Treating Your Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a disease that causes joints to become red and swollen. You’ll often feel pain and stiffness in the joints of your hands, wrists, elbows, feet, ankles, knees, or  neck. The inflammation from RA may destroy your joint tissues over time, making it difficult to perform daily activities. Although there is no cure, you may be able to relieve your RA symptoms and control the disease with medicine, exercise, and lifestyle changes. If you are currently living with or think you might have RA, use this helpful resource to understand the disease and consider your treatment preferences.
