Rheumatoid arthritis is caused when your immune system is not working properly. Often abbreviated "RA," rheumatoid arthritis causes a variety of symptoms, most notably pain and swelling in the wrist and small joints of the hands and feet. It is also sometimes called rheumatoid disease because it can cause systemic illnesses that impact several organs of the body.
Are You At Risk?
Anyone can get RA, though it occurs more often in women. The onset of rheumatoid arthritis often begins in middle age and is common in older people, but children and young adults can also get it.
