Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic, inflammatory disease that causes pain, swelling, stiffness, and loss of function in various joints of the body. RA can vary greatly from person to person. It can vary from a mild disease which lasts a few months to two years and causes little to no damage to mild to moderate disease with periods of worsening symptoms called ‘flares’, to severe disease that is active most of the time and which lasts many years and leads to serious joint damage and disability.
