Does anyone have nodules on their fingers?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I apologise if I have already asked this question but I wonder if anyone with fibro has nodules on their fingers. I have them on all but one finger now and get sharp pains from my fingers, hands and wrists throughout the day, as well as the pain everywhere else. I also tested positive for ANA and was told that i had an auto immune disease. I was told by my old rheumy that fibro isn't an auto immune disease so I would be grateful of any advice. Thank you all.

      Thats what I have thought for years but have had rheumatoid factor neg blood tests, apparently though you can still test neg in your blood for this and still have the disease. They seem to be getting bigger by the day. My main concern is that if it goes undiagnosed the complications get pretty serious and I have been going to different rheumatologists for about 15 years now. Roll on Friday and fingers crossed this one will give me more answers! Thanks Tian x

      Thank you. Mine have appeared  very quickly in each finger  apart from one, over the last few weeks. I had  them on both thumbs a few years ago  and they got huge. Of course just as my rheumatology appointment came up they had completely disappeared without a trace! Sods law eh. I have looked them up and it said in osteoarthritis they only appear after the menopause?  Do they do anything about them? X
