I am a 38 yo female with no diagnosis! Here are my symptoms: hard nodules on top of 5 knuckles of fingers with pain only when pressing on them, negative rheumatoid bloodwork, ironically found that I am hyperthyroid from this bloodwork with unknown cause (had uptake scan and ultrasound of thyroid), now I have knots that have come up on the lower part of my shin and ankle. My physician is puzzled. He has made a referral for me to see a hand surgeon, but I am not so sure that this will be my "answer". I have several disc-bulges in my back and neck, so am in lots of pain and have been recently told that I have scoliosis. I am wondering if this could all be related. I am sick of doctors and feeling not myself! If anyone has advise, I would greatly appreciate it!

  • did you ever receive a diagnosis? I am having the same problem: 38yr old nodules have popped up on my fingers and ankles - no RA factor in bloodwork - and no other health conditions (that I am aware of). wondering what you have found out
