Health Tip: Rheumatoid Arthritis Can Damage Joints

Health Tip: Rheumatoid Arthritis Can Damage Joints


(HealthDay News) -- Rheumatoid arthritis causes chronic swelling and inflammation in the joints, which can result in permanent damage and long-term complications.

The Cleveland Clinic cites these possible symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis:

  • Joints that are swollen, painful, red and tender to the touch.
  • Worn cartilage -- the cushions at the ends of bones.
  • Buildup of fluid in and around the joints.
  • Bones that rub against each other.
  • In chronic cases, potential permanent bone damage.
