Arthritis: The telltale sign in the eyes that could signal onset of inflammation

The condition is often confused with osteoarthritis, which develops as people get older and their joints become worn.

In the case of rheumatoid arthritis, however, immune cells start to attack the tissue that makes up joints, causing pain, stiffness and swelling.
