The small joints in your hands and feet are commonly affected by rheumatoid arthritis.
As opposed to osteoarthritis, which results from the wear and tear of surface joints, Rheumatoid arthritis affects the lining of joints and causes swelling that is painful and results in joint deformity.
In rheumatoid arthritis, the immune system attacks the patient’s tissues and body. Rheumatoid arthritis can affect other organs as well as joints, such as the eyes, lungs, skin, and blood vessels.
