What causes Rheumatiod Arthritis (RA)?
The immune system mistakenly attacks the body’s own tissues, specifically the synovium. As a result, inflammation occurs, which can lead to pain and swelling in the joints. Most of the time, natural inflammatory processes help to clear out infections. Naturally we can heal wounds and other damage to our bodies. However, when the inflammation continues without having an infection or injury, it can become part of a disease process and, in some cases, can lead to joint damage.
Different Types of Rheumatiod Arthritis (RA)
When considering how RA may impact the body, it’s important to recognize that no two people with RA are exactly alike. Some people with moderate to severe RA may find that their symptoms come and go, while others may experience swollen and achy joints on a daily basis. But even when your RA symptoms go unnoticed, inflammation from RA can still cause ongoing damage to your joints.
