plus shipping.

I REALLY like them--got them as a Christmas present a few years ago along with some USB heated slippers (which were only okay).

They are short fingered gloves that have a mitten flap that you can fold over or keep out of the way depending on if you are only mousing around, or if you need to type. Either way they are comfortable. (And have high and low heat options) One warning: do not plug them into a USB splitter as it will fry your computer. Use one USB slot per glove/mouse/whatever else.

(By the way, I was not paid to say any of this, but boy do I love my handwarmers!)

give them a try, i know in the winter i spend a fortune on the thermacare stuff because the heat helps with the stiffness, if they work let us know and i'll get some for myself.

Seattle - I've never tried the gloves, but they might just be a great symptom reliever! I would love to have some in the dead of winter when its cold. The cold hurts my hands so much it makes me cry.

I'm wondering if anyone has heard of warming gloves?? Before my diagnoseis, I had used some. Some I got locally and some others online. They helped but not as much as I would like. I saw this website called http://www.amazon.com/Imak-Arthritis-Glove

I guess this is the review page, but I thnk they might be worth a try. Most all the reviews gave 5 stars and one man even said that they were too warm for him! Wow, if that was the case, I'd put something inside to calm it down!! I suffer so much with pain in my hands and wrists after doing something tough on them, like weeding a liitle bit, cutting up fruit yesterday, etc. I'm hoping that my Rheumy on the 22nd can help out more with my pain, but if I have to go on something alot stronger and more scary, then I could just wear gloves all the time except for when they'd get wet, etc. Before I would order them, I just thought I'd check here first because so much of the time, we're all in the same boat!
