Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that affects millions of Americans. This disease can causes swelling of joint linings, and can lead to joint pain, bone erosion, or joint deformity. Severe cases can even affect your other organs, such as your eyes, skin, blood vessels, and lungs. Rheumatoid arthritis usually starts in the minor joints in your hands and feet but can quickly harm your knee, shoulder, elbow, and hip joints. When rheumatoid arthritis gets bad enough, it could force you to quit working. There is no known cure for rheumatoid arthritis, though several treatment options exist including medication, physical therapy, or surgery. When you are unable to work because of your rheumatoid arthritis, it can be difficult to pay your medical bills.
