I've been given a possible daignosis of Psoriatic Arthritis. Two of the key points in coming to this diagnosis was the skin rashes behind my ears, at hairline. And the swelling / reddness in my finger joints of my left hand.
At the time the rheumy saw me 2 months ago, the middle finger joint of my middle finger on my left hand was swollen, and one of the knuckles in that hand was noticeably red and tender to the touch. Since then 2 other middle joints of other fingers have swollne, one other knuckle gone red, and now one knuckle in my right hand is starting to go red and feel tender.
All the descriptions of sausage fingers, and pics show the whole finger to be swollne up like a sausage. But in my case only the joint is swollen and the rest of the finger is pretty skinny and boney.
Can this still be considered sausage fingers ???
Any info input appreciated
