You may know that rheumatoid arthritis (RA) leaves your joints stiff and painful. You also may know about its progressive nature. Perhaps you even know your disease can affect your whole body. But you should get to know more. Finding out as much as you can is important in order to fully understand the impact it can have, not only on your body, but also on your life.
