Hi Peediedj67

Get a diagnosis. There are several possibilities for bent fingers, lumps and bumps in the hands that are not DD. If your GP thinks it is DD don't stop there and get a referral anyway. Let's say it is DD. Slight bend over 6 months sounds modest and maybe it will quiesce, although there are a few options for treatment that help at the early stages you can look into. It's not life threatening and in most cases people manage just fine : I still play piano, tennis, now into SUP and so on, so life, love, work and play goes on.

Best wishes SB
