For a few days now I've been having increased pain in my hands when I use them. My left hand (dominate hand) has been making popping noises in the knuckles when I make a fist. It's prone to swelling and stiffness.
Today I noticed a small knot developing on my ring finger at the second joint. It hurts to bend that finger any time but especially in the mornings when I first wake up.
Does lupus cause this or am I'm developing arthritis? My mother has it in her hands and the knot looks like her fingers.
Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Glaucoma, Asthma, Hypothyriodism, Sleep Apnea, OA, Depression, Allergies, and benign familia tremors

Pick them up and throw them right back at them! :))
