Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder that can affect more then just your joints. Rheumatoid arthritis occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks your own body's tissues.
 
 

Cause of Joint Pain

Rheumatoid arthritis affects the lining  of your joints. Unlike the wear-and-tear damage of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis affects the lining of your joints, causing a painful swelling that can eventually result in bone erosion and joint deformity. As a result of the attack, fluid builds up in the joints. This causes pain in the joints and inflammation that can be systemic, meaning it can occur throughout the body. 

Signs and Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis May Include:

  • Tender, warm, swollen joints
  • Joints stiffness, usually worse in the mornings and after inactivity
  • Fatigue, fever and lose of appetite
