Super Bad Flare-up

Friday night, after I worked on my glacier pothos painting, I noticed that my arthritis was becoming noticeably worse by the hour. The weather was pretty bad and we live on the 9th floor so I’m sure the already declining barometric pressure was the cause of my sudden flare-up. (I recently installed barometric pressure apps on my phone and iPad Pro. I look at them every night and morning now.)

Pretty much all of my joints were hurting. The worst ones were my wrists and knees, followed closely by my ankles. My joints just felt so rickety and creaky and painful. It was so bad that even my ears popped. So because I was miserable the whole weekend (I avoided taking painkillers), I decided to order three pairs of compression gloves from Amazon Japan. I ordered Sunday and just got them all in the mail this evening. I tried them on and I absolutely love’em. Obviously this is not going to cure my arthritis, but I know it’s going to help. Even just a little bit. And that’s enough for me.


1. Compression Arthritis Gloves (pictured); 2. Dr. Arthritis Copper-infused Compression Gloves #1; 3. Dr. Arthritis Compression Gloves #2. I got them all in size Small and they fit great. I got three so I can rotate two for work, and wear one for sleeping.
