Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)

Arthritis Center of Nebraska can help you in the fight against rheumatoid arthritis!

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) occurs when a breakdown in the immune system affects the membrane lining in the joints. This disease can be pervasive and painful, with swelling, stiffness, and loss of function in the joints. It is different from other kinds of arthritis, in that it generally occurs symmetrically. That means if one hand or knee is involved, the other is also. RA often affects the wrist and finger joints closest to the hand, and can affect other parts of the body besides the joints. Plus, people who suffer from RA may experience fatigue, occasional fevers, and a general sense of not feeling well.

In most cases, RA is chronic, which means it can be long lasting, and can range from mild to severe. Some patients experience constant symptoms while others experience occasional flair ups in symptom severity.
