Hi there, I am dealing with something similar- I I have a pea sized lump on my R thumb knuckle, it began as a bruise, it was very sore and also felt like a burn. Immediately, within hours, the lump emerged and that was months ago. it can be really sore on some days. I am feeling this same thing happening on random fingers, it begins as a bad itch, then like badly bruised then a burn. At times a very small spot will emerge and grow, then fade. So far I have no more lumps except my thumb, but the lump there has changed the landscape of my finger. When it happens, it occurs on the top knuckle of a finger. I am clueless. Also- altho we all deal with significant pain, I can not describe how painful this is when it flares. If I hit a flaring finger in the right spot [which for some reason is so easy to do!], the pain is gut wrenching and can almost double me over.
