10. Nodules

Nodules are semi-hard lumps that form under the skin near the affected joints. They can appear in many parts of the body but are most likely to develop at the back of the elbows, and some people have even reported developing them in their eyes. The amount of nodules that develop in a patient depends on how advanced the condition is. Even though nodules are more likely to appear in people who have advanced rheumatoid arthritis, they can appear at any stage and affect people of all ages. In some cases, the nodules are reminiscent of gout, which is another form of arthritis.
