Several permanently inflamed joints characterize rheumatoid arthritis. Internal inflammation can cause general physical weakness, drowsiness, and exhaustion. This state of extreme exhaustion is also referred to as “fatigue.” Some consider this to be the most severe symptom of the disease. Other common symptoms include joint pain and swelling, as well as stiffness and physical weakness later on. Non-specific symptoms, such as exhaustion, frequently appear earlier in the disease’s progression. However, the symptoms and progression of rheumatoid arthritis can vary greatly.
