    New to Joint pain and nodules on legs

    In the last month I have started having joint pain in my ankles, wrists, knees & knuckles.  I also have nodules on my legs.  The number has gradually risen to around 13 nodules.  The doctors haven't figured it out yet.  Anyone had the same experience?Sealed

    I know there are a number of users on the sides who have asked questions about nodules.  Unfortunately, I don't want to know much about them. I would recommend that you ask your question again in a SharePost - they tend to get more traffic than the individual questions in this section, so you may get more answers.


    Good luck!

    Hey, Jen!

    I have started getting nodules and did some research on them. Both of the following sites have excellent information on these nodules that come with RA. The information from Johns Hopkins (http://www.hopkins-arthritis.org/physician-corner/case-rounds/case6/6_case.html#nodules) worked best for me. But, I also recommend the information from WebMd at


    Hope this helps ~Cynthia

    I had this years ago and it turned out to be a form of strep that settled in my joints. If it goes untreated it can cause serious damage to organs. Maybe you should be tested for strep.
