This complicates the problem you have and there will be no answer here i am afraid. It maybe you are not in a postion to play bass and in trying to do so aggrivate the arthritis, therefore worsen the condition. You need medical advice on this and explain what it is you want to do with your hands (play bass). The condition need to be treated first, it is priority in your life, do not give it a chance to deteriate. Good luck and hope you find an answer.
