Given the first and most common symptoms.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thank you for using Healthcaremagic to post your health query.

The main symptom of Rheumatoid arthritis is pain and stiffness, in multiple and symmetric joints especially in the morning. These symptoms will develop gradually for a time longer then 6 weeks.
Of course can be other symptoms like swelling, nodules in the joints, and deformity in later stages.

Hope this answers your question.
Let me know if you need more clarifications.

Regards,
Dr. Papaqako
