Stiff Little Fingers

Today, I found out that the stiffness I've been feeling in my hand is arthritis and that it's only going to get worse. Not only do I type for my job, I'm also 22. FML

I have had arthritis for a long time - I sympathize.

See a rheumatologist - They will probably prescribe Celebrex which is expensive if you live in the USA. As far as I know there is nothing that works near as well that’s cheaper. It’s now available generic but still pricy in the USA.

Over the counter Voltaren cream could help.

The following supplements help:
Cosamine DS
Turmeric

Topical CBD cream helps.

Soaking your hands in very warm tap water can give a little relief too.

I am sorry, everything but the warm tap water is relatively pricey - Arthritis is not a cheap ailment.

Typing is going to become obsolete pretty soon, so it's kind of a good thing you have something pushing you to do something else.

You should take up soccer. Bad hands are actually a plus and you don't have to do much.
