Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a disease in which the body's immune system begins to attack its own tissues, causing inflammation. RA most commonly affects the joints of hands and feet.
Inflammation due to RA can cause pain and swelling, as well as permanent damage in the joints.
RA can make daily activities difficult and affect the quality of life if not treated in time.
Research has shown that early treatment with medication can reduce joint damage and control the disease.
