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!
