A lot of people are predisposed to rheumatoid arthritis and they don't even know it. Some of them -- the smart ones anyway -- make sure they know about rheumatoid arthritis early symptoms and how they might appear. Knowing about these early rheumatoid arthritis symptoms might just mean the difference between staving off the FULL disease for years to come OR having to face it DIRECTLY every day for the rest of your life! Which sounds more appealing?
The Early Symptoms of RA...
- Frequent Morning Pain. After any long period of inactivity (I.E. sleeping) followed by a sudden increase in movement, joint pain & discomfort makes its appearance. That said, waking up FREQUENTLY with joint pain is most definitely an early sign of RA.
- Strange Bouts of Fatigue. Unexplainable "attacks" of fatigue that just hit you out of the blue. This could be daily, or just a few times a week. Whatever the frequency, check to be sure this fatigue is NOT accompanied by other rheumatoid arthritis early symptoms. When other early symptoms of RA are present, well, I'm sure you can put 2 and 2 together.
- Odd Warmth in Joints. Are your joints uncommonly warm or are they a bit redder than other areas of your skin? This could be a sign of things to come. If this warmth and redness doesn't last more than a day or two, then fortunately your worries can be put aside. Then again, if it DOES last for long periods of time, you may be looking at yet another early symptom of rheumatoid arthritis.
- Discomfort & Stiffness. This isn't really pain, but more of an overall feeling of "uncomfortableness". Your joints are stiff & tight and the level of discomfort you are feeling just isn't normal by any means.
- Loss of Appetite. You haven't lost all will to eat, you just don't have a real big desire for food anymore. In fact, you probably only eat breakfast, lunch, & dinner because its what you are used to doing. Be sure to identify other rheumatoid arthritis early symptoms before making any kind of self-diagnosis. Why? Because this symptom is kind of useless (alone) for identifying RA.
If you're able to identify these rheumatoid arthritis early symptoms before it's too late, you may have a chance to get ahead of the disease and reduce pain and discomfort before it even has the chance to start! How is that possible, you ask? Simple, you would start using easy, natural pain relief treatments -- most of which can be done at home RIGHT NOW in very little time.
