(European Alliance of Associations for Rheumatology) Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an inflammatory autoimmune disease that causes pain, swelling and stiffness in the joints. It can also cause fatigue, and the underlying inflammation may affect other body systems. In people with RA, low empowerment is associated with worse health.
