Rheumatoid arthritis is a type of arthritis where your immune system attacks the tissue lining the joints on both sides of your body.
Uncontrolled inflammation damages cartilage, which normally acts as a “shock absorber” in the joints. In time, this can deform your joints.
RA usually starts to develop between the ages of 30 and 60. But anyone can develop rheumatoid arthritis.
Rheumatoid Arthritis Symptoms:
Pain, swelling, stiffness, and tenderness in more than one joint.
Stiffness, especially in the morning or after sitting for long periods.
Pain and stiffness in the same joints on both sides of your body.
Fatigue (extreme tiredness).
Family history: You’re more likely to develop RA if you have a close relative who also has it.
Sex: Women and people designated female at birth are two to three times more likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis.
Smoking: Smoking increases a person’s risk of rheumatoid arthritis and makes the disease worse.
Obesity: Your chances of developing RA are higher if you have obesity.
