Rheumatoid Arthritis is a connective tissue disorder. Patients experience swelling, pain and morning stiffness of multiple joints involving even smaller joints with symmetrical distribution. Most of the patients will have relentless progressive poly arthritis with multiple joint deformities and marked functional impairment. Some patients will have active stage of disease with fever, joint pain and swelling. Some will present with joint swelling and pain with no fever. Some other patients present with minimum swelling and pain but with maximum deformities.
Ayurveda explains it as Amavatha. Panchakarma therapies and oral medicines vary based on the nature of illness. Classical Ayurvedic treatment of Amavatha definitely arrests the progression of the illness with optimal improvement in the features.
