About 6 months after I was diagnosed with RA, I got mirror-image lumps on both ankles - 2 on each ankle. They popped up all at once, I noticed them one day doing dishes, dropped a spoon, looked at my ankle and yelled, lol! I was so surprised to see this.
They're on the outside, about the spot where your ankle bone is. About the size of a large walnut. One on each foot is sort of thick feeling like there is actual tissue under it, and the other is larger, less defined, and extremely soft like it's just fluid/swelling. Both are nice and round, just these huge lumps. Very unattractive, lol. I've showed every doctor I have, multiple times, and they all just say, 'Hum' and don't say anything even when I ask, 'what is this?'
Reading about RA it occurred to me that they might be nodules but they're not supposed to be on your ankles. So I just don't know... Thank you!
