Subject: Heberdens nodes

Hello everyone. I have recently noticed that i have Heberden nodes. it's getting bigger on my index finger and i just wondered if there are any thing i can take to stop this getting worse.
I have checked stuff out on the computer but haven't come up with anything. I like to do my hobbies such as craft, sewing and art and i am worried that one day this might stop me from doing it. Any advice will be appreciated.

Jill I've got them on 2 fingers I think it's because I write a lot and it's those 2 fingers that's affected. They hurt like hell if I knock them as well. Never heard of anything like getting rid of them but my bumps feel like part of the bone and the Rheumie told me they are related to Osteo Arthritis.
