More correctly Arthritis.
This creaking old guy gets sore bones in his hands after practicing.
Take Glucosamine Sulfate daily.
Use Arnica Cream topically sometimes with a few drops of Aspercream.
Was wondering what you more experienced keyboarders use.
Hope this is the correct place to post this.
Many thanks...

Oh Gary.
How I wish I could. :(
Truthfully... the last time I did, when I had a lot of pain, it seemed as though I felt the pain more accutely.
Appreciate the thought, 'though.
Don't think I'd try that again.

Me too . . Painful fat and deformed knuckles.
Fish oil supplements or real fish as sardines or salmon also helps.
As well magnesium supplements.
Days of high humidity are a killer. Hands, shoulders and hips are my handicap.

Glucosamine Sulphate, I was told by a old (and presubly wise) doctor NOT to use chondoitrin, but I do NOT remember why - hell i barely remember breakfast... That and regularly throughout the day flexing the fingers and an old exercise of holding the hands upright and straight, then bending one at a time and holding at each finger and joint separately - lower, hold, raise. Then the whole finger - lower, keep it straight - hold, raise. Some English exercise system from the 60s, that was the free lesson.. I am a bit stiff, but usually no pain from the joints - I just lost my finger calluses by not playing for two years during Covid, so I've got to get those back.

Thanks, Sound smith.
Rereading your #8 post jogs whats left of my memory.
NOT to use chondoitrin, but I do NOT remember why
I remember reading that glucosomine molecules are very tiny which allows them to permeate the joint.
Chondroiten, not so much. Compared grapes to watermelons.
Thereby spending the extra for chondroiten doesn't make sense. Just goes out as waste.
Tried explaining this to my daughter, back in the day.
Don't think it took.
