I have RA and was recently diagnosed w/Tenosynovitis. Will treatment be different b/c of the RA? I'm also a bartender. Not moving it is not an option.

I have RA and was recently diagnosed w/Tenosynovitis. Will treatment be different b/c of the RA? I'm also a bartender. Not moving it is not an option.

See details: It depends whether the tenosynovitis is secondary to the RA or if it is an unrelated problem. If it is secondary then meds should be adjusted to provide better control. A small local problem often resolves with a cortisone injection. You can really help your long term outlook by stopping smoking. Tobacco use makes the RA much worse. ...Read more

I have had stenosing tenosynovitis of the middle finger on both hands for more than two years. Any chance splinting could help?, and which is best?
