Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an auto-immune disorder in which the bodies immune system attacks synovial membranes in the joints. These membranes create  lubricating fluid and thus when damaged or destroyed inflammation occurs and thus the pain of arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis can occur at any age even under 18 years old. Rheumatoid arthritis causes stiffness, swelling, fatigue, anemia, weight loss, fever, pain and more...

Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory type of arthritis, and is an overactive autoimmune disorder. Like other autoimmune disorders, rheumatoid arthritis is a "self attacking" disease. Where the person's immune system incorrectly identifies the synovial membrane as foreign. Resulting in inflammation that damages both cartilage and tissues around and inside the joints. Often, the bone surfaces are destroyed because inflammation in the joints causes enzyme  production that digest nearby tissue. The human body replaces the damaged tissue with scar tissue, causing spaces within the joints to become smaller and the bones may fuse together. Rheumatoid arthritis creates stiffness, swelling, fatigue, anemia, weight loss, fever, and a crippling severe pain. Rheumatoid arthritis normally occurs in people below 40 years old. Over 2 million Americans have this health problem, of which 75% are female. Juvenile arthritis is a form of rheumatoid arthritis that strikes children under 16 years of age, affecting over 71,000 young people who are mainly female. The start of rheumatoid arthritis maybe triggered by physical or emotional stress, poor diet and nutrition, or even bacterial infection. While osteoarthritis affects individual joints, rheumatoid arthritis can affect all of the body's synovial joints. Joints affected by rheumatoid arthritis tend to make a sound like crinkling cellophane, and osteoarthritic joints make banging, clicking, or popping noises. Arthritis can also be caused by bacterial, viral, or fungal infection of a joint. The microorganisms most commonly involved in this type of the disorder are streptococci, staphylococci, gonococci, hemophilus or tubercle bacilli, and fungi such as Candida albicans. Normally the infecting organism gets to a joint via the bloodstream from an infection somewhere else in the body, but injury or even surgery can cause joint infection. Symptoms include redness, swelling, pain, and tenderness in the affected joint, often accompanied by systemic symptoms of infection such as fever, chills, and body aches.
