Comes with acute pain and when the nodules appear, the pain subsides....until you have a "bad" day or flare up. I have had two similar nodules suddenly develop on both my index fingers - 1st joint that meets at the hand, and recently, a small nodule appeared on the mid joint of my left middle finger.
I'm so sorry. I have a caring rheumy. I go next month. We will see how that go. I'm not religious but i'll keep you in my thoughts.
Check with a rheumotolist. I think that's arthritis
The nodules are a result of Arthritis.
You need to get seen by a Rheumatologist.
Thanks for sharing! I saw two rheumys. The first did nothing but ask a bunch of questions, diagnose fibro and recommended me to a fibro group. The second rheumy did some blood work, had me fill out a questionnaire, looked over my hands (that was over a year ago), and said I have fibro. That's it. They do not want to follow-up with their patients it seems. We lack a lot of quality here with regards to medical practitioners. Now I don't have a family physician, he just retired. It takes years to get a referral and my fear is, what kind of specialist will see me and will they care enough to follow thoroughly with testing? It is quite a disheartening affair to be sick nowadays! Very frustrating to say the least! The only specialist that has helped over the last ten years is my orthopedic surgeon. But then again, the only treatments there have been repeated infiltrations and medication.
