Arthritis (from Greek arthro-, joint + -itis, inflammation; plural: arthritides) is a group of conditions where there is damage caused to the joints of the body. Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in people over the age of 55. Arthritis is frequently accompanied by joint pain. Joint pain is referred to as arthralgia.
The cause for RA is unknown; however, the immune system plays a very important role in disease development. Rheumatoid arthritis occurs as a result of an abnormal immune system response, but the cause for this abnormal response has not been identified. The cause of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is not fully understood. Genes play a role in rheumatoid arthritis, but experts do not know exactly what that role is. For most people with RA, the disease does not run in their families and they do not pass it along to their children.
Doctors don't know what causes this process that leads to rheumatoid arthritis. It's likely that rheumatoid arthritis occurs as a result of a complex combination of factors, including your genes, your lifestyle choices, such as smoking, and things in your environment, such as viruses
