A painful condition in our body called rheumatism is often caused by inflammation, swelling, and pain in the joints or muscles. It is commondly know that some rheumatic diseases are the result of "wear and tear" to the joints. Comes with age in other words. Other rheumatic diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, happen when the immune system becomes hyperactive; the immune system attacks the linings of joints, causing joint pain, swelling, and destruction. This might be caused by stress or maybe additives that we get in our bodies.
