Welcome here. Yes, those thick gloves are pesky and tiring if you write a lot because your stretching against your gloves as you write. I hold my pen between my index and third finger and thumb on other side. It's like pinching the pen. Works good.
Maybe try dictation on your computer to have it type for you. For iPhone or iPad you can use the special computer pen with rubber tip and plunk away. Yes it's slower but gets job done.There like five bucks. Office supply computer store will have lots of ideas to.
It sounds like you should be in garments daily if your swelling. Maybe your not as mild as you think. Trying wearing daily and see if your swell improves. Your gloves don't sound like their fitted right if your going numb. Pull up on glove thumb and see if it's relieves numbness If so you might need to change it. Same with juzo glove if that's a problem to. I think most custom can add a pocket for extra compression.
Edited to add. Sorry was in hurry for you yesterday. Try below.
Try jovipak box dual layer glove.very thin glove and airy. Had area for palm and dorsom pad Order from brightlifedirect.com. Excellent return policy. I think you will like this one the best.
