The primary symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis are stiffness, pain, and swelling of peripheral joints. Persistent inflammation results in many systemic and extra-articular manifestations involving many organ systems.

Analgesic effects of NSAIDs are based mainly on the inhibition of COX-enzyme and consequently the production of prostaglandins.
