Arthritis causes inflammation in the joints causing pain and stiffness that can worsen with age. Additionally, inflammation causes redness, warmth, swelling, in the joint. Another form of arthritis is Rheumatoid arthritis [RA] and it affects about 1% of Americans. Generally, people develop RA in middle-age. There is no cure for RA; and it is treated with medications, rest and exercise, and, in some cases, surgery to correct joint damage. Although the disease is more common in women than in men, men usually have more severe symptoms. Rheumatoid arthritis affects joints on both sides of the body, such as both hands, both wrists, or both knees. The inflammation associated with RA can cause bone erosion and joint deformity.
People with RA may experience:
Pain areas: in the joints, back, or muscles
Joints: stiffness, swelling, tenderness, or weakness
Whole body: fatigue, anemia, or malaise
Skin: lumps or redness
Hand: bump on the finger or swelling
Also common: flare, dry mouth, physical deformity, or sensation of pins and needles
