I know I have arthritis in my knees, spine, hands, shoulders and fingers but I have never been told what kind. I have big and little knots , the little ones are between my fingers and toes and getting more and more. I have one big one on my little pinkie finger and it is very painful.all of the time as well as my knees. My Mother had the kind that draws your fingers up and she lost use of both hands before she passed away. My Dad was like me. I now have this funny looking things in the palm of my hands on the main leaders to two of my fingers. It looks like a deep dimple and puffy on each side. When it rains or snows I am in so much pain I just want to ball up in a knot but can't. Any help would be appreciated.
