Now I'm on a short knitting break pending seeing the ortho doc on Friday about my hands, forearms, wrists & fingers cramping, hurting swelling pain!! It hurts so much to knit....but I keep on going I've been on short I mean real short knititng breaks a couple hours here or there, but I still knit. Its so hard to completely stop. I'm sure some of you out there can relate to that. Anyways during my research I found these three types but can't decide on which I should get. I can find them cheaper somewhere else online I'm sure from what I hear but doing a quick search here they are.. need opinions on which would be best and most helpful so I can continue to knit, spin & type....I stopped the cortisone injections for tendonitis (elbows), sick of the steriods in the long term it makes it worse anywway and the complication of side effects. I have found a comfortable position of keeping my arms very close to my body and have my elbows rest slightly on a pillow besides me while knitting.. Whatever works right!
Lots of knitty people have recommend these to me from knitty boards now which ones should I look into more.. Ohhhhh Can't decide!! Can't even find them here at the drug store Wal-Mart any other places I maybe able to find some??
