    I've tried a few times a mix of how water, Epson salt, and 2 Alka-Seltzer. Mix in a bowl big enough for both hands, and soak them until it's cooled off. It tends to help for a day or two. I also found aon sale a hand massager on line ($50) that tends to help, but I can't always tolerate it for too long and do short cycles a few times a day. Lastly, sometimes an ice-pack can provide me some relief, also for short periods of 5-10 min.
