Sounds like a nodule caused by OA. I have them on a few knuckles and they are very painfull. I have had mine diagnosed. My middle finger won't make a fist shape anymore the knuckle is so big in comparison to the others. I am the same always hurting then really painful at times.
lol if you are concerned it is best to get it checked out to be sure.

Wishing you a Happy and Healthy New Year.x
Stay safe.

Hi lol,
Pleased to hear you are getting some meds.
I hope the methotrexate works for you.
I can't believe the nurse told you to go on youtube to look.
I hope OT get you some decent splints.

What we have to go through.

Take care speak soon xxx
