    Hi All:

    I have been told I have mild osteo in my shoulder, neck and lower back. In the past two months I've been getting this sore lump like swelling in the middle joint of my thumb.

    I've heard that osteo affects the base of the thumb, but I can't seem to find anything out about swelling in the middle joint of the thumb.

    Does anyone else have this and what was it diagnosed as?

    Thanks for all and any info you can provide.

    Could it be the start of Rheumatoid arthritis ? I don't mean to alarm you , but I have heard that this type of arthritis sometimes starts in the thumb.

    I hope that is NOT rheumatoid arthritis ! I hope it is something minor that can be "fixed" easily.

    I have a bump like that on one of my fingers. Some days it really burns. My mom had the same thing. Arthritis.

    I've posted on the arthritis board as well. Just wondering if there's anyone else with arthritis on the middle joint of the thumb.
