LOL, having RA does seem like bowling - and we're the pins.
I get a rash of tiny dots or slightly larger sized vesicles on my hand joints, itchy and painful, my rheumy said it might have something to do with inflammation but there isn't any conclusive evidence, other than alot of RA patients get these. It's called pompholyx.
Your's sound larger though, more like ganglion cysts, they usually occur in the wrist but can pop out at the finger joints. I had a huge one on my wrist last year, the size of a golf ball. It just slowly went away by itself but my doc said that they do reoccur.
