10. Anemia

Anemia is a disease that develops when your blood lacks enough healthy red blood cells or hemoglobin. It can be a sign of rheumatoid arthritis. Anemia is caused by a decrease in the production of one’s Red blood cells or an increase in the loss of the red blood cells due to bleeding.

11. Fatigue

Experiencing genuine fatigue means that you always feel tired and lethargic even when you haven’t done anything to cause it. This includes feeling very tired early in the morning after you have just woken up. Your fatigue will prevent you from feeling able to do any task, regardless of how light. This may be a sign of rheumatoid arthritis.

12. Flu-like signs

Firstly, if you suddenly feel yourself having a running nose, a sore throat or any other sign of the flu, you should have a thorough checkup. Be wary of your surroundings. If it isn’t cold season and you suddenly develop these symptoms out of the blue, there’s a chance it could be rheumatoid arthritis.

Remember, these twelve signs of rheumatoid arthritis won’t be experienced every “now & again” but several times a week, if not on a daily basis. This, without a doubt, is the most important aspect in determining if you have RA. If it’s just a temporary thing that passes and doesn’t return, then you’re probably in the clear.
