Autoimmune Disease is a case of mistaken identity where the immune system instead of attacking the microbes, antigens, bacteria and virus attacks the healthy cells and tissues. Autoimmune disease has more than 100 varieties some of which involve a single organ (like Hashimoto’s thyroiditis or type 1 diabetes) and others that can invariably attack any organ or tissues (like lupus).
Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disorder which occurs when the immune system mistakes normal cells for foreign cells and starts attacking/destroying them. It attacks the lining of the membrane surrounding the joints (synovium) and causes inflammation. Because of the inflammation the synovium thickens the lining and wears away the cartilage and bone, which causes severe pain in the joints.
