Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic disease. It attacks several body joints including the knee joint. It’s symmetrical. The disease usually affects the same joint on both sides of your body. Rheumatoid arthritis causes knee pain and stiffness since the synovial membrane covering the knee joint starts to swell. In Rheumatoid arthritis, the immune system attacks its own tissues. It damages normal tissue (such as ligaments and cartilage) and softens the bone.
