What is Rheumatoid Arthritis? | RA Awareness Day 2017
 
02:21
The 2nd of February is Rheumatoid Arthritis Awareness Day and 3D4Medical made a video explaining more about the condition. Find more info at: http://rheum4us.org/what-is-rheumatoid-awareness-day/ Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease where a person's immune system attacks and targets the healthy connective tissue surrounding joints in the body. It affects approximately 1% of the population. Rheumatoid Arthritis most commonly affects individuals aged between 30 to 60, however onset can occur at any age. Women have more than double the chance of developing Rheumatoid Arthritis. Other risk Factors include having a close relative with Rheumatoid Arthritis and smoking. When the immune system attacks the connective tissue surrounding a joint, this causes inflammation. Patients experience swollen, stiff, and painful joints, which can feel warm. Symptoms are worst in the morning and after periods of inactivity. The most common joints affected are the small joints of the hands, feet and ankles - however larger joints may also be affected. Symptoms usually occur symmetrically on both sides of the body. This initial inflammation can lead to long term joint damage and joint deformities, so early management is key. People living with Rheumatoid arthritis experience “Flare Ups” of more severe symptoms which can last from a few days up to a month. Rheumatoid Arthritis is mostly managed with medications targeting the immune system, which aim to decrease the inflammation and damage to the joints. Other medications are given for initial symptom relief however these do not combat disease progression. Intramuscular injections can provide relief from symptoms, especially during flare ups. If the condition is allowed to progress, it can lead to permanent joint damage consisting of cartilage destruction and bone erosion. Depending on the severity of the joint damage a patient may choose to avail of joint replacement surgery which serves to ease pain and increase joint mobility. Rheumatoid Arthritis is known to cause fatigue - however, keeping active is shown to benefit patients. Regular low impact exercise can strengthen muscles and keep connective tissue healthy providing better protection against flare ups.

8 Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis | Signs  of Rheumatoid Arthritis
 
05:26
8 Signs and Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis Rheumatoid arthritis is a serious autoimmune disease that attacks the joints and other body parts. But RA can be tough to diagnose. Symptoms can mimic other illnesses, or they may flare, then fade, only to flare again somewhere else. Lab tests aren’t perfect—you can test negative for RA factors and still have it. And X-rays don’t show signs until later on. Here are some tricky rheumatoid arthritis symptoms and hints that they’re due to RA and not some other condition. Hard to heal injuries It’s possible to think you have an injury—such as a sprained ankle that doesn’t seem to heal—when the symptoms are actually due to RA. This is more common in younger people, says Lisa A. Mandl, MD, MPH, assistant attending rheumatologist at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. Numbness or tingling in the hands What happens is that the swelling in the arm compresses the nerves going into the hands. The sensation is often worse at night. If you go to a doctor with these symptoms and don’t have (or tell him or her about) other RA symptoms, you may be diagnosed only with carpal tunnel syndrome. Foot trouble One area in which people often have RA-related pain or inflammation is the forefoot. Women often stop wearing heels and head to a podiatrist due to the pain. Some people with RA may also develop pain in the heel because of plantar fasciitis, a common foot disorder caused by swelling of the tissue at the bottom of the foot, near the heel. Eye problems People with RA are also at risk for Sjogrens syndrome, an autoimmune disorder that can cause dryness of the eyes, mouth, nose, throat, or skin due to inflammation that stops glands from releasing moisture, This can happen even in the early stages of RA, but it’s unlikely to be the only symptom. Most people with dry eyes head to an eye doctor to find out the cause, but Dr. Mandl recommends telling your doctor—even an eye doctor or other specialist—about additional symptoms you’re having in any part of the body. Pairs of achy joints One of the most predominant symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis is aching in the joints. People often think their pain is due to overexertion or osteoarthritis, the type of arthritis common in old age. This achiness can also be misdiagnosed as fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome (fatigue is another symptom of RA). RA joint pain is not fleeting; it usually lasts longer than a week. It can also be symmetrical, meaning both hands, feet, knees, or ankles will be affected at the same time. Morning stiffness Another characteristic of rheumatoid arthritis is stiffness in the joints in the morning. Again, this is also a common problem in osteoarthritis, which can cause pain after long periods of inactivity, like sleeping. The difference between the two is that osteoarthritis pain usually subsides in about a half hour. Stiffness from rheumatoid arthritis will last much longer, possibly for a good chunk of the day. The right kind of exercise can help alleviate stiffness for people with RA and osteoarthritis pain. Locked joints People with RA can sometimes experience locked joints, particularly in the knees and elbows. This happens because there’s so much swelling of the tendons around the joint, the joint cannot bend. It can lead to cysts behind the knee that can puff out and inhibit motion. The symptom can be mistaken for a meniscus tear, a knee joint injury that's common in sports, and which can also lead to cysts. Nodules These are firm lumps that grow under the skin near the affected joints. They often appear at the back of the elbows, and sometimes people get them in the eyes. They're more common in people who have advanced rheumatoid arthritis, but occasionally show up earlier, The nodules can at times mimic gout, another form of arthritis.

Osteoarthritis vs Rheumatoid Arthritis Nursing | Symptoms, Pathophysiology, Treatment Mnemonic NCLEX
 
16:58
Osteoarthritis vs. rheumatoid arthritis (OA vs. RA) nursing lecture about the symptoms, pathophysiology, treatment, and nursing interventions for the NCLEX exam. Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis are both forms of arthritis that affect the joints but in different ways. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis that develops due to the deterioration of the articular cartilage. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune condition that causes inflammation of the synovium within the joint space. In severe cases of RA, the patient can experience bone fusion (ankylosis). Osteoarthritis vs rheumatoid arthritis symptoms include: OA: crepitus, bony outgrowths (Heberden and Bouchard's Nodes which are found on the hands..see pictures in video), joints will feel hard, bony, morning stiffness LESS than 30 minutes, only affects joints (not other systems of the body), and is unsymmetrical. RA: morning stiffness GREATER than 30 minutes, soft, warm, swollen joints, affects joints symmetrically and other systems of the body (fever, anemia, heart, lungs etc.) Treatment for osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis include: NSAIDs, tylenol, physical exercise (low-impact exercises, range of motion, wearing-bearing), assistive devices, heat and cold therapy, corticosteriods (oral for RA and intra-arthritic injections in OA). In severe cases of rheumatoid arthritis DMARDs (disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs) may be used, and these medications suppress the immune system from attacking the joint along with helping slow down the destruction of the disease on the joints and bones.

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease affecting the lining of the joints that connect your bones. This disorder is more common in women than men, and most commonly develops in both men and women around ages 40-60. Common symptoms of RA include swelling or tenderness in joints often accompanied by a warm sensation, stiffness in joints and muscles lasting up to a few hours after waking in the morning, fatigue, fever, and weight loss. RA patients may also notice the presence of rheumatoid nodules anywhere on the body, but particularly close to joints. These nodules are bumps ranging from the size of a pea to that of a walnut. If left untreated, RA can destroy joints and cause permanent damage and disfigurement to bones. RA patients also have a higher chance of developing osteoporosis, serious infections, lung disease, and heart attacks. While there is currently no cure for Rheumatoid Arthritis, there are medications available to treat symptoms and effects of the disease including Non-Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs), Disease Modifying Anti Rheumatic Drugs (DMARDs), and biologic agents. Regular exercise, hot and cold compresses, and relaxation techniques can also be helpful in alleviating symptoms of RA. Talk to your doctor to identify the best method of treatment for you. Click the link above to learn more about the causes, effects, and treatments of RA.

11 Effects of Rheumatoid Arthritis on the Body
 
10:27
11 Effects of Rheumatoid Arthritis on the Body Overview Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is more than just joint pain. This chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease causes your body to mistakenly attack healthy joints and leads to widespread inflammation. While RA is notorious for causing joint pain and inflammation, it can also cause other symptoms throughout the body. Read on to learn more about the possible symptoms of RA and its overall effects on the body. The effects of rheumatoid arthritis on the body RA is a progressive autoimmune disease that mainly affects your joints. According to Arthritis Foundation, about 1.5 million U.S. people live with RA. Anyone can get RA, but it generally begins between the ages of 30 and 60. It also tends to affect women nearly three times more than men. The exact cause of RA is unknown, but genetics, infections, or hormonal changes may play a role. Disease-modifying medications can help slow the progression of RA. Other medications, combined with lifestyle changes, can help manage the effects and in turn improve your overall quality of life. Skeletal system One of the first signs of RA is inflammation of the smaller joints in the hands and feet. Most of the time, symptoms affect both sides of the body at once. Common symptoms include pain, swelling, tenderness, and stiffness, which is more pronounced in the morning. Morning RA pain can last for 30 minutes or longer. RA can also cause tingling or burning sensations in the joints. Symptoms can come and go in “flares” followed by a period of remission, but the initial stages can last at least six weeks. Symptoms of RA can occur in any of the body’s joints, including your: fingers wrists shoulders elbows hips knees ankles toes RA can also result in: bunions claw toes hammer toes As the disease progresses, cartilage and bone are damaged and destroyed. Eventually, supporting tendons, ligaments, and muscles weaken. This can lead to a limited range of motion or difficulty moving the joints properly. In the long term, joints can become deformed. Having RA also puts you at greater risk of developing osteoporosis, a weakening of the bones. This in turn can increase your risk of bone fractures and breaks. Chronic inflammation of the wrists can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome, making it difficult to use your wrists and hands. Weakened or damaged bones in the neck or cervical spine can cause chronic pain. Your doctor may order X-rays to investigate the extent of joint and bone damage from RA. Circulatory system RA can affect the system responsible for making and transporting blood throughout your body, too. A simple blood test can reveal the presence of an antibody called the rheumatoid factor. Not all people with the antibody develop RA, but it’s one of many clues doctors use to diagnose this condition. RA increases your risk for anemia. This is due to a decreased production of red blood cells. You may also have a higher risk of blocked or hardened arteries. In rare cases, RA can lead to inflammation of the sac around the heart (pericarditis), the heart muscle (myocarditis), or even congestive heart failure. A rare but serious complication of RA is inflammation of the blood vessels (rheumatoid vasculitis, or RA rash). Inflamed blood vessels weaken and expand or narrow, interfering with blood flow. This can lead to problems with the nerves, skin, heart, and brain. Skin, eyes, and mouth Rheumatoid nodules are hard lumps caused by inflammation that appear under the skin, usually near joints. They can be bothersome, but usually aren’t painful. As many as 4 million U.S. people have an inflammatory disease called Sjogren’s syndrome, according to the Sjogren’s Syndrome Foundation. About half of these individuals also have RA or a similar autoimmune disease. When the two diseases are present, it’s called secondary Sjogren’s syndrome. Sjogren’s causes severe dryness — especially of the eyes. You may notice a burning or gritty feeling. Prolonged dry eyes increases the risk of eye infection or corneal damage. Though it’s rare, RA can also cause inflammation of the eye. Sjogren’s can also cause a dry mouth and throat, making it difficult to eat or swallow, especially dry foods. Chronic dry mouth can lead to: tooth decay gingivitis oral infections You may also experience swollen glands in the face and neck, dry nasal passages, and dry skin. Women may also feel vaginal dryness. Respiratory system RA increases the risk of inflammation or scarring of the linings of the lungs (pleurisy) and damage to lung tissue (rheumatoid lung). Other problems include: blocked airways (bronchiolitis obliterans) fluid in the chest (pleural effusion) high blood pressure in the lungs (pulmonary hypertension) scarring of the lungs (pulmonary fibrosis) rheumatoid nodules on the lungs

Be Aware Of The Signs And Symptoms Of Rheumatoid Arthritis | Time to Meet the Doctor
 
01:29
This video is about Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis.Rheumatoid arthritis Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic disorder in which the small joints of the hands and feet of the affected person get inflamed. It affects the lining of the joints and causes pain and swelling that may lead to joint deformity and erosion if left untreated. This disorder of the autoimmunological system occurs when the body's immune system attacks the body's own tissues. Although this medical condition usually causes joint problems only, sometimes it may go on to affect other body organs like skin, lungs, eyes and blood vessels as well. Some of the signs and symptoms that are indicative of rheumatoid arthritis are: 1. Problems in the joints One of the most common symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis is swelling of the joints that become tender and painful. During the early days, only the smaller joints are affected, especially the finger and toe joints. However as the disease worsens, the symptoms spread to other body parts like knees, wrists, elbows, ankles etc. Joint redness and warmth are also characteristic features of rheumatoid arthritis. It is also recognized by joint deformity and stiff joints. 2. Fever, fatigue and loss of weight Fatigue is a common symptom of rheumatoid arthritis. It may be a result of the body's reaction to insomnia, anemia, and inflammation. It may also be caused due to loss of appetite and the consequent and unintended weight loss. Sometimes rheumatoid arthritis is also accompanied by fever. 3. Rheumatoid nodules Another symptom of rheumatoid arthritis is the presence of firm bumps of tissues under the skin on the arms. These bumps are known as rheumatoid nodules and may be painful. The nodules may come and go depending on the severity of the disease at a particular time. During flares, they may appear, and they may subside during the periods of remission just as all the other symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.

Rheumatoid Arthritis of the hand - Everything You Need To Know - Dr. Nabil Ebraheim
 
05:50
Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video describes the condition of rheumatoid arthritis, the etiology, signs and symptoms, the diagnostic tests and indications, and the treatment options and prognosis. Rheumatoid Arthritis involves the synovium of the joints. The condition of rheumatoid arthritis will result in deformities. Rheumatoid Arthritis occurs in females more than males. There may be a hereditary component with Rheumatoid Arthritis. Rheumatoid Arthritis has spontaneous remissions and exacerbations. The disease can have a systemic nature. Pain and stiffness of joints especially in the morning (morning stiffness). Rheumatoid Arthritis is typically polyarticular, bilateral and symmetrical and most commonly affects the hands and feet. x-rays show periarticular erosions at the time of diagnosis. Osteopenia and minimal osteophyte formation favor the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis. Pathogenesis Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disease. The disease has two components: immunological reaction. Increased degradative enzymes. The IgM (Rheumatoid factor) is produced by the plasma cell as ana antibody to the native IgG, which is altered in RA. 70% of patient with RA have rheumatoid factor positive. Leucocytes are attracted to the immune complex forming deposits over the inflammatory surface of the synovium. These leucocytes ingest fibrin and immune complex and is called the Rheumatoid cells. The leucocytes release lysosomal enzymes that cause acute inflammatory response and tissue necrosis as well as inflammatory mediators ( IL-1, IL-6, TNF alpha). The chondrocytes respond to stimulation by TNF- alpha, IL-1 and other inflammatory mediators causing cells to become activated and secrete more metalloproteinases which lead to cartilage damage. The synovium becomes hypertrophied (pannus), showing intimal hyperplasia and infiltration by plasma cells and lymphocytes. Stages of Rheumatoid Arthritis Early: acute: hot swollen tender joints (synovitis) •MCP swelling •Wrist swelling •Flexor sheath synovitis Complicated: digital vasculitis, ecchymosis, skin atrophy, nodules. Advanced •Swelling of MCP joints •Lateral slippage of extensor tendon ruptures •Ulnar deviation of fingers •Xrays show destruction of MCP with subluxation, ulnar deviation and wrist destruction. •Finger deformities: Mallet, boutonniere, Swan neck The thumb is also involved. These changes occur due to proliferation, inflammation and hypertrophy of the synovium. Involvement of the distal radioulnar joint is usually associated with rupture of the extensor digiti minimi. Rheumatoid nodules 25% of patients with RA will have subcutaneous nodules on extensor surfaces of elbow and forearm. Nodules are often multiple and seen along the ulnar margin of the forearm or pulp of the digits. Vasculitis is more common in patients with SC nodules, it is strongly seropositive disease (aggressive) with less favorable prognosis. Treatment •Synovitis: splint and medical treatment •Joint space narrowing, bone erosions and osteopenia: synovectomy. •Joint destruction/fixed deformity/ loss of hand function: surgery based on condition Before operating on RA patients, x-ray of the cervical spine is needed because the patient may have subluxation of C1-C2. Metacarpophalangeal joint arthroplasty of the fingers usually results in decreased extensor lag and improvement of the ulnar drift.

Symptoms during early stage of Knee Arthritis and treatment - Dr. Deepak Inamdar
 
02:40
Patients with early stage of Knee Arthritis come to me at the age of 35 to 40 years, they are mainly youngsters who are gone to the gym or to a trek and they come with knee pain. There are another group of youngsters who come with rheumatoid arthritis, a little bit younger may be 30 to 35 years. These patients often come with pain on the inner aspect of the knee, swelling on the knee, a little bit of stiffness. So these are the main symptoms of Knee Arthritis. The main treatment for this early Arthritis is, it can be depicted by the mnemonic RICE meaning rest, ice, compression and elevation. Rest means stop the patient from doing those activities for 2 to 3 weeks Which gives them comfort. Ice the part or knee for around 10 to 15 minutes duration, 3 to 5 times a day with the help of gel packs, give some sort of compression as in crape compression and some amount of elevation this along with some amount of anti inflammatory medication and Physiotherapy should help the patient get back to his normal activities. One should know that this early Arthritis is quite common among youngsters. It is seen between 35 to 40 years because that's the age when the degeneration of the knee starts or setting it. So after a trek, a hill climb or a marathon these sort of pains are quite common there is nothing to get worried about this phenomenon.

Early Rheumatoid Arthritis: Clinical Guideline for Diagnosis and Management
 
01:09:21
Rheumatoid arthritis affects 1 in 100 Australians. It is a major cause of disability and psychological distress due to its chronic, painful and disabling character. Rheumatoid arthritis, an inflammatory autoimmune disease, is the second most common type of arthritis after osteoarthritis. The disease is more common amongst women and in the older age groups. Untreated rheumatoid arthritis can result in joint damage and deformities. The disease impacts on activities of daily living, capacity to work, and family life. Early diagnosis and medical intervention are critical to limiting structural damage and improving health outcomes. The Clinical Guideline for Diagnosis and Management of Early Rheumatoid Arthritis presents recommendations to assist and support clinical judgement of GPs in managing patients with rheumatoid arthritis. This program, in line with the Guideline, focuses on diagnosis, early management, and coordination of multidisciplinary care needs for people with rheumatoid arthritis. Pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions are reviewed. The Clinical Guideline recognises the need for every patient with rheumatoid arthritis to have a thorough assessment of their individual needs; access to a range of health professionals; and a comprehensive care plan. This program is one of four in the Musculoskeletal Guideline Series. The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) has developed national musculoskeletal clinical guidelines for general practitioners and other primary care health professionals for osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis and osteoporosis.

http://www.rheumatoidarthritistreatment101.com/ Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis don't stay forever, and they come and go as per the degree of tissue inflammation. Disease is active when tissues of the body are inflamed. When the inflammation subsides, disease is in remission. When the disease is active, symptoms include lack of appetite, inactivity, muscle and joint aches, low-grade fever and stiffness. Joint and muscle stiffness is more acute during morning and after a period of inactivity.

Cure Arthritis : http://health-and-beauty-base.com/o8l5 http://health-and-beauty-base.com/healthy-aging/arthritis/how-to-cure-arthritis-shoulder-pain.html Rheumatoid arthritis is considered to be an inflammatory condition. The cause of this disease is not yet known but there are some studies that indicate the immune system of the body attacks the tissues that surround the joints. More women than men suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. The disease usually hits those people in the age range of 20 to 50. However, it can also affect very young children in the form of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis symptoms are slightly different than rheumatoid arthritis in adults. The basic symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis may come and disappear over a period of time. Perhaps the most common symptom of rheumatoid arthritis is a swelling and pain in the joints, particularly in the smaller joints such as the feet and hands. After waking many patients experience an aching in the joints. This is a common arthritis rheumatoid symptom and can be very debilitating. Rheumatoid arthritis causes a loss of mobility in the joints that are affected, such as the knees. This can lead to a loss of strength in the muscles that surround the affected joints. When a patient becomes tired there can be a flare up of swelling which can cause problems with every day activities. Another arthritis rheumatoid sign symptom is a fever. Many patients will experience a low-grade fever that comes and goes from day to day.

Early Signs of Rheumatoid Arthritis
 
05:09
Early Signs of Rheumatoid Arthritis. What is rheumatoid arthritis? Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder that causes chronic inflammation of joints. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) tends to begin slowly with minor symptoms that come and go, usually on both sides of the body, and progress over a period of weeks or months. Symptoms of this chronic disease vary from person to person and can change from day to day. Bouts of disease activity are called flare-ups, and inactive periods are called remission. Fatigue. You may feel unusually fatigued well before any other symptoms become obvious. Fatigue can precede the onset of other symptoms by weeks or months. It may come and go from week to week or day to day. Fatigue is sometimes accompanied by a general feeling of ill health or even depression. Morning stiffness. Morning stiffness is often an early sign of arthritis. Stiffness that lasts for a few minutes is usually a symptom of a degenerative form of arthritis. Stiffness that lasts for several hours is generally a symptom of inflammatory arthritis and is typical of RA. You may also feel stiffness after any period of prolonged inactivity like napping or sitting. Joint stiffness. Stiffness in one or more of the smaller joints is a common early sign of RA. This can occur at any time of day, whether you are active or not. Typically, stiffness begins in the joints of the hands. It usually comes on slowly, although it can come on suddenly and affect multiple joints over the course of one or two days. Joint pain. Joint stiffness is often followed by joint tenderness or pain during movement or while at rest. This also affects both sides of the body equally. In early RA, the most common sites for pain are the fingers and wrists. You may also experience pain in your knees, feet, ankles, or shoulders. Minor joint swelling. Mild inflammation of the joints is typical early on, causing your joints to appear bigger than normal. This swelling can also cause joints to feel warm to the touch. Flare-ups can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, and this pattern can be expected to increase with time. Subsequent flare-ups may be felt in the same joints or in other joints. Fever. When accompanied by other symptoms like joint pain and inflammation, a low-grade fever may be an early warning sign that you have RA. However, a fever higher than 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius) is more likely to be a sign of some other form of illness or an infection. Numbness and tingling. Inflammation of tendons can create pressure on your nerves. This may cause numbness, tingling, or a burning feeling in your hands referred to as carpal tunnel syndrome. The joints of your hands or feet may even produce a squeak or crackling noise as damaged cartilage grinds against joints when you move. Decrease in range of motion. Inflammation in your joints can cause tendons and ligaments to become unstable or deformed. As the disease progresses, you may find yourself unable to bend or straighten some joints. Although your range of motion may also be affected by pain, it’s important to engage in regular, gentle exercise. Other early symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. During the early states of RA, you may feel a variety of symptoms, including: -general weakness or a feeling of malaise. -dry mouth. -dry, itchy, or inflamed eyes. -eye discharge. -difficulty sleeping. -chest pain when you breathe (pleurisy). -hard bumps of tissue under the skin on your arms. -loss of appetite. -weight loss. See your doctor to get a proper diagnosis if you’re experiencing some of the early symptoms of RA.

Common Causes for Rheumatoid Arthritis
 
00:46
http://www.rheumatoidarthritistreatment101.com/ Exact causes of rheumatoid arthritis are not known, but experts believe that it may be caused by combination of factors, such as inherited genes, presence of infectious agents in the environment, and body's response to the stressful events. Researchers believe that cause of rheumatoid arthritis could be a chronic inflammatory condition that affects other tissues as well, but affects joints most severely. Onset of RA usually occurs when people are in the age group of 30-50 years, and more than 70% of the affected people are women. As RA develops, some of the immune cells of the body recognise protein as intruder. Whatever the source, lymphocytes cells react to this protein, and this reaction real eases cytokines, which are the chemical messengers triggering destruction and more inflammation.

Rheumatoid Arthritis | RA vs. Osteoarthritis | Third Age
 
02:58
Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis are commonly mistaken for the same illness. So what are the different signs that you and your doctor should look for to make the distinction between RA and OA? Swelling and Stiffness: Swelling from RA feels soft, warm, and squishy, whereas swelling of the joints in OA feels bony and hard. With RA, stiffness is very common. It most frequently occurs within 30 minutes of waking in the morning, and gradually goes away with light movement. Stiffness with OA occurs less frequently, peaks in the evening, and worsens with movement. Where it occurs: RA is symmetrical, affecting the same joints on both sides of the body. While both RA and OA affect the hands, pain from RA typically occurs in the knuckles at the base and middle of your fingers, while OA affects the base of the wrist nearest the thumb and ends of fingers. As for lab results, with RA, your blood test data may display an elevated level of acute phase reactants and/or rheumatoid factor. OA patients' results will show normal acute phase reactant levels and hardly ever show rheumatoid factor. RA patients’ X-rays typically show rough, damaged areas at the end of bones, or cists or fluid sacs between them. OA patients' results usually show narrow spaces between bones.

Suffer From Rheumatoid Arthritis? Here’s Some Advice. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic, inflammatory illness caused by an autoimmune disease. It manifests mainly in the joints, causing pain, swelling, and rigidity. As with all the autoimmune diseases, the cause of rheumatoid arthritis is unknown at the moment, but theories suggest it comes from the interaction of different factors, such as a genetic predisposition (scientists believe that it is a polygenetic disease; that is, there are many different genes responsible), infections, and environmental factors such as smoking, stress, and more.

5 Warning Signs of Rheumatoid Arthritis
 
01:52
5 Warning Signs of Rheumatoid Arthritis 1. Joint Pain Tenderness or pain of the joints is one of the most common symptoms among patients with RA. While there are other disorders that can cause this, the pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis is "usually symmetric so it’ll affect both hands and both wrists," according to Dr. Gordon. 2. Stiffness Early morning stiffness that can last from thirty minutes to two hours is another frequently cited issue. While the symptom can sometimes be confused for an injury, it's important to consult a rheumatologist if the pain is unexplained. 3. Swelling Puffy or swollen hands, wrists, or feet can be a sign of the inflammation that occurs with RA. "It can really become enlarged and fluid can be present in the joint space itself. You can also see fluid in the knees and the ankles," says Gordon. 4. Fatigue Feeling tired or wiped out can be caused by many chronic diseases, but when considered in the context of other symptoms, fatigue among rheumatoid arthritis patients can be overwhelming and may be the reason why many end up going to a physician. 5. Loss of Function Left untreated, RA can lead to damage in the joints which can lead to loss of mobility over time. But, Gordon says that with proper diagnosis and treatment "patients who have RA really should be able to enjoy a normal quality of life."

6 Signs and Symptoms of Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis
 
06:49
6 Signs and Symptoms of Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis: 1. Joint pain Joint pain is rarely associated with children; instead, it’s generally considered an adult problem that develops as people progress from middle age into their later years. But there are a few common health conditions, like the flu, that can leave children complaining about achy joints. Of course, some kids may complain of experiencing joint pain after engaging in extensive physical activity, such as playing sports with friends. But this joint pain should pass within a few days, at most. Should a child complain of significant joint pain for a longer period of time, such as a week or more, parents should consider taking them to a physician, who can carry out a number of simple tests to see if the problem is related to juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. 2. Stiff joints Joint pain is one major symptom of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. But another sign of this condition is joint stiffness, or the inability of a child to easily move their joints around. This symptom can become visible in a few different ways. First, it tends to emerge first thing in the morning. Second, it can prevent a child from comfortably adjusting their legs, or holding an arm or leg in a position for any period of time. Finally, joint stiffness can become visible as a child tries to perform a simple function, such as using cutlery to eat their food. Should you observe a child struggling with their flexibility, ask your family doctor about juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. 3. Sudden weight loss Healthy children should gain weight at a steady rate throughout their early years and into the teenage period. Of course, some will gain more, others less — for parents, concerns should arise if the weight gain or weight loss is particularly rapid, meaning it becomes visible over weeks or a few months. Should a child complain about feeling excessively nauseous, tired, or achy — especially in and around the joints — at the same time they’re losing a substantial amount of weight, it’s possible this is a sign of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. If this combination of symptoms sounds familiar, speak with your family doctor about the matter. 4. Swelling of the skin Determining if a child’s joint stiffness or pain is a sign of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis or something less sinister — such as a common cold — can be rather difficult. One way for parents to detect the existence of arthritis is by closely examining the skin around their child’s joints. If the skin in this area is red and actually feels warm or event hot to the touch, this could be a sign that the child is struggling with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Concern about this swelling should increase if the child continues to complain about joint stiffness and pain and the swelling does not go down after a few days. Parents observing this swelling of the joints should speak with their family doctor right away. 5. Fever Parents know that kids get fevers all the time. But how do you know if a fever is an indication that something is really wrong with a child? How can a parent know that their child’s fever is a sign of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis? The answer is fairly simple: if the fever accompanies the other symptoms associated with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis — like joint pain, stiffness and swelling — then it’s time to talk to a doctor. If, however, the fever is accompanied by symptoms associated with the common cold, such as stuffy nose, coughing, and nausea, then it’s less likely arthritis is the culprit. 6. Rashes Kids and rashes go hand in hand, particularly when they’re very young and still in diapers. This close-knit connection between children and rashes can continue, however, once they start walking — take, for example, how many children receive rashes after coming across poison ivy. Children can also develop rashes if they’re allergic to a medication or something in their diet. But skin rashes can actually be an indication that a child is beginning to experience the symptoms of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. If this is the case, the rashes will appear faint and pink and over various parts of the body. And while the rashes themselves may not appear particularly dark or intense, they could last for weeks and present the child with significant discomfort.
