Rheumatoid Arthritis – Symptoms
By General Info
Early signs of rheumatoid arthritis can be subtle and may include achy, painful joints or minor stiffness in the morning. Smaller joints tend to be affected first, especially the joints that attach your toes to your feet and your fingers to your hands. However, larger joints like your hips, knees, and shoulders can be affected as well. Read more about what may be causing your hips to hurt here. Additional signs include tender, warm, or swollen joints, fatigue, weight loss, and firm bumps of tissue under the skin on your arms. Flare-ups and remissions are common, so make an appointment with your physician if any of these signs are persistent as early intervention results in a better prognosis.
