For years I've been having pain in my hands along with weakness and tingling (I am being tested yearly for MS) however starting about 6 months ago I started getting little bumps appearing on my finger joints. When they appear, it hurts to move that finger at all and then over a couple days they disappear on their own. Tonight one whole side of the joint on my finger is swollen. Has anyone ever experienced this or have any input?

      @1lovemyheatingp8d I actually have had the worst of luck with doctors 🙃 I'm currently searching because I don't even have a primary. I'm lost right now. My spinal tap wasn't too too bad. I imagined it being much worse, it was mainly just so uncomfortable. They ended up hitting a nerve so my whole leg was just off feeling for a day or so. The real pain was when my spinal tap leaked. That was the worst pain I have ever felt in my life. And to fix that, they had to do a blood patch which was the most uncomfortable/miserable feeling I have ever felt in my life.

      @BeeeeMe I’m so sorry to hear that. It sounds like you have a great medical team and I’m glad that they decided to recheck every year. Did the spinal tap hurt?

      @1lovemyheatingp8d I don't mind you asking :) I had been having issues for years and was misdiagnosed with a couple things. God finally blessed me with a good doctor who started looking into MS. They did every test possible, ending in a spinal tap. They found lesions on my MRI however no other tests came back positive. So what they settled on is that they will keep MS on the back burner and recheck things every year. They made this decision because I am only 26 (was 22 at the time) and they think maybe it will progress as I get older.

      I just had my mri done as well and it’ll be ruled out since there were no lesions.. but it stated that I had some kind of sinus disease

      @BeeeeMe If you don’t mind me asking, what made them test yearly for MS? I also have weakness and tingling in my arms and legs along with headaches and cognitive problems and they did one MRI to check for MS and just ruled it out.

      Honestly the bumps i get on jointed areas is my arthritis so maybe you should look into the different types and discuss it with your doctor. To ease it in the mean time you should apply ice, rest them as much as possible, and little excercises can help as well. If you dont have physical therapy i would consider it but you can look up excercises for arthritis nodules and see if that helps. Hope ur well.
