    The index finger on my right hand has started to twist toward my middle finger. It doesn't really hurt and I can still use it, but it is just twisting at the end. Has anyone else had this happen? Is this a symptom of anything in particular? I have so many things wrong with me I am assuming this is connected to one of them.

    I have very twisted fingers on my right hand and have had for quite some time. I was recently diagnosed with RA and the rheumatalogist says the drawing is due to the disease. I hope this helps.

    I have been told I do not have arthritis by an orthopedic surgeon. I don't necessarily trust him though. He was my doc through workers' comp before the post office finally retired me.

    I read your bio. I live in a 100 year old house in Tennessee also. I found that kind of interesting. I'm in Chattanooga, how about you?

    can you see a rheumatologist? Orthos are bone specialists, but there are over 100 types of arthritis and some are systemic diseases (like RA), which orthos probably don't know much about. He may have meant you don't have osteoarthritis, if he checked your joints and/or took x-rays of your hands. Finger twisting can be from OA or RA, and probably other types of arthritis, as well. Certainly you don't want whatever it is progressing and causing more twisting, especially if it is RA, so please do consider getting checked by a rheumy.
