Autoimmune is an abnormal condition in which the immune system produces antibodies against its own tissues. Autoimmune is also relating to a disease that is caused by lymphocytes that is produced against substances naturally present in the body. Many scientists started believing that rheumatoid arthritis is causing the type of autoimmune disease.

The autoimmune disease attacks the joints and with this disease it’s possible to get strep throat and start developing psrosis. When the body starts sensing the danger from a virus or an infection the immune system attacks the virus.

Having an autoimmune disease can cause damage to the body. It can affect some of the joints. Some parts in the body that can react to the autoimmune disease can cause high stress and also can damage the tendons, which can attack the muscle to the bone.
