My lupus seems to 'selectively' affect my joints. Sometimes it's just one index finger; sometimes it's my thumbs; sometimes it's my feet. It's never been all of my joints at one time. My doctor says I'm developing osteoarthriitis in my joints and apparently that can happen in only certain joints as well. I don't think you necessarily have to expect that all of your fingers will swell up. Lupus is a very individual disease, and no two of us are alike! (Don't you love being 'special?' :lol: )
