Rheumatoid knots vs. osteoarthritis knots- I was diagnosed in Sept. 09 with RA. One concluding factor (among many) were the rheumatoid knots on the top joints of my thumbs and some fingers. I now have one on my heel. My first question is, do these knots ever go away? If pressed a certain way they hurt! =(
Second question- is there such a thing as osteoarthritis knots? I saw my primary Friday for an x-ray and she noted my knots could be osteoarthritis knots too. I looked at her thinking..."I wasn't diagnosed with that type of arthritis." Geez, how many different types could I be diagnosed with? One is certainly enough for me.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. If anyone has any advice on how to at least ease the pain in my knots, I would appreciate it beyond belief!
