It is an informal way of referring to joint pain or joint disease.
Common arthritis joint symptoms include swelling, pain, stiffness and decreased range of motion. Symptoms may come and go. They can be mild, moderate or severe. They may stay about the same for years, but may progress or get worse over time. Severe arthritis can result in chronic pain, inability to do daily activities and make it difficult to walk or climb stairs. Arthritis can cause permanent joint changes. These changes may be visible, such as knobby finger joints, but often the damage can only be seen on X-ray. Some types of arthritis also affect the heart, eyes, lungs, kidneys and skin as well as the joints.

When one is suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, it’s clear that it’s not just joints that are affected. Rheumatoid arthritis can also cause severe fatigue, fevers, weight loss, in addition to causing problems throughout the major organs. Sufferers often experience dry mouth, dry eyes, shortness of breath, damaged nerves, anemia, and small skin lumps, just to name a few.
So, how do you get relief? If you would prefer not to take medications or undergo surgery, there are natural home remedies that have some reported rates of success in treating rheumatoid arthritis. Want to know what’s so great about these methods, in addition to getting some relief from your symptoms? The products used in these natural remedies are very easy to find. The following seven treatments are the most common homeopathic remedies and have been found to have promising results in treating rheumatoid arthritis:
Why Do I Have Rheumatoid Arthritis?
Then what’s often causing joint pain? Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder. When your immune system attacks the lining of the membrane surrounding your joints (synovium), inflammation occurs. The constant inflammation of the synovium thickens the membrane lining and wears away the cartilage and bone in your joints, causing the physical pain you experience.
The tricky thing about rheumatoid arthritis is that doctors are still unsure of what the underlying cause is. While genetics seems to be a causing factor, the funny thing is that the majority of people suffering from rheumatoid arthritis have no family history of it.
What are other risk factors that may increase your likelihood of experiencing rheumatoid arthritis?
Gender: Women are much more likely to suffer from this autoimmune disorder than men.
Weight: Overweight individuals are more prone to developing rheumatoid arthritis.
Smoking: If you smoke, you are more likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis, and if you develop it, your symptoms may be more pronounced than those who do not smoke.
Age: Rheumatoid arthritis is more likely to hit you in middle age (40 to 60).
Environment: Certain environmental exposures have been found to elevate your risk of rheumatoid arthritis, including exposure to asbestos and silica.

What Are the Symptoms?

Rheumatoid arthritis sufferers know the severity of the pain associated with stiff and sore joints. Some describe it as having sprained all the joints in their bodies at once. Couple that with fatigue, appetite loss, and feeling feverish – and they’re apt to feel downright lousy. And, unfortunately, some suffer from it for years and years. The most common signs and symptoms are:
* Swollen joints
* Tender joints
* Pain and stiffness in the joints, especially after periods of inactivity (e.g., in the morning)
* Extreme fatigue
* Weight loss
* Fever
   3 wonder herbs for treating Arthritis;
   2- GINGER

1. Aloe vera

Aloe vera is one of the most commonly used herbs in alternative medicine. Known for its healing properties, it’s popular for treating small skin abrasions. You may already have a bottle of aloe vera gel in the medicine cabinet from a past sunburn. This same type of product may be applied topically to soothe aching joints.

2. Ginger

You may have ginger in your spice cabinet for cooking, but this herb is also a staple in many alternative medicine cabinets. The same compounds that give ginger its strong flavor also have anti-inflammatory properties.
The NCCIH says that early studies in reducing joint swelling with ginger in RA are promising. But more human trials are needed to better understand its action. In folk medicine and Chinese medicine ginger is used to increase blood circulation, which brings heat and healing properties to the affected area. Research shows promise for the use of ginger in all types of arthritis.

3. Green tea

Green tea is one of the most popular beverages in the world, and has been used to reduce inflammation in the body. It’s possible that green tea can be used to treat arthritis inflammation in the form of beverages, tablets, or tinctures.
In a 2010 study, the NCCIH found that green tea might help people with osteoarthritis (OA) and RA. But many more studies are still needed to prove the potential benefits of green tea.
