Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) - more than just joint pain [Infographic]

(BPT) - Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic disease and although symptoms can come and go, each person with RA is affected differently. Pain, swelling, and stiffness in joints are some of the many concerns for those with the disease, but not the only ones – many people with RA may develop joint damage. Fortunately, people living with RA can take steps to manage their symptoms and help stop joint damage from getting worse.
