Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder that occurs when the body’s immune system attacks the body’s own tissues by mistake. Rheumatoid arthritis can affect all areas of the body in addition to the joints, including the lungs, eyes, skin and blood vessels. Rheumatoid arthritis affects the joint’s lining and can cause a swelling that is painful. The swelling may eventually cause the bones to erode and the joints to deform, making it painful and difficult to perform the smallest of tasks.

Rheumatoid arthritis can develop in an individual of any age, but it is more common in those older than 40. Women are much more likely to develop this condition than men.
