Creepy Divot Formed In Pinky Joint

Creepy Divot Formed In Pinky Joint

So, I’m relatively new to having RA - I have a mild case. But a divot formed in my pinky joint in three-four days time. It is really creeping me out. I don’t know if any other way to describe it, other than a divot. If my finger was made out of clay, it would be as though someone pressed it inward slightly. It doesn’t hurt, and it is my only affected finger. I have an appt. with my rheumatologist next week, but does ANYONE know what this is?

I have developed some ugly cists on my fingers. I'm not too esteemed for outwardly flaws as I used to be more flawed than that from inside out.
God bless you sister. And if your finger flaw is all you have count your blessings

I was told that it was a cyst that will keep coming even if I had surgery. Confused 😕 I have another one on my rt pointer finger.

The nodules are different from dermal pits. Typically the pits are not painful whereas the pits can be very much so.

Those are nodes that will get worse with out treatment! Also red painful spots could appear.

I have several of these wee things on my fingers. I was told they're nodules. They can be really sore if I hit them buy mistake.
