Has anyone had a rheumatoid nodule as their first symptom of RA? I have a painful swelling on the back of my finger but no other symptoms

I have had nodules. They can be very painful. A dermatologist is one of the many specialists I see in association with my RA & autoimmune stuff.

I had a nodule on my right elbow in the first couple years. It would come and go. I usually notice these get worse during times of stress, ate something that bothered me or a flare coming on. Everyone is different though but when you see this address it with your doctor ASAP so they can help you.
