Is it possible to get joint pain without tenderness? i can feel a pain emanating from my finger joints/wrists (which lasts a few seconds, sometimes a few minutes and then goes away) but when i palpate it, squeeze it, press down on the joint I can't seem to locate the pain or feel any tenderness in the joint.
is this possible with RA? - for the pain to come and go and for the joint to not be tender? i thought once there is swelling that is causing pain, the joint should be painful/tender to touch?
would appreciate your thoughts! thanks
