Have you mentioned this to your rheumy? It's important that they know these type of changes right away..

They might do an ultrasound to see if any arteries are involved. Might draw out some fluid with a needle. If its a big problem or is causing problems - might do surgery. Hard to say exactly. Could be that your doctor will decide they don't need to anything. Do tell your doctor all you can think of because it will help them make the best decision.
