Rheumatoid arthritis typically affects the small joints of the hands and feet. The affected joints are inflamed with swelling, heat and tenderness, and the symptoms are typically worse at rest and early in the morning, which improve with activity. Patients often describe swelling, pain, stiffness and reduced hand grip power and function for a few hours in the morning.
