Rheumatoid Arthritis ” The Unlucky Hands “

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disease that primarily affects the joints, often leading to inflammation, pain, and progressive joint damage. The term "The Unlucky Hands" may be used metaphorically to describe the unfortunate impact of RA on the hands, which are commonly affected in this condition. RA occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks the synovium, the lining of the membranes that surround the joints. This immune response results in inflammation, which can eventually lead to joint damage and deformities. The exact cause of RA is not fully understood, but a combination of genetic and environmental factors is thought to play a role.
