Do any of you experience itching down inside your joints when they're inflamed? My hands have been achy and my knuckles really sore this winter, and sometimes (usually at night), the knuckle joints feel like they itch deep down inside. I have the urge to scratch them, but it does nothing since the itching is not on the skin. It's an annoyance more than anything, but I'm curious about what it it a normal effect of inflammation? I see the rheum. doc next week and wonder if I should mention it or if it matters—I feel silly sometimes asking about little things like that. rolleyes

Hi Bee,
Wow, that sounds really annoying!  I have to say I've never experienced anything like that.  I wish I had some info for you.
