    Default My ring is seriously stuck.

    HELP!

    I can't get my wedding ring off. I seriously think I'm going to have to have it cut off. Any great ideas for what might work to get it off? I've already tried ice water, twisting/turning of course, and using lotion. I don't know what else to do, and it can't stay there. My hands are already starting to get a little tingly at certain parts of the day.

    I would try oil...baby oil, olive oil, vegetable oil...whatever you got. Make it nice and greasy.

    Get really cold - hold an ice pack until your fingers start to shrink a little. Then use anything possible to get that little booger to slip off.

    I hope you get it off ASAP!

    I'd try first thing in the morning (or whenever you're usually the least swollen normally). I'd then do an ice pack on it for awhile followed by oil to help slip it off.

    Yes, ice and any kind of oil you can find. I hope you can get it off.

    Yep, oil and cold hands. Clean out your freezer and then try it, lol! I have a friend who resorted to lube...worked though

    Good luck!

    Maybe you could try elevating it AND icing it? It may sound silly but gravity definitely contributes to swelling. I would just do a combo of ice, elevate and oil of some kind. The same thing happened to me when I was pregnant and when I finally got it off, it stayed off until after Jordan was born because it freaked me out!

    Ditto- you gotta get your WHOLE body really cold. Maybe in a cold shower? (or hang out in the a/c with little clothes on, while drinking ice water. That always works for me) Once your teeth are chattering, use some shampoo/lotion/oil to slide it off.

    I hope you don't have to cut it. I've cut off rings at the hospital before. makes me sad, every time.
