Rheumatoid Arthritus

Were you looking for information on Rheumatoid Arthritis? Rheumatoid arthritus is a common misspelling of rheumatoid arthritis.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory disease that typically causes pain, swelling, stiffness, and loss of function in the joints. This type of arthritis is different from others because it generally occurs in a symmetrical pattern, meaning that if one hand is affected, the other one usually will be as well.
Roughly 2.1 million people -- between 0.5 percent and 1 percent of the U.S. adult population, -- have rheumatoid arthritis. The condition often affects people differently; some only have it temporarily and then it goes away without causing noticeable damage, while others have a severe form that lasts a lifetime and can lead to serious joint damage and disability.
