I have to let you all know that the warming gloves that I bought aren't warm enough. They were the ones that plug right into the computer. I feel so disappointed about it all! I guess I must have more pain than some other people. I have made my mind up to go on whatever biologic my Rheumy suggests would work the best for me. My next appt. with him is Nov. 19 now. I just can't take this chronic pain much longer! I will hang onto them in case they would come in handy even with being on a biologic because my hands are so cold also besides the pain.

I'm starting my ticker over with going low carb.

I have to tell you all that i did order a pair from the website that is listed below. They plug right into your computer and warm up that way! I'm so excited to have my hands more pain-free when I'm at least at the computer. My hands are always cold too, from carpal tunnel surgery on each hand back in the 80's. I think that that's why anyway. So these gloves will work 2-fold. I haven't gotten them yet, but will let you know what I think when I get them! Needless to say, I'm excited about them! I still need a pair for alot of the rest of the day, when doing laundry, reading, paying bills, shopping, etc. where I could have the last tip of my fingers exposed so I could turn pages, etc. I've seen on another website they're infrared heated gloves with them heating with your own body heat. I'd have to see if anyone here has used them and what they really think. I don't want to buy something that wouldn't really work. It's Heather here on SP that had also ordered the gloves that plug into the computer, so I know that they work good! Whooeeee! With working together, we'll all eventually find what we really need! Good luck to all of us! emoticon emoticon emoticon Oh, and you're so welcome, ASANA26!

I would think you should be able to find something on Amazon or in Bed Bath & Beyond. I may have to do some research on this because it would surely help me out this winter!

Even when it's 60 out, my fingers feel like you can just snap them off like brittle little sticks!

Oooh - I could snap them off and use them for ice cubes in my water! HAHA (Yes, I have a lack of sleep today so I am not making much sense!)

Now I am not sure if I have heard of the warming gloves, I do have some that I heat up in the microwave that I can put on my hands, but would never wear them out of the house. ThermaCare used to have arthritis wraps that were specifically for wrist and hand. They don't make them anymore, of course, since they seemed to work so well. I have not been able to find anything else like them.

Has anyone heard of warming gloves for arthritis? Any that are really warm enough for us with RA so bad in our hands with them being cold and painful? I tried several kinds before relief with meds., and none were quite warm enough. I've thought of getting a flesh colored pair again and just putting those individual hand warmers inside each one. I want a pair that looks nice enough for church, etc. I get so restless from pain and it's hard to relax when sitting in church etc.
