Sorry to hear you’re having issues with hand mobility from your Raynaud’s, and understand how frustrating that can be.
If the solutions you’ve been trying only offer temporary relief, have you talked with your doctor about medication? There are drugs clinically proven to help alleviate Raynaud’s symptoms in the category of calcium channel blockers. May be worth checking to see if you’re a a candidate for these drugs.
Other options for more severe symptoms include the ED drugs and medical procedures called sympathectomies that cut the nerves to the fingers and block attacks. Botox injections are still in trials, but appear promising.
One other suggestion is alternative therapies like acupuncture. These won’t work for everyone, but some people do report success. A lot depends on finding a practitioner you connect with and who has experience with Raynaud’s sufferers.
Hope that helps and that you find some relief!
