What is it? Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is when the bodies immune system attacks its own tissue, including joints and in severe cases it attacks internal organs.
RA affects joint linings, which in turn will cause painful swelling. Over long periods of time, the inflammation associated with RA can cause bone erosion and joint deformity. The difference between, osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis is RA is auto immune and osteoarthritis normally from over use, or wear and tear of specific joints.
