Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that presents as joint pain, joint stiffness, and loss of your joint function. It’s chronic and progressive over time. Typically, rheumatoid arthritis (RA) affects both sides of your body which is how it’s typically distinguished. There are many different ways to test for RA and some of the most common are:

  • X-rays
  • Magnetic resonance imaging
  • Blood testing (Rheumatoid factor test – tests for protein called rheumatoid factor)
  • C-reactive protein testing – will be high in patients with RA

If you are struggling with symptoms that you think could be contributed to RA then it’s imperative that you see your doctor as soon as possible to get testing because the sooner that you can get treatment, the better your outcomes!

We want to help all patients keep their independence and keep pain to an absolute minimum, and we have ongoing trials to help discover more therapies to be able to do so. Let us know if there is any way that we can help.
