Symptoms  (24-Feb-2006)
Rheumatoid arthritis is in the category of conditions known as auto-immune diseases, whereby the body’s immune system starts attacking its own tissues and in this particular case, the joints will be the target.

The synovial fluid found inside the joints attacks and causes the destruction of bone and cartilage. This causes inflammation, pain, stiffness and in severe cases swollenness as well as deformities. The latter usually affect small joints but larger ones may also be affected if the inflammation is not tackled in time.

Feverishness of the whole body or of affected joints sometimes occur in acute phases. This will usually subside with either herbal remedies or medications.

Contrary to Rheumatoid arthritis, OsteoArthritis patients do not experience feverishness and deformities. Pain in the latter is also usually less acute and lasts for a shorter period.

Rheumatoid arthritis may vary greatly in severity, ranging from mild, to moderate and sometimes to severe and even crippling.

In Arthritis as well as Rheumatoid arthritis, the patient generally experience more pain after resting (like for example upon awakening in the morning) and/or after being tired; quite often also during the night depending on the acuteness of the symptoms and the effectiveness of the medications being used. This is only a general rule but many patients may experience symptoms contrary to the above.
