Blood filled blister on the thumb joint. Have arthritis. Pain in the joints. Concerned
I have what looks like a blood blister (doesn t hurt and no injury caused this) over my thumb joint where I have been told I have arthritis . I used my thumb a lot yesterday and this spot appeared last night. The joint hurts a lot this morning. This has happened once before. What causes this and should I be concerned?
Hi, Welcome to HCM, This may be due to some haemorrhage in the joint. It will be better to consult your doctor and get a check up . Recurrent collection of blood in joint may need a haematological work out to rule out a bleeding disorder.
