Pinky and ring finger joints hurt when writing/typing
after about 15 minutes of writing or typing the joints in the right side of my right hand (my writing hand) begin to really hurt and it becomes hard to write or really do anything. It's not the same as the normal cramp you will get in your hand from writing too much because this usually happens pretty quickly and it's only in the joints for about an hour and then I'll start getting cramps in that hand (down the pinky finger to the wrist). The doctor told me last year that I possibly have Rheumatoid arthritis, but further test have to be done.
I'm 18, a female, and going to uni in less than a month, and I don't know what to do to get this pain to stop. Any suggestions? I was looking into those gloves you can buy to ease the pain of arthritis in your hands, but I don't even know if it is arthritis, and I was kind of hoping for something that would actually fix the pain a bit better?
