10 top symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis signs and
symptoms may vary in severity
and may even come and go.
Periods of increased disease
activity which is called flares, alternate with periods of relative
remission when the swelling
and pain fade or disappear.

The following are 10 among the signs and symptoms of
rheumatoid arthritis.


1. Tender, warm, swollen joints

2. Morning stiffness that may last for hours

3. Firm bumps of tissue under
the skin on your arms
(rheumatoid nodules)

4. Fatigue

5. Fever

6. Weight loss

7. Joints deformation and shifting


8. Rheumatoid arthritis will likely affect your smaller joints first
particularly the joints that
attach your fingers to your hands and the one that join your toes to your feet.

9. If not controlled early the symptoms often spread to the wrists,
knees, ankles, elbows, hips and shoulders.

10. In most cases, symptoms occur in the same joints on both sides of your body.

If you notice any of the above symptoms in your body, try to consult
your doctor. Early, diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis can be treated.
