well... both rheumatoid arthritis AND methotrexate can cause those lump-feeling things under the skin. There are some good treatments for the bumps, like injecting steroids right into them, but they don't always work. I've had 4 such bumps, two went away and two have not. If the bump is causing pain, complain to every medical person who will listen. In the worst cases, they can remove them surgically. If they aren't causing pain, you're probably going to have to live with it.
RA can be a lifetime battle, but the weapons are getting better.
