I realize this message was from 2009; however, I am wondering if the original poster ever found out what it was, or if they even still have it?
I have the exact same thing ... small in size, comes and goes in very specific areas of my body. My right hand, between my pinky and ring finger nuckle, my right shoulder blade, my right forearm ... and the size is like you said, the size of a dime.
I have Lupus SLE and Neuropathy ... however, both docs have no idea.
You are right ... if it isn't killing you they don't seem to care. Although they occur at different spots on the body and some only for about 30 minutes while others last for hours. Oh well. Thank you for responding!!
