What is Rheumatoid arthritis?
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
Rheumatoid arthritis or joint rheumatoid is a chronic and systemic inflammatory disorder with an unknown cause, which is indicated by symmetrical pain and swelling in several joint, morning dispassion and exhaustion. It is often accompanied with periods of aggravation and less with real recovery. The delicate reason for the rheumatism is unknown but both cellular and humoral immunity play roles in the development of this disease. Infections are mentioned as the possible causes of this disease. In this context, bacteria, mycobacteria, mycoplasma, and even viruses have been examined as causative factors.
Procedure of Rheumatoid Arthritis:
In these patients, joint damages are quickly created and advanced. Joint damages may be seen in the form of damage to the joint cartilage. In these cases, corrosion happens in the cartilage and the joint gradually loses its cartilage coverage. The bone near the joint gradually develops osteoporosis. The joint capsule or the ligaments around the joint may be exposed to damage too. By the time, the joint is deformed and the patient will have problems in using the joint. For example, the hand fingers and the wrist will be deformed and it will be hard to use the hand.
The development of joint damage will happen in most patients if they are not treated and the patients will have noticeable disability. This disease is more common between women at the age of 40-50. The risk of disease development is fixed from 50s to 70s ages and it decreases after 70s.
The Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis:
Joint symptoms: Morning dispassion that usually lasts more than one hour is one of the symptoms of this disease. Morning is the worst time for the patient and the symptoms are gradually improved by patient’s medium activity.
General dispassion is common and it reaches to its maximum after some immobility periods. Morning dispassion for more than an hour is an unchangeable manifestation of inflammatory arthritis and it may be helpful in distinguishing it from various types of non-inflammatory joint diseases.
Altogether, the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis are as follows:
- Morning dispassion of joints
- Joint inflation
- Joint pain
- Weakness and fatigue
- Rheumatoid nodules
The sick joints of this swollen disease are hot, and it leads to the destruction and deformation of engaged joint progressively.
Apart from joint affection, as Rheumatoid Arthritis is a systemic disease, there are extra-joint manifestations that are less prevalent. These manifestations include:
- Rheumatoid nodes (20-30%) are developed on the posterior surface of forearms and in the areas that are exposed to mechanical pressure.
- Pulmonary rheumatism: in which the zonal layers and lung tissue are affected.
- Heart rheumatism
