What is Rheumatoid Arthritis? I have heard of people having it but I am not certain what it is. I have seen many people suffering from what they call a form of arthritis, but when does it become Rheumatoid?
Rheumatoid Arthritis is a crippling type of arthritis. People suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis or RA typically have swollen joints. Their fingers get swollen and get deformed.
