Rheumatoid Arthritis | CompreCare | Rx Specialty Pharmacy

Rheumatoid Arthritis Treatment

Rheumatoid arthritis, or RA, is a chronic autoimmune disease that occurs when the immune system attacks the protective linings of the joints. RA commonly begins in the smallest joints of the body first – typically the hands and feet. Symptoms of RA include painful and swollen joints, subcutaneous skin nodules, fatigue and morning joint stiffness. Some patients may even experience weight loss or fever in connection to the disease. Over time, RA can cause serious joint problems, including deformity and bone erosion.

There is currently no cure for rheumatoid arthritis, and doctors and researchers are unsure as to what causes the condition. RA is most common in women between ages 40 and 60, and seems to be triggered by a combination of genetic predisposition and environmental factors like viruses and bacterial infections. Treatments are available to help manage the condition and slow its progression. Examples include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, steroids, immunosuppressants and physical therapy. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to replace or repair damaged joints and surrounding tendons.
