Tendon Nodules as first symptom?

  • By viperkl115

    Was anyone’s first sign/symptom within the tendons? I seemly overnight developed trigger finger and thumb pain with a nodule at the thumb joint following a month later. Negative labs except for slightly elevated RA factor of 30. I have had sensitive tendons for years though.
