Rhumetoid Arthritis

Were you looking for information about Rheumatoid Arthritis? Rhumetoid arthritis is a common misspelling of rheumatoid arthritis.
 
As an autoimmune disease, rheumatoid arthritis causes swelling, pain, 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 will be as well. Possible causes of rheumatoid arthritis include genetics, environmental factors, and hormones. Some of the common symptoms of the disease include joint inflammation of the wrist and finger joints closest to the hand, pain and stiffness lasting more than 30 minutes in the morning, and symptoms that last for many years.
