I apologise for this being my second questions in a few days. I have OA in my hands and tender Heberden's nodes at the ends of my fingers. I also get flashes of pain in my fingers that only last a few seconds, but are painful nevertheless. Does anyone know if this is also part of arthritis? I get it in my toes, too. Wondering about peripheral neuropathy, although I don't have any numbness. Something else to ask my GP about?
