It can also lead to unwanted complications
RA-related inflammation can become so severe that it can cause problems all throughout the body. For instance, inflammation can occur in various parts of the eye, triggering unwanted complications such as blurred vision, redness, light sensitivity, and possibly blindness. It can also heighten the risk of cataracts and glaucoma. In addition, inflammation in the blood vessels going into the skin can cause skin ulcers, rashes or bumps.
