Rheumatoid arthritis

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

Dr. Shenna Keene is treating rheumatoid arthritis.

Signs include morning stiffness, fatigue, painful and swollen joints.

This is an autoimmune disease. The only factor that is controllable is smoking.

Follow up with a rheumatologist. There are medications to decrease inflammation. Try exercise that does not stress the joints. Get plenty of rest and support.
