What is rheumatoid arthritis?

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a condition that makes the joints in your body become inflamed causing pain and stiffness. It is the second most common form of arthritis.

At the moment, there is no cure for RA but, over the years, treatment for RA has advanced significantly giving many people a better outlook.

With the right medication, many people living with RA lead near-to-normal, active lives. Research shows that the sooner treatment for RA begins, the more effective it is likely to be. This is why it’s very important to see your doctor if you are experiencing any early morning stiffness or joint pain.
