I've searched this site for info on nodules and can't find anyone discussing them. Are they uncommon? I have them up & down both sides of mt right wrist and now I'm getting nodules on top of the nodules. My doc doesn't seem to be too concerned but is ordering an MRI. Anyone out there with bumpy nodules?

I had nodules a long time ago ...........and lots of them. My rheumatologist said that for those prone to them methotreate seemed to increase them. I was fortunate that eventually when i went onto humira even though i was still taking the mtx that they mostly went away. I do know lots of people with nodules though they are not uncommon.
