I would welcome advice from anyone who experiences this problem. Mine have become ever more pronounced over the last 3 months, or so. My GP has been non-commital, as she, "doesn't have sufficient experience", and to ask my consultant, who doesn't really have the time. Whilst I appreciate that this is a cosmetic issue, this is REALLY getting me down about my RA, as I thought I could come to terms with everything it was going to give me. When I spoke about it with my GP - only today, I hasten to add - and mentioned multiple internet sites that I look at, and that I didn't want to exaggerate/ self-diagnose, she suggested that I would, "know my own condition best", and even went so far to suggest that sites may hold a wealth of information. What is affecting me now is developing nodules on my fingers: middle & ring finger of my right hand, right elbow nodules for the last 6 months. All nodules are on the right hand side of my body. I have taken a couple of pictures of these, mainly for the purpose of seeing my Consultant (by Sod's Law, everyone looks & feels great when they go for a review), but will upload them if anyone can give me any advice. That'll be a treat: everyonelookatmyelbow.com
