Rheumatoid arthritis is known to be an autoimmune disease that causes persistent inflammation of the joints. It also affects other organs in the body. The cause of rheumatoid arthritis is unknown, but it is thought to be due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors. 

The treatment of rheumatoid arthritis typically involves the use of medication to control the inflammation and pain and in some dire cases, surgery could be your best bet to repair the damaged joints.
