Nodules/lumps on ankles and knees
Tooterbug1964 posted:
Hello, this is my first time blogging. I have recently been diagnosed with RA. Before that I was diagnosed with MCTD and Fibromyalgia. My question is, I developed these lumps, I don't know if they are nodules, I have them bilaterally, they just literally popped one day in March and have not gone away. They are around my ankles/heels, and behind my knees and in front of knees and wrists and I have a lot of joint pain from these plus in my hips and elbow. The question is will these lumps? Nodules ever go away?? I am on Prednisone 20 mg daily and Methotrexate. Please help.
