Twelve Early Signs of Rheumatoid Arthritis
(http://ow.ly/c3rt30nl7lU)

Knowing the first signs of rheumatoid arthritis can help you identify the condition early on and improve your health outcomes. Surprisingly, before feeling pain you may feel fatigued and run down. This could affect your daily activities and even cause depression. This reaction is thought to be the result of your body’s reaction to the inflammation occurring in your joints. Many people may miss this first sign, so it’s important to bring up with your doctor if it comes on suddenly.

Early Signs of Rheumatoid Arthritis
(http://ow.ly/Nnsl30nl7lT)

If you wake up in the mornings feeling unusually stiff, this could be the first sign of rheumatoid arthritis. If this stiffness does not subside several hours after waking, this could be a sign of inflammatory arthritis. In addition to the mornings, it’s likely that you may also experience the same stiffness following any prolonged inactivity such as sitting for several hours or more. It’s common to feel this stiffness starting in your hands with rheumatoid arthritis.

(http://ow.ly/wHCo30nl7lR)

If the body loses too much bone or not enough is made, this is referred to as osteoporosis. With this bone disease, bones lose their density and become weak or brittle. This disease is common, and several different diseases can put you at increased risk. These can vary from diabetes, chronic kidney disease, cancer, autoimmune disorders, and more. Different medications you take may cause harm to your bones, so it’s important to speak with your doctor about any negative side effects you may experience.

(http://ow.ly/k6sJ30nl7lL)

You may have heard that coconut oil can be a great solution to dry skin, and even help to improve psoriasis. When virgin coconut oil is applied to the skin, it helps to moisturize which is important in psoriasis therapy. However, it shouldn't be used as a stand-alone treatment but instead could be added into your treatment plan. Talk to your doctor before using coconut oil to see if it could be a good addition for you.

If you are experiencing inflammation in your elbow, this can cause pain and limit your range of motion. You may start to experience pain or burning in the affected area and may also have decreased grip strength.
