    Hey karl, I was thinking about you the other day, and wondering how you are getting on: not too good by the sounds of things. Poor you, I think one can get inflammation anywhere in the body, and if it is causing you that much discomfort I think you should go and see your GP. He may not know what is behind it, but he might be able to advise a course of action, or refine your meds somehow. I hope it improves soon and that you perk up. DD

    Hi Karl

    If you are in this much pain due to a lump in the rear then yes you should definitely speak to your GP or Rheumatologist asap, and get it checked out as I'm sure the anxiety of it is probably making it worse, and lets face it you have enough to contend with. As DD said you can get swelling in any joint but I suspect the lump part is adding to the pain because of where it is.

    Best wishes
