Recently the middle joints of my little fingers are very tender, red and tend to be very itchy, if that makes any sense and I've also begun noticing some tiny red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodules</span> at the first joint of my index fingers and little fingers. Some times the nodules are a little more pronouced than other times. I've been trying to self-medicate in terms of taking advil or aleve, but the discomfort is not going away. Any thoughts or similar cases?
Nicole I am no doctor - but I have done lots of research on nodules - from what I have read - most lung <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodules</span> are benign. I would not worry - sounds like you doctor is right - beneign lung <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodules</span> - I also have many scattered nodules - and if these were going to kills me - I should be dead by now..........mine are also up to 7mm .... small nodules are almost always benign..........stop worrying and enjoy your life. Life is precious - we need to enjoy what we have ........

I took an anti-biotic for 3 weeks then had ultrasound to look for damages to my heart and so on but nothing was found. I now seem to be having problems with my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger</span> joints and elbow of my left hand and I was wondering if that could be an affect from the rheumatic fever or if it may be some type of arthritis? I am also experiencing issues in my knees and have had chronic problems with my lower back and hips but nothing is ever found at the doctor. I also have had problems with circulation.
My rashes are always in the same places, my shoulder blades, lower back, inside elbows and lower legs. Then the psoriatic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arthritis</span>... The last joint on my left pinky finger is permanently bend. This has happened over the past few years. I also had lower back pain for years, an MRI several years ago revealed some changes to my sacro joints. Then I also read that people with psoriatic arthritis sometimes have dysphagia. My esophagus troubles?
in 2001, I had positive rheumatoid factor, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodules</span>, but low ESR. I always have low ESR regardless of how sick I was or what infections I had, etc. After first being seropositive I have since then been negative and my ESR is always like 1 or 2. I get tendonitis all the time and have during the whole time. MRI has shown the tendonitis, so it isn't in my head. MTX keeps it at bay. Prednisone does too, but makes my tendons weak. My first rheumatologist of 5 years said I had Seroneg RA.
Many conditions can cause red bumps on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger</span> joints. in dermatomyositis there is appearance of purple or red rash commonly seen on knuckles, eyelids, knees or toes along with muscle weakness. The treatment options are corticosteroid drugs, heat therapy, physical therapy. in Granuloma annulare there are red, purple, skin-colored or pearly white bumps or ring-shaped lesions on hands, feet, elbows or knees.
one day my thumb and index <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger</span> went numb, another day my pink and ring <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger</span> became cold. Now I have muscles twitches all the time, my calves, thighs, abdominal muscles, buttocks, hand, etc. The past 4 days I've had extreme daytime drowsiness, it's very different from being tired or not getting enough sleep....this feeling is like someone has drugged me and I just can't stay awake. I have had some nights where I'm wired at night and can't sleep....

About 3 weeks ago I found a nodul on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger</span>. I went to the doctor's and he wants me to have blood test to rule out rheumatoid arthritis. I had an x-ray of the other hand because two of my finger's joints (the ones below the nail) hurt when I move them but he couldn't reveal anything important. I'm very worried about it I know it's a serious disease. It's a nodul on the finger's joint always means rheumatoid arthritis???
at the top of the right lung directly above where one of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodules</span>. The doctor has ruled out bursitis / <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arthritis</span> in the shoulder and has said the problem does appear to be something "internal" and believes the problem maybe attributed to the location of the nodules in relationship to a group of nerves (?).
Over the past 11yrs I have suffered 8 recurrances of Rheumatic Fever each episode usually lasting around 6-10mnths,waxing & waning after 3mnths. The more episodes I suffered the longer the episodes seem to last and became closer together. The 1st 2 episodes lasted only 4months.I am still in an episode now-10months.

) Last week my knuckles started hurting terribly on both hands like I had punched a wall. Then the other day my knuckles started getting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodules</span> and bumps on them like little BB's. I consulted my school nurse and she says that it looks like arthritis and stressed that I should get them checked out. My questions: 1) Am I too old to just now develop JRA or something similar at 17. 2) What treatment options do I have if it is indeed arthritis.
lumps appear overnight sometimes and has one also on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger</span> joint. doc did blood tests and biopsy. tried to remove one from arm but too deep inside. he thought viral from blood tests but biopsy said otherwise. he's now going to send to dermatologist, within six months. I'm worried, any ideas?

I think you have some fair idea about RA diagnosis and also about RF.Take care and come back to us with further queries.
I recently was evaluated due to multiple joint pain (mostly hands, hip, back and feet) - progressively worse over past 3 months. Two <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger</span> have hard <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodules</span> at end joints, red, painful, swollen. Constant pain in hip with walking, standing or sititng. Pain in feet upon arising - slowly gets better. After sitting for a period of time, takes me a while to walk correctly as lower joints/muscles hurt. Fatigue. Sometimes experience tingling sensations in my feet.
Also I would suggest you to review your shoulder for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arthritis</span>, any injury to any ligaments and also recollect if you had any injuries, falls and your detailed history of your military training/injuries of the past years will be very helpful. Also ask the Orthopedician for reviewing thoracic outlet syndrome. You can take some intermittent anti inflammatory drugs and after diagnosis go for a proper course of treatment. Take care!
I have also started getting these painful nodules on the palms of my hands at the joints - both those in the fingers and those in your hand where you get callouses...like at the very bottom joint of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger</span>. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nodules</span> are extremely painful to the touch. I have lost the ability to touch the tips of my fingers to the palms of the hand - I cannot close my hands nor make a fist. I cannot walk up and down steps without using walls and railings, side-stepping, and gimping.
I have C3-C4 disc herniation with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arthritis</span> and narrowing of the cervical spine. For the past few months i am experiencing the oddest sensation in my right ear with pulling, numbness, and fullness. I also have episodes of ear redness, burning, and hot or cold sensation. My ear bothers me almost all day, every day. I have a very hard time getting a comfortable position for my neck while I sleep, have some pain, neck numbness/stiffness moving up my head at times.
I am confused how both of my parents have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arthritis</span> (badly) I am showing all the symptoms of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arthritis</span> ( very miserable most days) but tests for inflammation are negative. Is there something else to check for so that I am not so tired and in pain everyday? I get migraines, I have Crohns and I am so tired almost everyday that I feel woozy.
Not quite RA, but I had a bout of Reactive arthritis before treatment, and some early signs of AS (essentially an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arthritis</span> of the spine). I have HLAB27, a tissue type assoicated with immune / <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arthritis</span> issues. I had no reccurencies on treatment of peg-intron and Riba. If anything, my weight loss over the course of the treatment seemed to help me, it has taken weight of my knees (which have some lasting nerve damage from the arthrities), and my back.
Wow you posted on my birthday and we seem to have a few of the same symptoms. I am in need of relief ASAP. This is the type of pain that wears on your nerves and tends to make one a bit irritable. I am 56 and mine also is mostly at night here's my story. I am a 56 yr young female. Who is a Christian and loves the Lord. Before all this occurred and even after some what enjoyed living, traveling, dancing, gardening, being with friends and family to the fullest. But now I do as much as I can do.
The iritis would go through periods of many flare ups close together, and then would settle to maybe once a year, and back again. in my 30's I started experiencing hand pain. It was in all my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger</span> joints, and my hands would feel very hot, this usually intensified as the day wore on. I was also diagnosed with Asthma and Thyroid during this time period.
I am a 42 year old female who was diagnosed 6 years ago with a microbacterium mariunum infection in the middle joint of my right middle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger</span>. after years of drug therapy and 6 surgeries including 3 joint replacements all is well. in January of 06, i injured my left wrist, 5 days later it swelled so bad that they felt it was cellulitis (though it was never confirmed) and i was put on IV antibiotics. After the antibiotics, i developed nodules on the base of my left foot right at the toes.
