These types of symptoms are usually observed in the person in the initial stage of rheumatism. In the later stage the pain and swelling in the joints becomes a constant feature and it starts to cripple the smaller joints as well as bigger joints. Gradually the joints become eroded and in serious cases there is a significant destruction of the joints. But some person especially younger person suffers from these attacks acutely which involves all the joints simultaneously. This condition is called juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
