Rheumatoid Arthritis is a disorder of the joints. Usually the lining of joints belonging to toes and fingers are affected. However, other parts can be affected as well. It is a chronic disease, which indicates that the pain experienced in this condition, recurs at intervals. The pain usually begins at fingers and toes, and eventually proceeds to the knees, ankles, elbows, hips, and shoulders. If nothing is done about these symptoms, it will eventually lead to erosion of the bones and deformities in the joints. Women are more prone than men and usually, adults above the age of 40 suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis.
