What kind of Arthritis?

Hi,
This is my first pst, so If I misstep, let me know. I am 48 and have arthritis in the middle knuckle of 4 fingers. My Rheumatologist is puzzled. He said osteo usually starts in the third knuckle, RA in the first. So he is not sue what is going on with me. Does anyone else have this problem or have you heard of anyone else? He told me it wasn't normal. Helop
Blubberface.

Re: What kind of Arthritis?

Osteo affects the joints near the fingertips, RA affects joints of the hand and the middle knuckles. So does lupus. I would request a blood workup for both if you haven't had those yet.
