Subject: nodules

Hi ... i have a pea sized lump on my right elbow .... does not bother me at all ... but was just wondering how do i know if it is a ra nodule or just a bump/spot?!? i tested low possitive for rf but whenever i see consultant i wierdly seem to be on a good day and i think they doubt my symptoms. if i have it i am in very early stages but i thought that a nodule might help my cause in getting treatment ... i am not much of a sweller either as when i had a blood clot in my leg they doubted that to as i did not swell as per text book but yep scan showed blood clot xx

if you google rheumatoid arthritis nodules on elbows it will show a lot of photo's on what to expect , I got a bursa on my left elbow which is common with RA , tend to get nodules on back of my hand

having tested low positive for rf dont always mean you got RA & if you do the low rf tends to mean its easier to treat

what treatment they giving you for RA & btw the consultants know where to press & can feel inflamation in joint we dont know we got so dont worry about feeling good
