For the last 3-4 months I have a problem with one of my fingers.
On the side of the finger above the knuckle on the soft tissue area it is very sore.
it is not inflamed or swollen, but if I press on it or even try and open a bottle and the bottle touches or presses on that area it is excruciating.

Has any one else had a similar problem?

Thanking you all in advance
Celia <_<

Celia, I have that same problem a few months back. It just went away on its own. It was felt like it was bruised inside.

Now I am experincing a weird feeling on two of my fingers that feel like metal scraping through my muscle or veins.

One thing I can tell you is keep an eye on it and let the doctor know. I see my doctor in a few weeks and I'm going to let him know wht is going on with mine, Take care, Sam

I've had a weird sensation like that just above & on the side of one knuckle. I have NO idea what it is but it almost stings like it's a splinter or something only it's been there for months & there is nothing visible that I can see. It hurts more if something rubs over it than it does if pressure is applied though.

Hi, Celia. Sorry to hear about your new pain. I am not a doctor, but it is possible that it could be an early sign of Calcinosis. I would add it to the list of things to bring to the attention of your rheumatologist at the next visit.
Warm wishes,

I have been having this problem for about 6 months. I've seen my rheumatologist twice during that time and he didn't seem too concerned. Hmmmm lol
