Early Signs of Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis causes inflammation in the joints. Not only can it affect your joints, but it can also impair your heart, eyes, skin, blood, nerves, or lungs. What makes this type of Arthritis unique from other types is that it agitates joints symmetrically. What this means is that it can affect both knees, both hands, or both wrists. If your joints are constantly in pain this can cause deformity and permanent joint damage. Rheumatoid Arthritis is incurable but it is treatable. Treatments can include a medical procedure (Arthrocentesis), seeking specialists (Rheumatologist, Geriatrician, Primary care provider), self-care (heating pad), therapies (stretching and physical therapy), or medications (Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, Immunosuppresive drug, AntiInflammatory, and Steroid). There are special creams for Rheumatoid Arthritis that can help with the pain but not the swelling. You can also treat Rheumatoid Arthritis with herbs! According to Lovetta Stine, someone who has been living with Rheumatoid Arthritis their whole life, there is a Rheumatoid Arthritis herb formula that you can order from a health herbal clinic. After five weeks of using this formula her symptoms lessoned and now she can now do daily exercise!
