People with RA symptoms may not have the same exact symptoms and inflammation, but here are some of the most common effects:
Chronic FatigueFeverA loss of energy, weight, and appetiteDepressionJoint PainJoint Swelling and redness
With RA, joint inflammation is often present in multiple joints: fingers and hands, elbows and shoulders, hips and knees, etc.
Swelling, tenderness and redness in joints often occurs symmetrically across a person's joints.
Pain and stiffness lasting for more than 30 minutes or after long rests should be investigated.
If these symptoms occur for 3 to 6 months or more, they may be RA symptoms.
