Rheumatoid Arthritis Symptoms
Rheumatoid Arthritis is a long-term or chronic disease marked by symptoms of inflammation and pain in the joints. These symptoms and signs occur during periods known as flares. Other times are known as periods of remission — this is when symptoms dissipate completely.
RA symptoms, which can occur throughout the body, include:
- Joint pain
- Joint swelling
- Joint stiffness
- Loss of joint function
Symptoms can vary from mild to severe. It’s important not to ignore your symptoms, even if they come and go.
