Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic, inflammatory, multisystem, autoimmune disorder. It is a disabling and painful condition which can lead to substantial loss of mobility due to pain and joint destruction.
I have arthritis in my hands, among several other places. The knuckles on both hands on my middle finger have knots on them and swell and hurt. The nails on both these fingers are slightly discolored,. Not really yellow, just not as white as the others. I've scrubbed, bleached and everything else I know to do but nothing changes. They don't seem to have a fungus. They are healthy except for the discoloration. Does that have anything to do with arthritis. Of course that's the least of my worries concerning this disease, but just curious to know if anyone else has experience this.
