Rhuematoid Arthuritis

Were you looking for information on Rheumatoid Arthritis? Rhuematoid arthuritis is a common misspelling of rheumatoid arthritis.
 
Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory disease that causes pain, swelling, stiffness, and loss of function in the joints. It often affects the wrist joints and the finger joints closest to the hand. This type of arthritis is different from others because it generally occurs in a symmetrical pattern, meaning if one hand is affected, the other will be as well.
 
Rheumatoid arthritis affects people differently; some only have the condition temporarily and 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. While rheumatoid arthritis occurs in all races and ethnic groups, about two to three times as many women as men have the disease.
