Recently I have been diagnosed with hand nodules which are becoming more painful as I use that hand. I have to go for an x-ray but my doctor mentioned the possibility of Rheumatoid arthritis. Are they related?
This diagnosis could be related to a number of things but rheumatoid arthritis is one of them. I have no other symptoms, a history of degenerative joint/disk disease with my spine but that is it for the most part.
I do not have any problems with the joints in my fingers or any symptoms of enlarged knuckles or joint issues of the hand.
Can anyone please advise? I just want to know what to expect.
