What is Rheumatoid arthritis? | Dr. Kunal Shah | Best Orthopedic Doctor in Dahisar

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune and inflammatory illness in which the body's immune system mistakenly attacks healthy cells, resulting in inflammation or painful swelling in the afflicted region. It may target numerous joints at once, most often the hands, wrists, and knees, and destroy joint tissue, resulting in persistent discomfort, loss of balance or instability, and abnormalities.
Rheumatoid arthritis symptoms include joint pain and stiffness, as well as soreness and swelling. These will manifest symmetrically on both sides of the body, such as in both wrists or both knees. Weight loss, fever, fatigue, and weakness are other symptoms.
While the exact etiology of the condition is unclear, age, gender, genetics, early smoking exposure, and obesity have all been associated with an increased risk of contracting it.
