Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) can be a painful and debilitating condition. It is caused by the body's own immune system attacking the tissues found in joints or other internal organs. This leads to inflammation, and joint damage can occur, even if the pain is not very severe. Many people who suffer from RA may not be aware that they can successfully manage their RA. Effective treatments are available to help them take better control of their RA and allow them to live life on their own terms.
