RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS

 

Early Rheumatoid Arthritis Symptoms

In the early stages of rheumatoid arthritis, it is common to feel characteristic symptoms of pain and stiffness. The specific symptoms, their severity, and timing differ in each patient and may be related to how aggressively the immune system is attacking the body’s healthy tissues.

Some of the most common RA signs and symptoms include:

  • Pain and tenderness in joints for at least six consecutive weeks

  • Stiffness and  loss of range of motion in the joints

  • Stiffness in the morning lasting at least 30 minutes and up to several hours

  • Pain and soreness in one or multiple joints

  • Involvement of joints on both sides of the body

  • Pain and soreness in small joints like knuckles and toes

Rheumatoid arthritis can be debilitating and disabling.  It can cause you constant pain and loss of joint function, and even rob you of your independence. Fortunately, advances in diagnosis and treatment have made it possible to halt RA’s progress and let men and women with this all-too-common condition enjoy pain-free living with healthier joints, increased mobility, and lasting peace of mind.
