  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
    Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder that can affect more than just your joints. An autoimmune disorder, rheumatoid arthritis occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks your own body's tissues.


    Signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis may include:
    • Tender, warm, swollen joints
    • Joint stiffness that is usually worse in the mornings and after inactivity
    • Fatigue, fever and loss of appetite

    Early rheumatoid arthritis tends to affect your smaller joints first — particularly the joints that attach your fingers to your hands and your toes to your feet.

    As the disease progresses, symptoms often spread to the wrists, knees, ankles, elbows, hips and shoulders. In most cases, symptoms occur in the same joints on both sides of your body.

    About 40% of people who have rheumatoid arthritis also experience signs and symptoms that don't involve the joints. Areas that may be affected include:

    • Skin
    • Eyes
    • Lungs
    • Heart
    • Kidneys
    • Salivary glands
    • Nerve tissue
    • Bone marrow
    • Blood vessels

    Rheumatoid arthritis signs and symptoms may vary in severity and may even come and go. Periods of increased disease activity, called flares, alternate with periods of relative remission — when the swelling and pain fade or disappear. Over time, rheumatoid arthritis can cause joints to deform and shift out of place.
