Has anyone tried arthritis compression gloves for their EDS? I have a decent amount of pain in my hands and fingers and I wanted to see if it would be worth it to try these. If they work it would be cheaper than ring splints.

      I use KT tape b/c they don’t always bother me. Compression gloves hurt way too much and caused swelling

      I like to wear arthritis gloves while I sleep and compression gloves while I’m awake. Arthritis gloves are very sturdy and will basically hold all your fingers in place while you sleep. I have small hands, and it was a challenge to find the right compression gloves, but I finally found them and I love them, bonus: they have the little grippers! If my arthritis gloves had little grippers, I’d be on cloud nine!

      They are great for me, but not compressing enough on my wrists

      I actually have! I can say they gave some some pain relief, but not a ton. It helped more with my knuckles then my actual finger joints, just because compression isn't the same as actually supporting the joint itself
