    Hello Clive my MND all down left side. I have good arm clamp on left hand I put on at night in bed only. It does stop gripping. Unfortunately right hand now painful as had Bennett fracture right thumb in 1976 playing rugby and other finger knuckles bit sore probably taking on the Peaky Blinders. I put Voltarol on three times a day and that helps.
    Best wishes JOHN

      I have problems with cold hands too-dreading the winter. I've bought some heated electric mitts - the type that my manicureist used to use to remove gel polish. I used to be a high maintenance kinda girl! I'm going to try some extra large men's woolly mittens from Amazon, hopefully I'll be able to get those on.
      My fingers have become stiff and feel as though they're starting to stick together.The back of my left hand is swollen too and tender around the knuckles. I have some splints but they only help temporarily. The physio suggested using Playdoh and hot and cold water but not all together!
      Keep using them as much as you can.

        Hi Newbie;

        Where did you buy the heated electric mitts and how much are they?

        Can you post a link so that we can see what they are like?

        I am a high maintenance kinda Cat.

        Love Terry

          Hi Newbie,
          Like Terry, I'd love some too. Sitting in the house with the heating and the fire on and my hands are still freezing!
          Thanks,
          Bern x

            I got them from Amazon UK, Hive Electric heated mitts-£33.40.
            I hope they help.
            Not sure if they will fit your paws though Terry!

                When I used to play golf I wore thermal mittens in the winter and they are large enough to slip on over gloves. I still have them and find they are great when I am out on my scooter.

                I’m going to do this even if it kills me!

                  Hi. i have the same problem with my middle finger right hand. my mnd is just in my right arm, shoulder and hand at the moment. biggest problem for me was poking myself in the eye trying to wash my face . I do get a small amount of pain when i straighten it but its not bad. i have just brought a finger splint that works really well and seems to keep my finger straight for a while when i remove it.

                  check out: https://www.neo-g.co.uk/products/336...-finger-splint

                  they come in different sizes so measure your finger first.

                    Hi Snowman and welcome to the forum;

                    Try to keep the joints moving on that finger a few times every day, it might help with the discomfort.

                    Thanks for the tip on the finger splint.

                    Best wishes, Terry

                      I use the split in the day time at work. Then i take it off at night and try to do some finger movements.

                        Just looking for hand glove things and I came across this, http://www.healthandcare.co.uk/urias...nd-splint.html

                        Whilst I appreciate that most of us could not blow them up, they might be able to reduce swelling and other things, especially if you could join them up to a pump that alternates and has a very low pressure.
