Causes

The cause of Rheumatoid Arthritis is not known exactly. Even though infectious agents such as viruses, bacteria, and fungi have been suspected as cause but not proved authentically. It is believed that the tendency to develop the disease may be genetically inherited. It is also suspected that certain infections or factors in the environment trigger the activation of immune system in susceptible individuals. This misdirected immune system then attacks the body’s own tissues and causes the disease.

Pain could be the very first indication and may even participate in the entire joint swelling that develops together with the arthritis.
