Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic illness that affects the joints, mostly small joints of the hands and feet but can also affect the big joints. It may cause swelling of the joints, cause a lot of pain, morning stiffness which if not treated, may lead to joint deformities over a period of time. This disease can also affect the eyes, lungs, skin and nerves, and other parts of the body.
