Rheumatoid Arthritis- Severe Disease of Joints

If you feel constant pain and stiffness around your joints with signs of inflammation around them, then it means that you are perhaps suffering from Rheumatoid arthritis.

This is basically a disease where your own immune system attacks your joints and makes them weak and swollen. Feeling of stiffness and pain in the knees, especially, during the morning period is a sign that you have perhaps become a victim of this disease. It usually lasts for more than an hour or so.

There is no clarity as such on the exact causes of this disease, but you can very well treat this disease if you have detected it early and followed the prescribed medications.

Below we are giving some of these.

ANTI RHEUMATOID DRUG

This drug prevents or reduces the rate at which the bones and cartilages’ are getting damaged. This is some sort of a miracle of sorts as these damages are known to be irreversible. It is highly advisable to start the treatment very early as the joints experience permanent damage at a very early stage. So now the aim is to treat the disease even before the damage starts to happen.

FISH OIL
