Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune condition, which means it’s caused by the immune system attacking healthy body tissue. And it doesn’t just cause pain, swelling, and joint stiffness. It can also attack internal organs. This specific type of arthritis can last for years or become a lifelong disorder. RA isn’t curable, but it can be tamed.
