If you find yourself with creaking, aching joints, you may be suffering from rheumatoid arthritis.
RedRiver Health and Wellness Center provides medical help with rheumatoid arthritis. This autoimmune disorder is extremely common, especially among the elderly, though younger people may get it, too.
The Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease characterized by the chronic inflammation of the joint linings.
This causes mild to severe pain that not only affects the joints, but may travel through the body as well. Like all autoimmune disorders, the immune system is mistakenly attacking your body’s own tissues.
Rheumatoid arthritis may turn into a debilitating disease if left unmanaged, which greatly affects the quality of life. It may severely limit your day-to-day activities.
Some of the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis may include, but are not limited to:
- Painful joints
- Deformed joints
- Hard bumps or nodules under the skin on the arms
- Reduced range of motion
- Difficulty sleeping
- Sudden weight loss
- Dry mouth
- Eye inflammation and discharge
- Chest pain when breathing
