Painful bouchards nodes have developed on mu left hand middle pip finger joint the past year and a half. And the past year on my right hands index finger pip joint. Very ugly and painful....I had xrays Dr. Told me it is Osteoarthritis and they are bouchards nodes and nothing can be done....I need these gone!!! Anyone know what can be done the bones are getting large unsightly spurs and the swelling on top is like a ball on top and the pain is horrible! I am 52 and I need something done...should I be tested for RA? I dont know anyone that has these ugly nodes on their fingers....so depressing.
