Another autoimmune disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis is said to affect approximately 1.3million people in the United States alone. The root cause of RA is unknown, and can affect all ages. Characterized by swollen, stiff, and painful joints, fatigue, loss of function, and redness, tenderness and eventual deformity of the joints. While there are alternating periods of flares and remission, there is no known cure for RA.
The chronic periods of inflammation eventually causes permanent destruction and deformity of the joints. While arthritis and joint pain are synonymous, Rheumatoid Arthritis can also affect the tendons, ligaments, and muscles around the joints, as well as the body’s internal organs, one of the reasons it is sometimes referred to as Rheumatic Disease.
