I was wondering if we get more nodules as we age? My arthritis is fairly quiet at the moment so it isn't as if I'm having a flare, but I have 3 new nodules on my hands. One of these is being removed surgically because it's on my thumb joint and is hindering my grip and the use of my hand. One of the others, which has just started growing has been infected but it has come to a head and is less sore now it's popped! (Sorry if you're eating your tea 🤔) They are unsightly but, hey-ho, I haven't had pretty hands for 34 years so I'm not worried about that!
I do have another large one on my elbow but that's been there for years and only gets in the way when I have my sleeves pushed up or pulled down.
I'd be interested to know what you think.
Love, Legs x
