RA is an autoimmune disease that causes chronic inflammation to the lining of joints, which leads to joint damage and debilitating pain.  Mymee helps clients to reduce RA symptoms.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Symptoms

The impact of rheumatoid arthritis on the body can extend well beyond joint pain. From dry eyes to the potential for heart disease, the inflammation from RA may cause multiple health issues. Plus, people with RA experience unpredictable periods of flare-ups and remission, making the management of symptoms all the more difficult. 

Early detection and intervention each improve the outlook for RA. Inflammation is lower in the earlier stages of rheumatoid arthritis and more easily treated. Knowing the symptoms of RA can help to receive a diagnosis more quickly, preventing permanent damage to the joints and other body systems.

Among the most common RA symptoms are: 

  • Painful, swollen joints
  • Stiffness in multiple joints at once
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Similar symptoms on both sides of the body, such as pain in both knees or both wrists at once
  • Lumps called rheumatoid nodules, which grow beneath the skin near the joints
