    What does a RA nodule look like?

    I have had arthritis in my wrists/hands/back for a few years now. I had a positive Rh factor, but could not get a *diagnosis* from my reg. doc or the Rheumy. I got sick of going to Dr. after Dr. & gave up. I've since had a back injury & the back pain has superceded the arthritis pain.

    However, my left wrist has a marble sized lump that has come up right at the base of the thumb/wrist area. It is quite sore & when I push on it, I feel electricity go through my arm.

    Any ideas?

    Thx - T.

    That sounds like a ganglion - a fluid filled sac. They often disappear spontaneously or sometimes with applied pressure. In the old days, hitting them with the family bible was the cure.
