    It doesn't ring any bells. I suggest you take photos and, if it persists, ask the docs.

    I don't suppose you banged them while they were swollen?

    I have a number of bruises at the moment as I am rebuilding my sulph dose after a break but none on my knuckles. It's good you have this appointment and I hope they have an answer! DD

    Yes, do mention it. I'd forgotten, until I read DD's post, that most, if not all, DMARDS can cause bruising. I'm rarely free of them round my knees which I use to push the coffee table around :oops: You just get used to it and that's OK as long as it's not excessive but an ask of the rheumatology nurse would be a good way to go.
