5 common symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis

 Rheumatoid Arthritis

Diagnosing rheumatoid arthritis can be tricky because each person with RA is affected differently. It does, however, have some common symptoms.
  1. Joint stiffness in the morning (that lasts more than 60 minutes)
  2. Joint pain
  3. Joint swelling (often seen in the hands)
  4. Weakness
  5. Tiredness
Your doctor will look for these symptoms to help diagnose you. He or she might also do blood tests and x-rays to look for additional signs of rheumatoid arthritis.
