Body Pain

RA commonly affects joints in the hands, wrists, and knees. In a joint with RA, the lining of the joint becomes inflamed, causing damage to joint tissue. This tissue damage can cause long-lasting or chronic pain, unsteadiness and deformity.

Body and Joint Pain

  • Typically, your wrists, feet, and knuckles are most commonly affected. Some people show symptoms in their ankles, knees, elbows, and shoulders.
  • Joints become stiff, particularly in the morning or after long periods of rest. Joints are often described as “tender” or “achy,” and their range of motion can be limited.
  • Along with pain and stiffness, joints affected by RA are often warm to the touch. They also become swollen.
  • Over time, the long-term damage to the joints can cause severe deformities if inflammation isn’t controlled.
