Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disease that primarily affects the joints. Unlike osteoarthritis, which is caused by wear and tear, RA occurs when the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks the lining of the joints, leading to inflammation and joint damage. It commonly affects the hands, wrists, and feet but can also involve other joints and organs in the body.
