Rheumatoid Arthritis, or RA, is a type of auto-immune disease where the body's immune system starts attacking its own tissues and joints. It can happen at any age and is one of the most common form of arthritis. Some of the common symptoms are painful and swollen joints, fatigue and weakness. For people living with RA, it is a daily struggle to balance their personal and professional lives with the unpredictability of this painful disease. FieryBones has been created to connect all the RA warriors and caregivers throughout the world on a single platform. Nothing makes us feel better than reading inspirational blogs of how our RA peers are coping with this illness and sharing our story with the community that truly understands!
Welcome to the community for people with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). This is run by the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society (NRAS) and exists to help you find support and information from other people living with RA. You may be newly diagnosed or have had RA for some time or you might not have a diagnosis yet - everyone is welcome! NRAS also support people with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) and other forms of inflammatory arthritis. NRAS is a UK based charity providing support, information and advocacy for people with rheumatoid arthritis and juvenile idiopathic arthritis, their families, friends and carers. Our vision is for everyone with RA to be able to live the life they want to. We have a helpline which is open Mon-Fri, 9.30am - 4.30pm and is free for landlines. We also have a huge range of free information booklets available to order or download from our website.
